Wandering Words are popping by Nucleus Arts Centre tomorrow afternoon to perform poetry, as part of their walk from Chatham to Faversham! Everyone is welcome and it is free!
A group of young poets are undertaking a series of walks across Kent and Medway, led by poet and adventurer Michael James Parker, as part of the Wandering Words project. At times they will walk together and at times they will walk separately – making the most of the opportunity to engage with people who live in the area but also to experience as much of the urban and rural landscape as possible.
On Saturday 22nd of August they would like people to join them at:
Where: The Nucleus Arts Centre, 272 High Street, Chatham – in the Second Courtyard.
When: 1:00pm – 3:00 pm
There will be a few short pop up poetry performances, plus they will also be asking you about your experience of living in Swale or Medway:
What drew you to the place?
Are there any unexpected spaces or hidden gems?
What myths, legends or stories can you share?
Wandering Words are also exploring what it feels like to take time out of our lives to walk and are interested in whether you have undertaken any journeys that have had a big impact on your life.
Wandering Words is a writing project and online platform that is putting the written word on the map in Swale & Medway.
By commissioning new writing about the landscape, architecture, communities and heritage of the area to be hosted on this website, we hope we can inspire others to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard and share their work here too.
Blogs, poetry, journalism, graphic novels – all are welcome – we want to create a digital library of written reflections on the area.
Wandering Words is developed, managed and funded by Ideas Test (which is part of Arts Council England’s Creative People and Places Programme).
