Multilingual Poetry Competition - South Ken Kids Festival 2020 - Consultation
Consultation on School needs and project proposals
Before we get started, a few words about the project:
Multilingual Poetry Competition 2020 (Institut Français du Royaume Uni)
The Multilingual Poetry competition comes back to the South Ken Kids Festival for its fourth year running! Due to the current Covid-19 situation and considering that the guidelines can and will probably evolve until mid-November, we decided to offer a digital competition. A creative writing and spoken word experience run by Michaël Vidon performance poet and MFL teacher.
Students work individually or in groups to produce multilingual poems to be shared with the wider school community or online. “Turn walls into doors: Embrasse le futur” will be our theme this year. The aims of this project are to improve confidence in writing and speaking English and any other languages spoken at home or studied at school.
- English (Standard and otherwise)
- MFL languages studied at school (facilitators will be specialised in French and [???] )
- Any other home and community languages
HOW WE WILL DO IT ONLINE
1 Schools need to fill in the consultation form given below so we can best tailor the project to the current needs.
2 We’ll offer some digital resources and video tutorials on the SKKF website (coming soon)
3 Creative online workshops run by Michael Vidon, available on fee £150 per workshop (special note for funding) - in October/ November
4 Grand Finale: Awards will be given to poets recognising a range of skills: Best Use of Languages, Best Imagery, Best Comedy and more. This will be either a display on the SKKF website, a video or an online live event depending on school requirements - Late November.
We understand schools have to work in very different ways. So to make this project practical, accessible and fair for all students involved, please complete this form. It is a quick consultation to tailor the project to the current school needs so we can decide what will be realistic to put forward.
