The "Poetry 4 Grenfell - Voices from da Grove & Latimer"

...book is a tribute to all affected by the fire and a result of the year-long workshops that Kamitan Arts had been running as an immediate response to the tragedy. Princess Emmanuelle, lifelong resident of Ladbroke Grove, founder of Kamitan Arts CIC, international bi-lingual Rap-Poetess and cross-disciplinary arts facilitator that uses the Performing Arts to share and explore topics of injustice and cultural identity to bring about social change, put a call out at the end of June for contributions to this heart-felt multilingual compilation. The collection of poems for the book and the initial workshops in June 2017, was what inspired the filming of the ‘Poetry 4 Grenfell’ Golden Trellick Heart award-winning ‘Best Art Film’ (Portobello Film Festival 2017) that our young Igor Barcelos had filmed, with much help from the community to edit, and directed by Emmanuelle Marcel ‘Ja’bbour.

The "Poetry 4 Grenfell" multi-lingual book includes the voices of local residents, the bereaved, the survivors and the empathetic wider community, from the ages of 3 – 77. It has been a creative means to amplify the voices and messages of our traumatised community that has usually been manipulated or misrepresented by the media. The Second Edition more Family Friendly version is now available!

Come in take a look into our World, feel, watch and listen to the legacy that has been created by and for our 'come-unity'. Allow yourself to draw upon the "Poetry 4 Grenfell" book for inspiration as you witness the inscribed written words and images; immortalising our memories through the written and oral testimonies, for indeed these dear souls will never be forgotten...

We have just released our second edition, which is more family friendly and is a larger 220 paged full colour edition! All revenue after printing and publishing costs are deducted goes towards printing more copies, giving free copies to Grenfell survivors and their immediate families, and sustaining free creative projects in our community post-Grenfell!
