All the poetry workshops that are part of the GROUNDation Poetry Project will culminate in our end-of-project performance event GROUNDation II: Poetry, Power, People, where the participants from inside the prison and the outside in the local community will meet for the first time in a creative exchange, sharing the poetry they have created and engaging in challenging discussions.
