To celebrate the third edition of KCAW and in order to give greater visibility to locally based creative talent, KCAW20 launched an Open Call to writers and spoken word artists to submit poems to be displayed in the windows of participating venues throughout the borough.
Find Harriet Knock's poem, Bright, on the windows of Howard Walwyn on Kensington Church St.
The poem is from Harriet Knock's debut mental health poetry collection, Emerging From the Storm, due to be released on 10 October 2020, World Mental Health Day.
"Everyone and anyone can be affected by mental health issues, at any time. It’s my passion to raise awareness and encourage people to talk more openly about mental health problems!
What better way to spark conversation and motivate people to open up than through art?
I want to empower people to share their truths when it comes to mental health. So many areas are still left in the dark and not talked about, so my work aims to shine a light on this."
– Harriet Knock
