About the service

Room to Rant is a space for young men to rap and get stuff off their chest.

The rap and spoken word initiative that tackles men’s mental health is in action across Brighton, Worthing, Crawley, Eastbourne and online.

The rap sessions are led by highly experienced and accomplished rappers who are well respected in the Brighton hip-hop and music scene. Members are encouraged to be themselves; talking and exploring struggles and life experiences through spoken word, rap and hip hop.

No prior rapping experience is needed at these relaxed, free-to-attend, weekly drop-ins, where young men build on lyric-writing and improvisation skills. The groups can still meet despite Covid-19 and there is one online group for those who can’t meet in person. Anyone who identifies as male or non-binary aged 16-25 is welcome to attend Room To Rant.
