I extend an invitation to you to be part of the joys of 575 Wandsworth Road and discover the creative legacy of Khadambi Asalache, by volunteering or joining us for one of our events – from writing and poetry to papercutting and collage, there are so many ways to get involved:
In a Strange Place free evening poetry workshops for young people
In a Strange Place is a series of free evening poetry workshops for young people (aged 18-25) designed and hosted by myself, Hilaire McLiesh and Zahra Hamdulay. Exploring themes of belonging, language and new perspectives, develop a new understanding of your own creativity in an inspiring setting. Workshops take place on Monday 11, Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 September (18.00 – 21.00) and include free pizza, a tour of the property, tailored exercises, and a notebook and pen to continue on your artistic journey. Places are limited so make sure you sign up through the National Trust page.
