Caleb Femi is a poet, filmmaker, and the current Young People’s Laureate for London and we are so excited to have him to Brainchild for the first time this year.
As a poet, Caleb’s commissions include the Tate Mordern, The Royal Society for Literature, Lit Festival and the Guardian. Caleb has graced major stages such as the Roundhouse, Barbican, British Library, Royal Festival Hall. He has also opened up for Lianne La Havas and has performed at many festivals including Latitude, Ed Fringe, Boomtown, Lovebox and Greenbelt to name a few. Caleb has also won the Roundhouse Poetry Slam and Genesis Poetry Slam and is currently working on a debut pamphlet.
As a filmmaker, Caleb has released two documentaries ‘What Did Love Taste Like In The 70s?’ and ‘Heartbreak & Grime’, to good international reception, which has led him to give talks and panel discussions on the topic of Grime music, Roadman culture and masculinity.
