jasmine writing a poem

On 1st Feburary 2023, Local Cultural Education Partnerships in the West Midlands came together in Birmingham, to celebrate their work and successes since 2015, and to discuss what lies ahead.

We invited Jasmine Gardosi, Birmingham’s Poet Laureate, to join us. Jasmine spent the day listening to the stories being told, and the work being shared by the Cultural Education Partnerships, and created a poem from what she had heard and seen.
