About this Event

Poetry Recital

In this creative performance, social worker and published author Aimee shares several poems she’s written inspired by her experiences in the profession.


Channelling experiences into creative forms can be a positive way of reflecting on the social work profession.

In this creative performance, Aimee Williams shares a few poems that she’s written as a social worker inspired by working across multiple services, alongside responses to key moments of 2020 including the death of George Floyd and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Reflections on a pandemic by Wiltshire social care staff and children

Experience art and poetry by social workers and children in Wiltshire on the theme of the pandemic.


This session will showcase poems and art from a book called ‘Reflections on a Pandemic’, which was collated by social workers and children in Wiltshire.

The project came out of an idea to keep people connected and keep up morale during lockdown.

The book features entries from a children’s art and poetry competition launched by the Principal Social Worker. Staff have added their reflections drawing upon their social work standards, principles and values. The book will be shown on a computer loop system which changes pages slowly and automatically over the 15 minutes.

It will appeal to children, adults, social workers and students who may be interested in a collection of responses to the pandemic.
