Can poetry be an act of resistance?
Kamil Mahmood‘s poetry and art explores activism, the Muslim/Pakistani diaspora, politics and the narratives of the overlooked and unheard. He champions words as tools for change. Kamil talks about his radical work and reads from his new collection from Verve Press.
Belinda Rimmer writes poems of ‘personal protest’. Her first collection Touching Sharks in Monaco (Indigo Dreams) deals with memory and the distortion of memory – things remembered, things imagined. It addresses loss and trauma in family histories, the transience of nature, and ecological concerns.
The event includes readings of classic protest poems and literature of activism by writers including Adrienne Rich, William Blake and James Baldwin plus an open mic – come and read your protest poems!

Concessions apply only to minors (under 18s), full-time students under the age of 25 and those officially registered as disabled or unemployed.
