‘Bona Polari!’ which is gay slang meaning ‘good chat!’

At this workshop led by Lee Campbell you’ll learn about Polari and its sociohistorical significance, engage in a creative writing exercise using Polari at its base, and develop skills in sharing your writing in an informal, non-judgemental way. At the start of the workshop, participants watch a short poetry film by Lee called The Tale of Benny Harris (2022) a film written entirely in Polari.

Dr Lee Campbell is an artist. performance poet, experimental filmmaker, writer, Senior Lecturer at University of the Arts London, and curator/founder of Homo Humour.
