Poetry In Motion
Poetry writing workshops for 14-18 year old young people primarily, but not exclusively, from Bangladeshi communities. You will engage with poetry by diverse artists. You will use the learning and experiences to craft poetry.
Poetry-film making sessions where youth create SILENT films that visually represents their poems. Some sessions will be on a Floating Classroom, a barge that sails through London, allowing participants to explore nature, the city, community and identity and write about those themes.
