We are excited to announce a brand new program at ATM called “Writers Realm”. This is a programme for Poetry and performance. Poetry is an art form that resonates with Somalis.

The program will be initiated by Farah Gabdon who has extensive experience and knowledge in creative writing, poetry and performance. ‘Writer’s Realm” is our new Poetry Club, come & learn the flow of words. If you would like to participate please email at farahg@theatm.org

Topic:  Love in my language: exploring the different meanings and shapes of love. Our own perceptions and beliefs about ‘love’.

Poetry Focus: Performance: Using storytelling and humour to express our ideas of love and romance. Considering the impact of rhythm when writing movement/tempo and the effect of change of rhythm/rhyme/tone on meaning.
