A unique, one-off masterclass at the William Morris Gallery. Learn to MC, compose and perform lyrics about rebellion and revolt with potent lyricist, Grime enthusiast and hip-hop artist Lemzi and artist-in-residence Daniel Baker.

William Morris Gallery artist-in-residence Daniel Baker is researching connections between Morris’s political poetry and the lyrics of Grime artists such as Skepta and Stormzy. Baker says “Like Morris, many Grime artists use song writing as a way of expressing their anger about poverty, racism, and social exclusion, and articulating visions for social change”

Work with Baker and Lemzi to explore the power of your voice and learn hands-on skills in MCing and lyrics.

All levels of experience welcome

For young people aged 16-25
