Hidden Gems Poetry Evening

A MESSAGE from the organisers of Hidden Gems

TO those of you who have been involved in the Hidden Gems project so far: Thank you! We’ve had a fantastic response and engagement with our workshops, festival, gig and community conversations events. Loads of local people have been able to get involved in a variety of art forms, conversations about the local area and barriers to community and creative life. We’re learning so much about people’s perceptions of the local area and things they’d like to get involved with in the future.

To those of you for whom we haven’t been able to set up a workshop, they would like to invite you to another FREE workshop this Wednesday, 11th April from 7-9pm at Creative Blast Studios, Thameside Theatre Complex.

For this workshop, they have teamed up with Metro- & Huffington Post-feature Spoken Word Artist John Akinde, who will be helping us to create a poem about Thurrock, and LCM Senior Lecturer Marcia Carr who will be teaching you how to perform the poem – which will be recorded in a studio at a later date.

It’s FREE and anyone over 16 is welcome.

Please email to confirm your place.
