With an election around the corner, we’ve invited five prospective parliamentary candidates to discuss their views and policies around culture and creativity. This is your opportunity to ask the politicians how they see Exeter’s cultural community developing over the coming years and the values they place on creativity in all areas of life.
A performance featuring poets from the exhibition will take place at The Hall, Exeter This will showcase work produced from our workshops alongside established poets working with themes of eco-poetry and conflict over natural resources, including readings from Allen Fisher, Maggie O’Sullivan, Harriet Tarlo and Judith Prince.
Eco-poetry is the study of the ways that poetry can address ecological issues. Open to all, this workshop run by poets Elizabeth-Jane Burnett and Camilla Nelson will explore the ideas of eco-poetry and allow participants to experiment with the theme of conflict over natural resources.
