RBKC Community members between the ages of 10 and 76 came together for 6 weeks so far @ The Tea Gardens, LWRA to reflect on happy memories and share this expression through Poetry with Kamitan Arts May – July 2022

This is what took their interest in our workshop:

– To get my spirit lifted up

– I like to do new things, like poetry

– To help me with creative writing

– The location- in the Tea Garden

– To do something productive with my free time

– Creative release

– Curiosity to learn something new

– Giving more time to myself and developing my poetry, I loved the online VAP sessions have known Princess Emmanuelle for a long time professionally, and like her approach. I am open to how the workshop flows and see what inspires me!
