“Voices” at Inspire Poetry Festival
Voices presents a thought-provoking collection of poetry created by and with people whose voices, for health, social or age related reasons, may rarely be heard, combined with photography of those involved.
Voices is a community poetry project led and facilitated by writer and performed Ben Norris (better known as Ben Archers in The Archers on Radio 4) with photographs by Ben Harriot in collaboration with Inspire:Culture, Learning and Libraries. The results will be displayed in various libraries around Nottinghamshire throughout 2019 and 2020.
The residents at Woodleighcare were delighted to get involved in such a unique project and some of the amazing poetry is shown in the pictures here and we hope to have an exhibition of them in the homes shortly. They are on display in Mansfield Central Library.
