What to Bring When You Leave
What To Bring When We Leave is a unique, continuous live performance by Tom French (word) and Danny Diamond (fiddle). Each artist stretches the other’s narratives in spoken and unspoken airs, finding solace in the unexpected places between.
This week’s theme is inspired by Brendan Kennelly’s poem, ‘Begin’. The first line is ‘Begin again to the summoning birds’.
In this Bright Sparks Creative Burst explore hidden stories by using everyday junk found around the house to inspire us to create some original pieces of work. With a little inspiration from Sarah Crossan’s #wearethepoets postcards, Sarah Webb uses blackout poetry and highlights words to make a poem. Download the materials to create some poetry or prose of your very own!
