The Dreadlock Alien
On Monday, the Dreadlock Alien visited Thomas Aveling to run a workshop with some year 7 and 8 students throughout the day to inspire and help them create their own performance poetry
For most of the groups, the focus was Black History Month, and students were asked to apply their knowledge of cultural diversity to their work. It was lovely to see so many students willing to share their poetry.
Dreadlock has performed all over the world, and has even held the prestigious title of Birmingham’s Poet Laureate.
