What Am I Doing
SOUTH LOWESTOFT VIDEO POEM
I am currently creating a new video poem, commissioned by East Suffolk Council under the London Road, Lowestoft High Street Heritage Action Zone. This follows the popular 'Right Up Your Street' 10-minute video poem, created last autumn, which shone a spotlight on the north end of the town's High Street and Scores under the North Lowestoft Heritage Action Zone.
I'm in the process of gathering memories from residents and shopkeepers – former and current – via social media for the video poem that will generate fresh appreciation for the south of Lowestoft. If you have any photographs or memories to share, please do get in touch. The video poem will have an online launch in June.
I am also creating a video poem about Halesworth, as part of my Celebrating Us residency for Suffolk Artlink and DanceEast. You can read more about the project here.
MAKE DO AND FRIENDS - MR PICKLES OF LAXFIELD
I've been doing some Creative Conversations for Suffolk Artlink's Make Do & Friends project. These are friendly phone-calls to someone in a rural community in Suffolk. I chat to them for about an hour and then turn our conversation into a poem.
