Donavan has been writing poetry seriously for the past 15 years as a tool for self – expression and to tackle social problems via the sports participation and cultural equality (SPACE) project in Huddersfield. As D.BO. He has worked the underground circuit in ragga sound systems, jungle / drum and bass, performing and hosting events from local to international venues. He has had a great amount of exposure and success in this field, which still continues today.
He is currently working with young people on Rap poetry educational projects. Themes include respect of self and others and an insight to cultural diversity around the world we all share. Dealing with all types of difficult issues promoting ‘Respect all people’ he engages the youngsters giving them the forum to share and discuss views, helping them capture and express their thoughts an imagination in a safe environment all done in a fun way.
Donavan has visited many schools throughout the UK and Overseas.
