Poetry Pad

An interactive poetry installation, conceived and curated by Helen Eastman and Anna Bruder, and inspired by a poem by NJ Hynes.

Times are tough, and perhaps it’s time to turn to three thousand years of poetry for some advice, humour, solace and wisdom.

In this installation, surround yourself with poems writ large on the walls, take time to listen to some poetry vinyl, self-medicate from the poetry prescriptions and pop some poetry pills to make it all a little better. If it still feels too much, bathe in the complete works of Emily Dickinson, or hop onto a bike and power some poetry palliatives…

You can pop in to browse, hang out, be inspired, nurse a hangover or write back to the poems in the installation… Come and explore.
