Join Stories & Supper to watch, listen to and read the poems and stories we have been writing in lockdown. We'll share stories about mangoes and brooches, shawls and sweet treats. And we end Refugee Week with the premiere of our new polyvocal poem, Together/Apart, written with award-winning spoken word artist Joelle Taylor.

Stories & Supper is based in East London and brings together refugees, asylum seekers and local residents to share food and stories and challenge negative narratives about migration. Since lockdown we have been holding our weekly workshops online, working with Phosphoros Theatre, storyteller Jumana Moon and poet Joelle Taylor.

All our Refugee Week work will be on our website, Facebook and Instagram. Together/Apart will also be on our YouTube channel.


Copies of the poem will also be available by post for those who can't access the internet. To receive a poem postcard, please email:
