Poetry Workshops with Emilie Lauren Jones - in Central Library

28 November

1:00pm — 3:10pm

Arts & Crafts

Cultural Exchange

September the workshops will be returning to Central Library, Coventry. The next in-person session will take place 1pm - 3:10pm on Sunday 31st October 2021. 

We are doing everything possible to make these sessions Covid secure and to ensure you feel safe after what has been a long break from in-person sessions for many of us.  

There are a few changes to be aware of:
- We will be meeting in the main area of the library as this is better ventilated and will allow us more space to spread out than the meeting room. This section is back-left of the main desk, library staff will direct you if needed and my number is 078 0510 4743 if you get lost! 
- The library is limiting visitor numbers so we won't be surrounded by lots of people.
- You must bring your own refreshments (sorry! We hope the tea, coffee and biscuits will return in due course). Both hot and cold drinks are allowed. 
- We will provide hand-sanitiser but feel free to bring your own and to wear a mask during the session if you would like to. 
- The sessions will finish slightly earlier due to the reduced opening hours of the library.
- Please bring your own pens and paper where possible. 

If you don't feel able to attend in September but would still like to take part in the activities, let me know nearer the time and I will email you a typed copy of the session plan so you can still take part. Obviously, if restrictions change Colin and I will need to reconsider this plan and will let you know.

If you have any questions then please ask. It will be great to see you all again. 

 Previous workshops can be found at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrJ4fqe2XOPJo0R8QjaEjfA

Meet new people with an interest in poetry, share your work and learn new techniques for writing your own poems. No previous poetry experience is necessary!

Virtual Singing For The Brain

1 December

11:00am — 1:00pm

Music

Every Wednesday, from 11am till 1pm, Singing for the Brain meet up on zoom. This is an opportunity to sing (and hear) vintage Bollywood and Lollywood songs, ghazals, etc. It’s a chance to see old friends and make new ones, and to keep one’s brain stimulated by remembering favourite songs from the past. The group aims to alleviate loneliness for the over 50s, enhance their memories and inform each other of rapid changes of the current Pandemic situation. Discussions are held at the end of the session.  We also tackle fake news against the vaccinations etc. We share out  materials, videos and information from the Community Resilience Team, providing the latest advice on staying safe.  The group has been a lifeline for elderly people, and it continues to meet online till the end of 2021. Then we shall assess the situation accordingly.  We’d love to welcome some new members with interest in singing. 
Please contact Tahera Fazal or Jeetuybhai Shah for more information about how to join:   Tahera Fazal (Mob: 07984330030, email: [email protected]
