Community Gallery: Poetry In Wood

Poetry in Wood is a person-centred creative environment based in the Montefiore Centre in Whitechapel that engages people with learning disabilities in a way that values each and everyone’s abilities, promoting independence and empowerment through training and employment. In this supportive atmosphere, people are able to contribute and participate in the wider community. Over the years everything from small gifts sold in local markets to site-specific sculptural installations commissioned by businesses have been produced and recent projects have seen students design and make inlaid boxes, working ukuleles, puppets, animations and film scenery.www.poetryinwood.org.uk
