51 VOICES: SPOKEN WORD
Free poetry workshops inspired by the collections
To mark our 70th year, The MERL is working with people to explore and respond to 51 objects from or collected in 1951 – relating them to priorities and passions of the past, present and future.
Supported by the University of Reading Arts Committee, and working with colleagues in English, 51 Voices – Spoken Word is a connected event with poetry and spoken word participatory workshops and activities on National Poetry Day using these collections items as the starting point for inspiring writing.
