POMA Arts presents a new project for 2018
A WORD AND IMAGE PROJECT BY SHAUN BELCHER
I intend to produce a series of poems and illustrations in the manner of Julia Wetz’s Tenements, Towers and Trash project in New York.
I also inspired by SETH’s glorious work.
The original mechanics cinema now near what now the YMCA building. Corner of Burton Street.
Each illustration will be accompanied by a poem on the building depicted. I may make ten such images if lucky by April 21st-28th when Jermy & Westerman bookshop have kindly said I can display the works with a special opening view on Saturday 21st pm and maybe a reading with other poets on the final Saturday of the festival the 28th depending on NPF timetable clashes etc.
The project is the beginning of a bigger ‘Lost Nottingham’ project that might open up to involve other artists and poets if funding can be found as I do not have the resources or enough years left to cover all of Nottingham.
Following on from the successful inaugural reading event at Jermy & Westerman Secondhand Bookshop I am pleased to announce that Neil Fulwood and Alan Baker will be our guests on Wednesday 31st May 6.30-8.30 pm.
Refreshments once again will be available.
Here photos from the reading event at Doctor’s Orders Micropub ‘Talking to the Wall’ where poems contributed to the open submission were read by a group of poets who took part. This was added to the official events in this year’s highly successful Poetry Festival
Here photos of the event…
