Poetry For Wellbeing
Sun 15 May 2022
1hr 30mins running time
£10 | Free if you book a ticket for Liv's show 'Haiflu Ever After'
Celebrated spoken word poet Liv Torc brings a special 1.5-hour workshop to the Exeter Phoenix this National Poetry Day, ahead of her one-woman show Haiflu Ever After.
Using poetry, creative writing and joyful expression we’ll explore themes of wellbeing in a post pandemic world, taking inspiration from Liv’s global Haiflu project, which uses haiku, photography and music to tell the social history of lockdown. Together we’ll tell our stories using haiku and group poetry, which will become part of the ever-growing online Haiflu archive. All human-beings welcome. No preparation or experience needed. All you need is a willingness to have a go.
Liv is an experienced workshop facilitator who has been lead artist on Take Art’s social prescribing project Word/Play for nearly ten years, supporting hundreds of adults to achieve better mental health through accessing their creativity and poetic voice. Liv has also run large scale participation projects engaging thousands of people from all over the world to use poetry in telling their stories.
This workshop is presented by Spork! Poetry and is £10.00 to book, or free if you also book a ticket for Haiflu Ever After. Discount is automatically applied at checkout if you book for both. Open to anyone! For any questions about the workshop or access needs, please email Spork! at firstname.lastname@example.org
