Part of the Kensington & Chelsea Festival, 18 Shows at the Chelsea Theatre

Recitations with live music from the ‘Poetry 4 Grenfell Voices from Da Grove & Latimer’ book by young and old local community members the and bereaved

Rollerskate Dancers welcoming you outside the Theatre from 6:45pm


The “Poetry 4 Grenfell – Voices from da Grove and Latimer” multi-lingual book is a tribute to all affected by the fire and a result of the on-going workshops that Kamitan Arts had been running as an immediate response to the tragedy. It includes the voices of local residents, the bereaved, 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. 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 Summer 2017 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 β€˜Poetry 4 Grenfell’ Golden Trellick Heart award-winning β€˜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 β€˜Ja’bbour.
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 come to life; immortalising our memories through the written and oral testimonies, for indeed these dear souls will never be forgotten…
