We work on creative writing, screenplays, blogs, short stories and acting sessions. POET is a place that accepts everyone and if you ever feel like you are alone or just a place to hang out then this is the place for you! Just know there is power within you! You have worth! You matter! This is the place that accepts you when you don't accept yourself! We have debates, to open mic events, to movie nights, to singing, dance, writing, language classes! The time for us to unite is now! You don't have to embark on this journey alone!
There will be free food and drinks as well.

When I look around the world, my heart is generally broken. My heart weeps, because I know we are better than this. I know that we are more than this. It breaks my heart so much potential splattered upon the walls. It breaks my heart to see so many talents uncultivated. A world that has so much to offer, but yet chooses to do the very thing that can break a nation. We have exchanged our birthrights for highs, thighs and lies. How I look down and weep. I know we can aspire to do better. I know there is greatness within you. I see greatness in you. I see generations unite at the sound of your voice. I see homes restored at the sight of your touch. In your hands can carve a legacy. In your breath can rule nations. The question I ask you, is will you arise to be what I know you can and ought to be? Aren’t you tired of being less than? Aren’t you tired of being the headliner of bad news? Aren’t you tired of playing the role of scapegoat?
My head bleeds. I cannot sleep. I cannot eat. I want men to arise and take their place. The reason why the majority of our girls run around in confusion and delusion is due to the carelessness of forefathers. You need to change that. You need to be the difference that our world needs. You need to build homes and empires. You need to walk in purpose. You need to stand up for your dreams. You need to weather the tides of struggles. You need to end the misconception of the fast life and walk in his light. You are only as great as you think you can be. Start dreaming. Starting planning. Starting taking your place as Warriors.
Annual Event 28th October 6-10pm

Do you know what falls under the top 10 global epidemic issues of our nations?
Not global warming!
Not a recession!
To reduce the amount of homeless people in our World
To help a 100 homeless people a month to get a hot meal
To lead them to other organisations that can help with housing, food and jobs.
Every last Friday of the month from 8am-12pm at Haggerston Community Centre, we would provide the community with breakfast, goody bags and lunch. During the concourse of the day, we would hold advice sessions, provide help on domestic issues, health check-ups, and job hubs and hold other basic need workshops. There will be activities on these Fridays and entertainment from speakers and artists. We want to endorse a place where they can feel at home. A place where they are reminded that they are not alone. A chance to remind them not to give up on hope. A home that they can feel safe. This is not just any homeless project. This is a platform for all those that think they are invisible. This is a chance for us to end the cycle of homelessness. Today we challenge the perception that homeless people are not human. This could have been one of us. This was me 3 years ago on the streets of New York. This was me when I thought I could not make it. This was me 1 year ago when I was sleeping in my car.
Someone was there for me and gave me a chance. So I want to do the same again for those who have no one. I want to tell you that you are not alone. In the Sapphire Community Group, you have a “Second Home”.
The Sapphire Community Group is not stopping here but is also going to Nigeria and India this year. We would rebuild a broken nation.
Join Us today!

“We want to give young people struggling with mental illness a voice”
To remind them that they are not alone.
We know where they are standing. We know what it feels like when you seem to be the only one carrying the world on your shoulders. We are here to give our young community hope. We are here to tell them that we know the voice of depression. We know what it feels like to not be able to get out of bed in the morning. We know what it feels like to feel like you want to take your life and end the voices. But we are here to show you that there is hope and light after that dark tunnel. You can make it through the pain and we are here to help. We want to help you get back into society and not be ashamed of your scars. Your experience would only make you stronger and together we can help others stand and to see another day.
We would hold creative meetups where we do different things such as movie nights, quiz nights, dinners, poetry nights, and art and design nights etc. Every month would be something different. A place where you are free to be yourself. A place where you are not judged for being different. A place where your scars do not define you. A place where we give you a hope. A place where you get to stand in the light and share. A place we love and do not tear down dreams.
I heard that the ones who have been through the rain would come out as warriors. We are not damaged goods because of our mental health problems. We are the innovators. We are the artists. We are the writers. We are the visionaries. We are the hope of our tomorrow.
We are the dreamers.
This year 2018 we would hold an event every 3 months at Haggerston Community Centre starting in April.
Every Last Friday Of The Month
The Dreamers Every 3 Months starting from April

A day we showcase young people's art work in London. Many artists in our world our struggling to get a break. Many families are advicing their children not to be an artist, because they are under the impression that it is not a career and that there is no profit there.
However what SCG is trying to say, is that are we to live a life of profit or of passion? Do we take the easy life or do we live a life worth living in despite of hardships? They say that the fight will not be easy. They say that making history or cultivating a legacy will mean going to the ends of the rope even when there seems to be no sunshine. Are you ready to fight for what you love?
PUSH means you will keep pushing yourself even when you want to give up. Even when it means that you are giving life all you have but there are no hopeful results. It is a metaphor to symbolise resilience, tenacity and determination.
Not only would we empower young people's work, but also teach you free of charge how to cultivate the artistic talents within. We have sessions for Under 5s, Under 12s, 13-17 and 18 up.
Art tells a story. Art liberates. Art unites homes. Art expresses. Art heals. Art is therapy. Art is life. We want to educate and empower our world through the beauty of Art. Its called PUSH, because it pushes all the pain, negativity and creates the image of hope.
Join us for a whole day of art. A day to celebrate generations of legacies.
Additionally, there will be an art evening show starting from 5-9 where there will be food, drinks, entertainment, talks from the artists, poetry, music and artists work on sale.
