A space for expression and healing run by artists of colour. Poetry and Shaah is an open mic night sharing stories, poems, conversation and laughter in a warm and safe space for many. Started in 6th August 2016 in the heart of White City Community Centre. Poetry and Shaah has since seen events at Bishop Creighton House, Gallery Cafe, Poetry Cafe and Brixton Pound Cafe.
Outside of the open mic circuit, Poetry and Shaah also aims to work with young people and the disenfranchised through curating workshops to develop their craft in poetry, poetry nights with specialised themes and safe spaces where they can feel safe to express themselves and communicate with like-minded individuals in order for healing and growth to come through.
