Out of Silence Exhibition

Croydon Clocktower Atrium, 9 Katharine Street
Croydon, CR0 1NX United Kingdom

Back to What's On

A multi-generational poetry project telling the untold stories of Croydon’s community, produced by Croydon’s first Poet Laureate Shaniqua Benjamin.

From October 2023 to May 2024, Shaniqua and five other local poets ran workshops in some of Croydon’s schools, youth organisations and elder’s groups to uncover what is important to different generations.

Shaniqua developed Out of Silence to empower and lift up voices that are not often heard, shining a light on Croydon’s corners and communities. Groups expressed their truth, their passions and what matters in the world around them.

Extracts from each poem written have been made into posters, co-designed by local young people, showcasing visual talent as well as literary.
