Ferry Tales Creative Writing Workshops
Free (booking essential)
Ferry Tales is a community-based project which links the Isle of Wight to mainland ports, through the inter-connection of verbal, aural and visual arts. Poets, Robyn Bolam and Lydia Fulleylove and singer-songwriters, Paul Armfield and Dom Prag will involve groups – from ferry travellers to the socially and physically isolated – in making songs and poems exploring significant arrivals and departures in their lives, using commissioned photographs by Mark Lanigan. These, with writings and a soundtrack, will be showcased in exhibitions and events at a mainland port and on the Island. Lydia, guest poet, Maggie Sawkins, Robyn and Dom will also run workshops at several venues, mainland and Island.
