Join us for an evening of music, workshops, and exploration programmed by Whitechapel Gallery’s youth collective Duchamp & Sons.

Are you a writer, poet, or a creative with something to say? We’re looking for young people to share and perform short pieces of writing as part of Duchamp & Sons’ upcoming Escape the Slick: Youth Takeover at Whitechapel Gallery.
We’re looking for 1-5 minute long pieces which respond to any of the below prompts…
These prompts were all a key part of conversations between Duchamp & Sons members and the artist Gaby Sahhar when they collaboratively curated the Escape the Slick exhibition, which this takeover evening celebrates and is inspired by.
We’ll be selecting our favourite submissions, and if yours is chosen we’ll be inviting you to perform yours on the takeover night in the Escape the Slick exhibition space.
Submit your piece by Monday 27 March and we’ll be in touch!
