From poems to performances, find out what happened when the Youth Collective took over Cutty Sark...
On 16 July 2021 the Royal Museums Greenwich Youth Collective produced an evening takeover on Cutty Sark. This year's collective known as 'Cutty Crew' consisted of: Joshlyn Evans, Frederick Fynn-Famodun, Rachel Galbraith, Millie Hamilton, Sarah Hocine, Daniel Kamere, Olaitan Komolafe, Nasir Muhammad, Jade Ngoc, Tunmike Onibuje and Peter Wareing.
Spill the Tea was a takeover that allowed people to come together to shed light on the themes of diversity, equality, unity, audacity, identity and community. The crew wanted to create a space where people could talk freely and express their views and opinions with confidence. Subverting the traditional Tea Party, the evening was filled with artists, performances, poets, games and food.
The Cutty Crew met weekly for a period of 10 weeks to co-produce the evening take-over. They selected local young performers to be part of the evening, which included Carina Torres, Dan Whitlam, Emireallyhere, Isy Miller de Vega, James Gava, Karenchi, Ku-Ro, Molotov and The Unknown.
Between acts the Cutty Crew designed table games and conversation starters as well as a quiz and evening meal.
