Picture of John Agard's face

An evening of curiosity and wonder, spoken word and rhythms to spark your imagination, word play and puns to make you chuckle, poetry to make your heart sing.

Project Curiosity is intergenerational, diverse and multi-faceted. It revels in diversity and difference, in the same way that our communities are plural and varied. It reflects in many ways through the multiple stakeholders and partners, the wide-ranging audiences it will attract.

Step into the world of acclaimed poet and inspiring performer John Agard where he shares some of the observations and influences that have made him the poet that he is. It’s a show that encourages audiences to be inquisitive and to take part. At its heart is the voice, and the writing, of Agard who has inspired over four generations of students and communities across the UK. The author of over 50 books for adults and children, Agard has been recognised through awards including the prestigious Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry and the BookTrust Lifetime Achievement Award (2021).

Event produced by Renaissance One and supported by Wandsworth Arts Fringe through the Wandsworth Grant Fund.
