A Raised Fist & A Helping Hand

Scott Steele – WSO Interviews #4

“I’ve always had a passion for the arts. It brings people together and helps us to overcome hardships”

Scott Steele

What event are you involved in?

I am part of the Station pub ‘we shall overcome’ event in Ashton-under-Lyne. I will be performing on Saturday 3rd October as a spoken word artist.

Tell us something interesting about yourself

I am a poet and author of short stories. My work is quite dark and disturbing at times as it tackles issues such as depression and mental illness. I have started doing spoken word gigs for the past couple of months now. Everyone has been very supportive and helpful. I owe the sucess of my work to Pauline Town who runs the Station pub and Tom Skidmore, drummer of Kain

What made you want to get involved?

I have always had a passion for the arts especially performance art. I believe it brings people within our local community together and helps us to overcome hardships we may face.

What inspires you or makes you hopeful?

The fact that so many performers have banded together to show Support and seeing all the diffrent acts performing collectively to bring are community together to take a stand.

What are you most looking forward to about October 2-4?

Everyone coming together to show love and support for local arts and talent in the area.
