On the first of April, we gathered with a small group in Thuis to write poetry on diversity and inclusivity. We drew inspiration from images and associations, we practiced free flowing writing and also the more instrumental ‘Show don’t Tell’ method.
Many young poets that were present also performed their poetry on the 5th of April at the Poetry Night on Diversity and Inclusivity at Impulse, during the One World Week. It was beautiful to see what emotions and thoughts a theme as inclusivity and diversity brings forth. Inclusivity can be about feeling home and having a sense of place. With this poetry evening, OtherWise provided a space for young poets from different cultural backgrounds to express themselves.
