Empoword awarded our first Build Bursary

HOME Slough are thrilled to announce that its first HOME Build bursary has been awarded to Slough’s spoken-word youth project Empoword.

As part of a key initiative to build and support home-grown work, HOME Slough have created a number award opportunities for local artists and organisations. The first round of applications took place in July and Empoword will be the first to benefit from the award pot.

The successful application from Aik Saath supports the work of Empoword, a monthly spoken word event where local young poets, rappers and storytellers meet and perform their work. The bursary will provide the group with the equipment and training to take their work from their pop-up performance space in Queensmere shopping centre to a worldwide digital space. Through training from industry experts, including the Poetry Society, and access to professional equipment the young performers will be able film and share their performances. This opportunity will not only help them to asses and improve performance skills but also spread the word of these talented local performers throughout the country and perhaps even the world.

Rob Deeks, Aik Saath, commented ‘Empoword is an incredibly exciting project to be a part of and over the last three years it's become clear to us that Slough has so much talent when it comes to spoken word and poetry. The HOME Build bursary is a fantastic opportunity to further develop talent in Slough and ensure that local artists get the development opportunities and recognition they deserve’

Milan Govedarica, the Programme Manager for HOME Slough, commented: 'We were pleased to see Empoword putting a strong bid in for HOME Build bursary and that the local decision makers (creative connectors) have recognized the value of it. We are looking forward to supporting Empoword, as a successful local community art collective, in the artistic development of their members as well as in building their reach and capacity.'

The next round of applications are now open, find out more here.
