The premiere of the Poetry + Video curated programme took place in May in Murwillumbah, Australia.
An hour-long collection, put together by curator Marie Craven, it surveys diverse contemporary expressions of this hybrid form. A wide range of approaches includes: screen adaptations of page poetry, prose poetry, poetry from found text and media, animations, poetic cinema, text-on-screen, and spoken word.
I am taking on the role of UK manager, and am currently seeking UK venues to screen the programme.
