With generous support from MIRVAC and Landcom, in February and March 2018, poet and hip hop artist SOLO (Nick Bryant Smith) and poet and performer Gabrielle Jones delivered six workshops for the students at Green Square School. The workshops focus on unlocking poetic ways of seeing, writing and responding through music and performance.
