Spoken Word Workshops

Spoken Word In The Community Hubs (S.W.I.T.C.H) Project will be running a series of workshops in February and March 2020. Dates to be announced.

In collaboration with Battersea Arts Centre, poet Jemilea Wisdom-Baako of Writerz and Scribez and artist Kay Rufai, S.W.I.T.C.H. is a project aimed at reaching audiences that feel excluded from conventional arts organisations, exploring how to increase arts participation. It involves removing barriers by placing the art in community hubs such as barbershops, youth provisions, salons and restaurants – going to people rather than expecting them to come to us.

Past Events

The workshops took place on Thursday 28th November 2019, at the Portico Gallery in West Norwood, from 2pm-4pm and another at 5pm-7pm.

In summer 2019 SELPh ran a course of six workshops, with weekly themes relating to physical health, identity, community, dreams, and mental health generally. This event exhibited photos produced by the group members, who each bring their own unique perspective to these facets of mental health. It was accompanied by a collection of poems and photos from our partner project Spoken Word in the Community Hubs (S.W.I.T.C.H), which explores how to increase arts participation.
