Housing Association ‘SOHA’ have launched a major project to involve SOHA residents, their neighbours, staff and more.

The project is for anyone living in a town where there are SOHA homes, which includes Wallingford. You do not have to be a SOHA resident.

“Playing with Words” is a series of professionally led free writing workshops to encourage creativity on the theme of “What community means” through playful, creative approaches to words and music.

Open to all ages and abilities and run in a safe, friendly environment by a Professional word artist, events will take place until Spring next year. Poetry, song, story writing, rap…. whatever you are into. Shakespeare to Stormzy, this is for you!

Six months of in-person and online sessions with Kevin Campbell of The KCD Collective will culminate in a performance in July 2022 at Didcot’s Cornerstone Arts Centre to celebrate Soha’s 25th anniversary. With your permission your work can be shared at Cornerstone Art Centre in Didcot through and exhibition and live performance.

The invitation to get involved with ‘Playing with Words’ is offered in 8 languages to inspire as many people from all cultures and backgrounds as possible to participate.

Workshops are FREE but pre-booking is requested to avoid disappointment.
