Chris Jam

Policy Press

This chapter comprises an original poetic commission by Chris Jam reflecting on creativity and community in the Balsall Heath neighbourhood of Birmingham, UK. The poem was the key output from a community film making project in the neighbourhood, led by the author, exploring residents’ feelings about Balsall Heath, its many textures and rhythms. The poem is the author’s personal response to the raw material gathered in the film-making process, giving a unique artistic response to an area that has a long history of people working together to create a better community.

Keywords:   Poetry, Artistic approaches to place, Community engagement, Diversity
