About this Event

Due to the popularity of this workshop, we have scheduled a repeat details here - Every Poem Breaks a Silence - Repeat event due to demand

A series of 3 workshops with Charmaine Pollard and Victoria Field

Tuesday 14th, Wednesday 15th, Thursday 16th July, 8pm-9.30pm BST on Zoom

We will use poetry and expressive writing to explore the experience and impact of racism on all of us. Charmaine and Victoria will create a non-judgmental space where we can listen and learn from each other and where voices that may have been silenced can be heard.

After the killing of George Floyd, we were moved to start a more open conversation about racism in all its forms. We have taken our title from poet and activist, Adrienne Rich.

Charmaine Pollard is a Black British woman of Jamaican parents, living in London, UK, conscious of her struggles and assumptions placed on her because of her colour. She is a Counsellor and Certified Poetry Therapist and works with diverse communities. She is on the board of Lapidus International, an expressive arts company that believes in the power of words. Her website is www.charmainepollardcounselling.co.uk

Victoria Field is a white British woman, living in Canterbury, UK, aware of her privilege and freedoms. During the BLM demonstrations, she reached out to Charmaine as a friend and colleague, wanting to know how she could best respond, even though asking that question could be an imposition. She is a Mentor-Supervisor with the International Federation for Biblio-Poetry Therapy and a Course Director with the Professional Writing Academy. Her website is www.thepoetrypractice.co.uk
