As part of our Voices for Change project, and following the successful start of our song project, we invite you to join us and write with us about hope!
Whether you’re a budding poet or a master writer, we invite you to share your creativity with us, or join us to learn a new art and meet new friends in a relaxed atmosphere.
We’ll be writing about HOPE – our experiences during lockdown but also our dreams and plans for the future!
We’re running workshops over three Zoom sessions, with the third session being a showcase event to share our work with each other so far.
No experience necessary, open to everyone in Newham, 14 – 114 years old! Join our Zoom Sessions on Tuesday 16 or Thursday 18 February at 3pm, with a chance to share our work together at a showcase event on Friday 19 February at 6pm.
Please register here (selecting ‘writing/ poetry workshops’) and we’ll send your joining instructions over.
