Listen and share memories and experiences of living, campaigning, and creating in the local area of Tower Hamlets. You can join in a friendly open discussion at Brick Lane Bookshop about the arts, activism, and publishing in the area. Chat with longstanding community members involved in social and political campaigns and publishing projects as well as newer inhabitants, whether temporary or settled, across cultures and generations.
You can attend 'Publishing is Power: Gathering!' as a standalone activity or as part of the wider 'Publishing is Power' series.
This is the first in a series of three activities that celebrate the arts, activism and publishing in Tower Hamlets. 'Publishing is Power' offers opportunities for people to meet, share experiences, write creatively, and get involved in DIY publishing. It is a chance to reflect on the local histories of community-led politics and multilingual literary cultures, as well as explore what’s going on in the area today. Each activity in the series is open to those aged 18 or over who are interested in the local area and in breaking into poetry and publishing, with all and any kinds of experience.
