The right words go a long way and our two new partners will surely agree.
Anti-Tribalism Movement presents The Verse Club – a project working with young people from the London Somali community and beyond through a series of workshops exploring poetry as a means of creative self-expression. The workshops culminate in poetry gatherings held at the Poetry Café where participants have the opportunity to practice and enhance their performance skills in a public space.
The Tower Hamlets Schools Library Service joins us with Junior SLAMbassadors 2019, running workshops with primary school children to inspire and encourage writing and poetry performance. The workshops are designed to develop emotional literacy as well as speaking, listening and writing skills while providing opportunities for established and emerging Muslim poets to work with school children in Tower Hamlets. This year’s theme is ‘identity’ and pupils are encouraged to think about who they are, their relationship with others, and the world around them.
