‘Flight of Hope’ is Brent’s borough wide spoken word installation for Refugee Week 2012.

Spoken word artist Simon Mole will run poetry/rap/creative writing workshops with small groups of selected pupils at a number of primary and secondary schools in the borough, leading to original spoken word pieces inspired by the theme ‘flight of hope’ – our take on Refugee Week’s theme this year – ‘Spirit’.

The young people involved will also make kites, containing one line of their own poetry, and the project will culminate with participants from all schools coming together at The Tricycle Theatre to share their spoken word pieces with each other, and create the ‘flight of hope’ installation on stage with their kites. The date for this is event is Thursday June 21st.

The Refugee week slogan is ‘different pasts, shared future’ and by bringing together pupils from all the schools, this event will be a great way to support ‘encounters’ and collaboration between different communities on a local level.
