Searching for meaning: an evening of spoken word from prisons
Joelle Taylor, Adam Kammerling, Jasmine Ann Cooray, Joshua Idehen, and Paula Varjack will be reading poems, stories and letters written by prisoners on Thursday 21 January at the Free Word Centre in Farringdon Road, London. The evening of spoken word performances, staged by English PEN and Full Circle Projects, is based on the My Search for Meaning project, run by Full Circle Projects in five UK prisons, in which participants wrote stories, poems, and letters inspired by Viktor E Frankl’s book Man’s Search for Meaning.
Each performer will read work written by prisoners during stage one of the project, and share their thoughts on how they find meaning in their own lives. The event will be recorded and screenings of the show will be held in all five prisons involved in the project. More details
