The Brunswick Spreads Positivity Through Poetry

09 August, 2019

The Brunswick Shopping Centre, opposite Russell Square tube station, has teamed up with poet James McInerny, to provide its visitors with moments of positivity throughout the summer.

Customers are able to see several new poems every week, by James, displayed on chalk boards within the centre. These thought provoking pieces are created to inspire, amuse and promote a positive mind set within the community.

James has recently taken the UK arts scene by storm with his poems in the public realm. They are currently being showcased at a number of locations across the capital including the London Underground and Stansted airport, so this is a fantastic partnership for The Brunswick.

The Brunswick is working closely with London creatives to create an arts hub in the heart of Bloomsbury and the ‘Positivity Through Poetry’ event follows the introduction of their ‘Brunswick Unplugged’, live music event on Saturday lunchtimes.

David Plumb, Centre Manager at The Brunswick says, “With such a huge focus on mental health in the media at the moment as well as our acknowledgement of the stresses of everyday life, we wanted our visitors to be able to enjoy some small moments of joy throughout the summer. Our partnership with James is just one of many we are working on with creatives in the community, with the aim of creating a vibrant hub, here in the heart of Bloomsbury.”
