Event description

Description

Poetic Places is a CreativeWorks London funded collaborative project between the British Library and TIME/IMAGE that aspires to give a renewed sense of place, to bring together written works, images and sounds to mean more than they do alone, and to bring literature into people’s everyday life in unexpected moments.

Soon to be released as a free mobile app for iOS and Android, Poetic Places will allow users to encounter poems and literature in the locations described, along with evocative audiovisual materials drawn from archive collections.

To celebrate the launch of the app, the British Library is hosting a half-day event around poetic places and the technologies that allow us to connect with them.

There will be talks from:

Afternoon tea will be provided.

After the talks there will be a short walk where you’re invited to try out the Poetic Places app for yourself; you will need to install the app on your own device to enjoy this fully, so please bring an iOS or Android device.
