Join us in The Humble Gallery to watch a projection of Newham Word Festival word artist Sana Amos followed by a hands-on printmaking workshop inspired by her ‘Blackout Poetry’.
Sana employs a creative method called ‘erasure’ or ‘blackout poetry’. Sana uses pre-existing media, anything from books, newspapers and leaflets, turning them into new stories adding visual aspect of geometric designs as well as colour and drawings.
Sabba, uses themes such as 'belonging', 'memory' and 'identity' in hopes to bring peace to a tormented narrative. As part of Newham Word Festival she will be reading some of her work at The Humble Gallery against a backdrop of visuals that will bring a physical sense to her work, which is usually read privately.
