Come and join this free, unique ticketed workshop interpreting voices, memory and local history through poetry - part of the Living Levels Landscape Project which delivers a programme of work which will promote and reconnect people to the heritage, wildlife and wild beauty of the historic landscape of the Gwent Levels. This event is suitable for all ages, and will be a stimulating and creative engagement in the vibrant local community and history of the Gwent Levels.

This workshop interweaves and interprets memory and stories collected through the Living Levels project with the expressive medium of poetry through an interactive workshop involving discussion, creation and collaboration. Participants will learn how to use poetry to examine, transform and respond to communal memory and history from the local area. Throughout the afternoon participants will create their own poetry from recordings and written sources, which can then be shared and discussed. The session will finish with a performance where all participants have the option to read their work to the group. It will take place on Saturday 22nd February, 1-5.30pm at Rumney Methodist Church, Cardiff. Get your free ticket to this event via the website here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/voices-and-performance-poetry-tickets-86694935887
