Fusing history and poetry to celebrate the Dockyard

Photo of the historic Dockyard gatesWe are delighted to announce that Wordsmithery (Barry and Sam Fentiman-Hall) will be part of ‘One Day Works’ in the run-up to the Fuse Festival this year.

Wordsmithery will spend one day in the Kent Cultural Baton writing ‘Delta3.0’ a chain love letter to the river, a 30 stanza epic poem written in one day, about the 30 years since Chatham Dockyard closed.

One Day Works is  a series of one day experiments happening in the lead up to and during the Fuse festival in a series of locations across Medway, from urban high streets to country villages. The project will showcase ten of the finest of Medway’s Creative talents, across a range of art forms. The works also include sculptures made from found objects, archival collections, insect inspired costumes, drawings made from thread, an acoustic live music gig and a magic lantern performance.

Wordsmithery will be located at the Historic Dockyard on 6 June 2014, where we will be writing our poem. Come along and say hello, and contribute a line, or a memory, or an idea to the poem!
