Want to visit the exhibition?
We are just finalising a couple of details for the festival program, but thought we would share what we have confirmed so far:
Exhibition open to the public: Sunday 12-7pm and Monday 4-7pm (Just turn up)
The exhibition will feature over 60 photographs taken over the last five years by the talents that are: George Sydney Selwyn-Brace, Marie De Lutz, Laurie Poole, Lauren Marschall, Anthony Adams and Cathal Moran. Some of the poets featured in the photographs will be appearing throughout the day to do an impromptu 5 minute performance of their work.
Alongside the photographs there will be a video installation and five different sound installations to listen to, spanning the last five years of Spoken Word London. A team of volunteers will be on hand throughout the day to answer any questions and curate the live performances (look out for the person in the top hat).
This exhibition has been designed by the incredible Iris Colomb.
Want to take part in a workshop?
Ekphrastic Workshops: Sunday 1pm, 3pm, 5pm and Monday 5pm Each session lasts approx 30 mins (Just turn up)
Ekphrasis means description in Greek. These workshops have been carefully designed by Iris Colomb to complement the exhibition and will involve engaging with the images to produce a short piece of writing. Open to all ages and abilities.
