Theresa Lola is Young People’s Laureate for London, and is planning a residency at the Museum of the Mind during March 2020. Theresa will be working with local young women poets, recruited by Spread the Word.

Theresa has described her plan for the workshops:

In the workshops we will be using archival artworks, contemporary artworks and poetry to facilitate conversations on women and mental health. From body image to anxiety disorders, and the language of illness used to label women. We will be writing poems and elevating our voices to create poetry notice boards; demanding our voices and stories are noticed.

The event on 28 March will provide the opportunity for participants of the residency to present the culmination of their work with Theresa.
