Activity: Public engagement and outreach › Public lecture/debate/seminar
In response to rising Islamophobia and anti-Semitism across the UK, Exiled Writers Ink brought together a diverse range of Muslim and Jewish writers currently living in Britain. Together with Muslim poet Shamim Azad, I led a series of workshops, enabling writers of different faiths and ethnicities to explore their personal narratives and literary traditions to create poetic responses.
After these London workshops, we will take our project on the road to expand the conversation. These events with local communities will include poetry, discussion and workshops on the nuances of writing poetry as an enquiry into transnational cultural identities. We are in Cobersation with the Arts Council and Queen Mary's College, University of London to support and expand this series.
