What is StreetSpeak?

Streetspeak harnesses young people’s interest in football to develop their literacy skills and raise their self-esteem and aspirations.
In and around Preston, five respected poets lead workshops with young people, encouraging them to write and perform poetry.
Eight hundred young people will take part in the three-year project.

At the end of the project, the young people will exhibit and perform their poetry in a multimedia presentation at the National Football Museum. Their poems will be published in a final anthology. Street Speak 2009
