Join Cultureword writers and Out of Bounds Poets at a performance and discussion on the transformative poetics of place in Britain today. The Out of Bounds anthology is comprised of new poetry that questions stereotypes and conventional tropes around black people and space in UK society and literature. Hear contributors Shamshad Khan, Cheryl Martin, John Siddique, Pete Kalu and Kayo Chingonyi and watch film-poems from Cultureword writers.

Beyond Bounds builds on the anthology Out of Bounds (Bloodaxe) and continues the nationwide touring phase of a project hosted by the Universities of Newcastle and Stirling. Mingle with poets and guests and add your voice to help create a digital poetic map.
