Poetic Unity- A ‘Safe Space’ Poetry Hour at Shameless! Festival
Poetic Unity presents ‘Safe Space’, an evening of poetry and spoken word confronting attitudes towards sexual violence and advocating for a safer world for women and girls. The event will feature four amazing poets; rising musician from Myanmar Phe Phe; spoken word artist and facilitator Jayda David; actress, writer and spoken word artist Demii Walker and West London poet Reya Saint.
Poetic Unity is a Brixton based charity that provides support and services for young people across the UK. Its vision is to give young people a voice and to empower them to reach their highest potential. They use poetry as a tool to support young people’s mental health, education, personal development, physical health, and community cohesion.
This event is held as part of the inaugural Shameless! Festival of Activism against Sexual Violence. This event at the festival is not ticketed and everyone is welcome. Produced by SHaME and WOW – Women of the World, this much needed festival will revolutionise conversations around sexual violence; burst open inherited ideas of shame; and empower everyone to create a collective, transformative shift within society to say enough is enough, sexual violence must end.
