Happy New Year beautiful people! I hope you had a lovely break and lots of fun over the holiday season. Are you ready for another year of Young People Insight events?
I intend for this year to be bigger and better than ever for YPI, with new things happening and positive changes being made. I also plan to take steps forward that will allow YPI to transition in 2019, as I begin to hand more of my responsibility over and work more from the background. We’ll talk more about that in the months to come, but for now, I want to let you know what’s coming up in January.
This month marks three years of YPI running as the physical platform that puts on events for young people and young adults. I genuinely cannot believe that I have been able to keep it going for this long, but I am beyond happy that I have and I am excited to celebrate this milestone.
On January 15th, The Kickback and Poetic Insight will come together again to ‘Celebrate 3 Years of YP Insight’. I cannot wait to see what this event will bring, as we look back on three years of special moments and rich events – I really hope that people will be forthcoming in sharing their favourite moments.
As this is a special, celebratory event, I have invited a select number of poets and spoken word artists who have graced the Poetic Insight stage over the years to share their first or favourite poem read or performed at Poetic Insight. I’ve chosen them all for a particular reason, which I will reveal on the night.
We’ll be back where it all started, in Project B, from 6.30-9.30pm, so get the date in your diary and come ready to share. You can sign up for free here: bit.ly/celebrating-3-years-of-ypi
As well as The Kickback x Poetic Insight, we’ll be having a party to celebrate this YPI milestone and all that has been achieved over the years. This event is invite only, but be sure to look out for the pictures on social media later in the month.
I hope to see as many of your beautiful faces as possible this month, as I would love to have the opportunity to celebrate with you and give you a big new year hug. I cannot wait to see what else this year has in store for YPI. Bring on 2019.
