Burn 10: words that burn
Vitalina's story © Amnesty International
Part of the Words That Burn poetry education series for secondary and further education students.
In this session, students explore case studies and films show that we all have the power to stand up for human rights through poetry.
The PowerPoint shares examples of three-well known poets taking on Amnesty’s Make a Difference in a Minute challenge – to perform a human rights poem in one minute or less.
You can also select additional film clips from our featured poets pages:
- Jordan Stephens and Inja share their thoughts on the creative process
- Sabrina Mahfouz and Luke Wright make a difference using their power
- Yrsa Daley-Ward and Patrick Cash make a difference for LGBTI rights
- Sarah Crossan, Deanna Rodger and Bethany Rose make a difference for women’s rights
- Amy León and Sarah Crossan make a difference for equality
Please note: One of the recommended film clips 'You Are Not Powerless' contains a swear word.
