Poetry School is proud to be part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio of Arts Organisations from 2018-22. Our annual grant is £140,409. We would like to acknowledge our partnership with British Land who have enabled the School’s move to Canada Water. We look forward to delivering projects within the Southwark community and working with British Land to embed poetry in the borough. The Paul Hamlyn Foundation funded Poetry School for a two-year project that sought to enlarge the franchise for poetry reading and writing, with an emphasis on digital delivery and socially networked ways of developing poetic skills. This project resulted in the CAMPUS network and its free programme of engagement. We are hugely grateful to the support that Paul Hamlyn have given the organisation in this venture. We would like to thank the generosity and support of the Kamini and Vindi Banga Family Trust.
We would also like to thank the following generous trusts and individuals who fund our work: The Dovehouse Trust, Iain and Mariko Drayton and family, Hugh Rayment-Pickard, Daphne Astor, Andrew Hewish, Raymond Antrobus, Dido Goldsmith, Alexander Goldsmith.
