Groups included - IPOP - The Inclusive Play Opportunities Project based in Barnet, The Womens Institute and Contact the Elderly. The groups were invited to bring an object of their choice to talk about, KAA's also invited poet Esther Morgan who worked with the WI, concerning notions of home and introduced her own poetry to the group.
