Apples and Snakes is England’s leading organisation for spoken word, with a national reputation for producing exciting, engaging and transformative work in performance and participation.
Producing, Curating and Commissioning
Apples and Snakes raises the profile of spoken word and pushes the boundaries of the artform through producing and curating live events and creative digital content, working extensively in partnership and commissioning and touring new writing.
Apples and Snakes nurtures spoken word artists, providing guidance and support from our staff team, mentoring and shadowing opportunities, critical feedback, a wide range of masterclasses and more in-depth professional development projects and programmes at a regional and national level.
