GOBS Collective Showcase with Casey Bailey

From the FB event:
Join the dynamic group of Nottingham spoken-word artists GOBS Collective this March as they showcase their incredible creative works – poetry films and live performances – alongside Birmingham Poet Laureate Casey Bailey.
GOBS Collective was launched in March 2020 with poetry workshops, mentoring sessions and performances in NTU’s Dance Studio, for spoken-word artists in Nottingham. When the world went into lockdown following the news of the Covid-19 pandemic, GOBS Collective continued their workshops with Lead Writers Bridie Squires and Ioney Smallhorne through online video-chat sessions.
Poets from the programme are set to deliver a live digital showcase of poetry films and performances alongside a special extended set from Birmingham Poet Laureate Casey Bailey on Saturday 27 March, 7pm, as a free Live Zoom Webinar.
Casey Bailey is a writer, performer and educator, born and raised in Nechells, Birmingham, UK. He released his debut full collection of poetry, ‘Adjusted’ in 2018 with Verve Poetry Press and his second collection Please Do Not Touch will be published by Burning Eye in 2021. Casey’s play ‘GrimeBoy’ will be arriving on the stages of a number of theatres in 2021. Casey’s poetry has featured in a number of anthologies and he was commissioned by the BBC to write ‘The Ballad of The Peaky Blinders’ in 2019. In 2020 the poem was internationally recognised, winning a Webby Award. Casey has performed his poetry nationally, and internationally.
Casey was named as one of Birmingham Live’s Birmingham ’30 under 30’ of 2018. He was also recognised in 2019 when he was made a Fellow of the University of Worcester. Casey was named the Greater Birmingham Future Face of Arts and Culture 2020.
