02nd May - 13th June 2022
Translating Lewisham Workshops
Poetry Translation Centre
From April-June 2022, Helen Bowell will be co-facilitating a series of workshops titled ‘Translating Lewisham’ – exploring some of the languages spoken in Lewisham, as part of Lewisham Borough of Culture 2022.
The sessions will look at poems in Arabic, Bengali, French, Italian, Portuguese, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese under the guidance of expert translators. No prior knowledge of the languages being translated is needed – each week participants will work together to open up a poem in its original language and reassemble it in English.
