About this Event
Join us in December for a captivating exploration of the 'Welcome to Britain' poetry anthology, a powerful collection that challenges the narratives surrounding Britain's history and identity. Published by CivicLeicester earlier this year in spring, this anthology brings together voices that contest and subvert the pervasive myths and fictions associated with Britain.
Date & Time: Saturday, December 16, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm
Location: Pervasive Media Studio, Bristol
- Poetry Reading: Immerse yourself in the evocative verses of some of the established and aspiring writers who have contributed to 'Welcome to Britain: An Anthology of Poems and Short Fiction'. These voices weave together a tapestry of narratives, shedding light on the diverse experiences that often go unheard.
- Discussion: Engage in a thought-provoking discussion around the anthology's central theme. Explore the importance of challenging prevailing narratives, fostering understanding, and acknowledging the multifaceted stories that shape our collective history.
- Poetry Writing Workshop (TBC): Delve into the creative process with a poetry and short story writing workshop. Led by experienced facilitators, this session aims to inspire participants to find their voices and contribute to the ongoing dialogue surrounding migration, identity, human rights, social justice and belonging.
Venue: Pervasive Media Studios, located in the vibrant city of Bristol, provides a dynamic backdrop for this exploration of literature, identity, and social justice.
This event is organised by Regularise, a grassroots collective and campaign group dedicated to improving the quality of life of undocumented migrants in the UK. By advocating for basic rights and a safer, more equitable path to settlement and citizenship, Regularise strives to create positive change for many who call the UK home but are forced to live on the margins of inclusions.
