Event description
Award-winning poet Ben Ray brings together oral history testimony and poetry in this exciting workshop.

About this Event

Taking place over an afternoon, it will culminate in an evening performance for all comers.

The afternoon will comprose of a discussion and workshop where we discuss the links between oral history and poetry, how to extrapolate them and how to build poetry from raw testimony.

Throughout the afternoon participants will then write their own poems, with Ben's supervision and assistance. The session could then end with an evening performance of everyone's work, potentially with an extended set from Ben with pre-prepared poetry from testimonies recorded from the Gwent Levels (inlcuding sound recordings, images and other prompts))

No previous poetry or oral history recording is required, come and have a go!

Afternoon session 2pm-6pm with performance at 7pm
