The Northern Beat Poets Association
The Northern Beat Poets Association is a collaboration between Jimmy Andrex & Martin Christie.
They have been taking the NBPA Happening round the arts festivals of the North, culminating in the Greater Manchester Fringe and were recently nominated in the top 5 Spoken Word shows at the Greater Manchester Fringe.
The aim of the Northern Beat Poets Association is:
- To create stories and messages that have meaning and depth
- To promote liberalism, equality and humanitarian thinking through our approach
- To oppose elitism, cliques and snobbery of all forms, particularly in the poetry scene
- To mix poetry, spoken word and sung spoken word with electronic music*
- To defend the right to freedom of expression and originality
- To promote engagement in poetry, literature and music
- To push the boundaries of what is possible in our chosen art form
- To work outside of socio-cultural competition and compulsive fame seeking
- To actively disengage with British cynicism and negativity
- To have fun
