Our sell-out poetry event returned for another year!

Thanks to everyone who joined us for a wonderful evening of poetry and spoken word hosted by T.S Eliot Prize-winning poet and author, Joelle Taylor, with contributions from a range of artists and writers engaged with Koestler Arts, including former entrants.

The evening included readings of poems published in Koestler Voices: New Poetry from Prisons Vol.4 and a selection of other written work from this year’s Koestler awards.

This event was part of the programme for IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, our 2023 annual UK exhibition of fine art, craft, music, writing and spoken word, curated by Joelle Taylor, at Southbank Centre.

Age recommendation: 18+ (May contain content some people might find upsetting)
