We Are Here by Ley Speaks

Poet Ley Speaks responds to the theme ‘We Are Here’ in his specially commissioned piece. Ley Speaks is part of Poetic Unity a Brixton based charity founded in 2015 that provides support and services for young people across the UK, who use poetry as a tool to support young people’s mental health, education, personal development, physical health, and community cohesion.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
