The Climate of Change Poetry Workshops: Nurturing Cities and Towns

16 May @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Explore poems about cities and towns with an environmental lens and grow your own places of nature and sustainability.

Wherever you live, cities and towns are key to our culture, lifestyles and carbon footprints. How do we envisage our cities and towns in the Anthropocene?  What kinds of spaces and places for nature could there be? How might we live a more connected, more human, more climate-friendly and nature-led life in cities and towns? What sort of connections do we have with cities and towns if we live in rural or remote areas? What we nurture in our cities and towns matters.  Even in a big city, there’s still the possibility of interaction with and encouragement of nature. Glimpses of nature are crucial to the next generation, wellbeing and sustainability.

Part of a series of international poetry workshops on The Climate of Change, led by Perth-born London-based poet, Cath Drake. In this time of great change, and writers are at the forefront of describing and envisaging change. We will explore cherishing and re-envisaging our world. We need innovation, understanding, adaptation and resilience as our climate changes and as we try to do what we can

Cost: £GBP 27 per session or £GBP 75 for three sessions.
