Summer Together! 2016

Our Summer Together! 2016 programme has now ended but check back soon for more photographs, poems and videos.

Our Carnival Arts programme with Emergency Exit Arts in July  was a big success with the support of the Big Lottery. Click here to read the Pop-Up Poetry Club’s Carnival poems. Thanks to the generous support of Arts Council England, Together! 2012 CIC was then in residency from 1-31 August 2016 at the Grassroots Centre, Memorial Park, Memorial Avenue, West Ham, London E15 3BD. We then organised a showcase tent at the Liberty Festival on 3 September, National Paralympic Day, in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with the additional support of London Legacy Development Corporation.
