The Lion & the Unicorn at Southbank Centre

The Lion & The Unicorn was part of the Southbank Centre's 60 year anniversary Festival of Britain celebrations in partnership with English PEN and the Refugee Council.

I ran poetry workshops with young refugees, many of whom spoke only a little English, to help them tell their stories. Here participants are making poetry kites.

The project culminated in a text and sound installation featuring particpants’ poetry outside the Royal Festival Hall and a reading in the Clore Ballroom.
