Founded in 2019, Off the Chest is a thriving, inclusive spoken word and poetry open mic night, celebrating original voices and poetry that makes a statement. With 10 spots on the open mic up for grabs, they aim to give a platform to poets of diverse backgrounds and ages, from across London and beyond. On top of this, expect feature performances from two acclaimed poets, at the top of their game.
Hosted by Ella Dorman-Gajic and Iftikhar Latif, Off the Chest champions community. This night was originally on at the HiLand Cafe in Mile End, to multiple sell-out audiences. For their celebrated open mic segment, they welcome original poetry of different themes, subject-matters and styles, from the intimate to the experimental.
