Monday 5th June 2017, YOUYOU Mentoring teams up with the Award-winning film composer Sacha Puttnam to curate poems inspired by the oceans and seas and our relationship with it.

OCEANS will include a series of video poems written and performed by poets who have benefited from the YOUYOU Mentoring initiative.

The project will give each poet the opportunity to turn their artistry of words, juxtaposed with Puttnam haunting music with abstract visuals.

Other collaborators involved in the project include the Award-winning photographer Jem Cresswell known for the GIANTS series of underwater photographers of the great whales.

OCEANS will be released in July 2017.
