Calling West Norwood's Angel-Headed Hipsters:

We are dreaming up a new project for West Norwood called Mother Tongue.

The idea is structured around 'cells' of up to three people who will go into public spaces in West Norwood – shop, bus stop, library, cafe, launderette, bar, pub, hipster hang-out, street corner – and perform a great short poem or fragment of a poem from a European language (to start with), first in that language and then in English translation, while a third person snaps or records the intervention for posterity and posts it to social media (#PoetrySlabs).

Watch this space...
