What is REPRESENT?
REPRESENT is a poem for Parliament, created by people from across the UK for 2012. It is a partnership project between the Houses of Parliament, leading spoken word organisation Apples and Snakes and poet and performer Inua Ellams.
Between April and June 2012, we asked people form across the country to tell us their thoughts about representation in words, lyrics and poems. These contributions will be used as the basis of a poem which will be shown as a film from 1-6 August 2012.
