On The Mic // Platforma 6

We’re back this month with another incredible spoken word open mic night with Leeds Poetry Festival, and this time, they’re working with Platforma 6 who will be hosting. With a great line-up of spotlight artists, including Kayo Chingonyi, and our regular Open Mic through the evening, it’ll be a fantastic night!

If you’d like a slot at the open mic then please email

Here’s a little bit more about what Counterpoint Arts are up to this year for Platforma Festival:

The biennial Platforma festival for the arts by, with and about refugees, is taking place in Yorkshire this October. Produced by Counterpoints Arts, it brings together artists, organisations, funders and others to showcase work, develop networks, share practice and to learn. Counterpoints Arts are proud to be collaborating with Leeds Poetry Festival on an evening of poetry and spoken word, as part of Platforma 6, showcasing a range of award-winning poets. There will also be a chance for you to submit and read your poems along the theme of 'Welcome'. We are particularly keen to hear from poets from refugee and migrant backgrounds for Open Mic slots. Counterpoints Arts is a leading national organisation in the field of arts, migration and cultural change
