Poetry 4 Grenfell

Presented by Kamitan Arts
Sold out

Hear prolific voices from the heart of our community reciting, singing and rapping from the “Poetry 4 Grenfell – Voices from da Grove and Latimer” book and film.

The Poetry4Grenfell project manifested as an immediate response to help artistically deal with the emotional aftermath of the Grenfell fire in Jun 2017.

Since the fire, Kamitan Arts has been offering Rap-Poetry workshops to those affected, to help them address their emotions and begin to heal.

The workshops inspired the bi-lingual book and short film, directed by Emmanuelle Marcel ‘Ja’bbour, featuring local people’s artistic testimonies (Golden Heart Trellick Award Winner, Best Art Film at Portobello Film Festival 2017)

Guest artists on the night include

Charlotte Kelly (Soul II Soul), Alexander D Great, Dr Lez Lyric Henry, EmpresS *1, Pan Diva, Lee Mya,  Potent Whisperer, Peaky, Jaqi Loye-Browne, Aamasade, the KPA Dance Crew and more.

The Hyde Park Rollerskate Groovers will be pre-show at the Bush Theatre on the Terrace from 7pm.

You can help publish their book in time for the One Year On show, by donating to Poetry4Grenfell. Any amount will help them give copies to Grenfell survivors and offer free projects in the community.

This is a past event

the lonely creative. by Robyn London

I have spent my life immersed in creativity.  As a guide, passion or perhaps what others may interpret as an unrealistic dream.  It is embedded within my earliest memories. It has nurtured my soul. There is beauty in the moments of creativity that healed parts of me, that I didn’t realise were broken. Memories of…
