Black Quill Project

"Not all words need a face"

Black Quill is a collaborative poem created by local creative organisation Building Bridges With Words in partnership with Haringey Shed and St. Thomas More Catholic School

Through a series of creative writing workshops led by Building Bridges With Words founder, Kieron Rennie, a local Performance Poet, groups of young people from Haringey developed their own individual poems, which he later curated in the Black Quill piece.

Watch as the young people perform their section of the poem, exploring the rich tapestry of Black British culture.
