Hydropoetics

Walton, S (2016) Hydropoetics. In: Wilderness, 4 -7 August 2016, Cornbury Park, Charlbury, UK.

Abstract

What does it mean to think, write and co-exist with water? Samantha Walton, a poet and researcher based at Bath Spa University, leads a talk and workshop to introduce the emerging practice of ‘hydropoetics’ and asks what role writing and creative practice has to play in changing the ways we relate to each other and connected ecologies through water

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)
Additional Information:

The work was repeated at Green Man Festival, Brecon Beacons, 18 - 21 August 2016.

The theme of the events was ‘hydropoetics'. Audiences were introduced to the emerging practice of hydropoetics, and encouraged to reflect on the role that writing and creative practice has to play in changing the ways we relate to each other and connected ecologies through water. The talk was followed by a ‘cut-up’ poetry session in which new and more confident writers, from the ages of 6 to 60, made original compositions from fragments of found text and images.
