bridges or walls?

   zoom event

7pm, tuesday 8th december

Our second anthology, Bridges or Walls? deals with issues around refugees and migration because of conflict.

During the covid pandemic nobody's going anywhere, so refugees are stuck in the filthy, makeshift camps that the international community thinks are good enough for the victims of war.

Still they try to cross the Channel into Britain, still they're driven out of their homes in the Yemen and in Armenia.

Join us for an evening of top class poetry.

We're welcoming a special guest - Alexis Krikorian, co-founder of Armenian campaigning charity, Hyestart, who will be joining us from Geneva to talk about the situation in Nagorno- Karabakh.
