Witness this cross-disciplinary Kensington-based non-profit performing arts and heritage organisation that are celebrating 6 years as a C.I.C and have been nurturing community arts and culture for two decades in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea! 

The ‘Poetry On The Steps’ pilot has made its return this year presented by Kamitan Arts with kind support from OHP to raise awareness of what Kamitan Arts are passionately advocating for:  

To increase recognition, funding, and support for diverse local multi-cultural poets, artists, and grassroots performing arts organisations in RBKC. Prioritising their inclusion within the programming of festivals within the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Kamitan Arts are the official Poetry partners for the ‘Poetry Corner’ within Kensington and Chelsea Art Week (KCAW), this event will act as one of their ‘Poetry Circles’.

This poetry recitation piloted last year and has returned this year to endorse Kamitan Arts’ concept, an annual open-air live acoustic poetry series that highlights local professional poetry artists, and will take place on the steps of Opera Holland Park on Sat 13th July 12pm Hosted by bi-lingual international Rap-Poetess, Creative Helaing Facilitator, Choreographer and Artistic Director of Kamitan Arts, Princess Emmanuelle.

This event is a must-attend for arts, culture, and poetry enthusiasts, as well as anyone passionate about utilising the arts, more specifically the Spoken Word, as a powerful tool for driving social change. Don’t miss this free opportunity to engage with like-minded individuals, and explore the transformative potential of the arts in shaping our society for the better!
