When so much of the corporate media is pushing fear and division we need projects like this that promote understanding and inclusion that have a positive lasting impact on society.

When I was a child I thought poetry was for other people. It took me years to find and access the beauty of it, the complexity, the understanding, and how it can illuminate so simply. I would like to help children like the child I was find this form of writing sooner. And married with graphics it becomes even more powerful.

Poetry is the only medium that speaks direct to mind, heart and soul all at once, and learning with mind, heart and soul together is what kids do.

Hi, this sounds like a great project - I am especially interested in the experiences of LGBTQ people who try and get asylum in the UK - their stories are often invisible. Let me know if I can be of help as I am a community theatre practitioner. x Jane
