Our 'Lead writer' Philip Davenport, is taking part in the prestigious Text Festival in North West England.....
The Text Festival occupies the boundaries between art and poetry, examining the response of text artists and poets to the substantial ambiguity of language. A 12 week programme of events held in Bury, Lancashire, featuring exhibitions, public art commissions, publications and performances by internationally recognised practitioners and some of the newest talents in the field.
This is the major British festival based on the idea that art can be read as poetry and poetry can be viewed as art.
Text Festival Programme Announced: two major American poets perform at the Festival: headlining Ron Silliman’s first ever reading in the UK plus renowned visual poet Geof Huth.
New works by Hester Reeve (the.HRH), Carolyn Thompson, Tony Lopez, Phil Davenport, Nick Thurston, Liz Collini, Carol Watts and many more…
Commissioned Bury poems by UK writers Phil Davenport, Carol Watts, Tony Lopez, performed on 2nd May 2pm Bury Met Art Centre.
