Poetry Workshop: Sammy Weaver – Muses Within Museums

June 17 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM BST

Muses Within Museums

How can museums and their exhibits be starting points for new poems? How might song be found in the muted silences of museums? How can the poetic imagination help us envisage different stories, memories and futures for our museums?

We will first explore how museums offer a certain way of looking. Through generative writing exercises, you will examine the embodied politics that such observation throws into question and how oblique approaches can surprise you into creating new poems.

You will come away with new writing and new ideas for discovering your own muses within both real and imagined museums. Our guides will be the poems of Daljit Nagra, Raymond Antrobus, Sylvia Plath and Alice Oswald.
