Spoken word artist Imtiaz Dharker performs her poem This Tide Of Humber in an exclusive vlog for HuffPost UK which attempts to 'capture the the pull of a city where dislocation and separation mix with images of water and sky to create a unique sense of place'.
Imtiaz will be performing this poem during the Contains Strong Language event on Saturday 30 September at Hull College, which will also be broadcast on BBC Radio 4.
Contains Strong Language is a brand new national poetry and spoken word festival, taking place in Hull, UK City of Culture from National Poetry Day, 28 September - 1 October. Nearly 70 events will be held in the city, alongside extensive TV and Radio coverage on the BBC. Most of the tickets are free, and available to book on Hull 2017's website.
