‘To inspire and be inspired’

Everyone has something to say.

Monkfish has developed a unique approach to fusing spoken word and performance poetry with a range of skills in multimedia and performance skills for children and young people and adults from a range of abilities and backgrounds.

We offer a bespoke approach to what we do with education and community partners, whether it’s encouraging participants to work together as a collective of artists to create new work, or recording poems in our Poetry Booth.
