    Throughout our current exhibition, Open 2: Pieces of You, six emerging artists share a curiosity in exploring how we gather and make meaning of our experiences.

    Led by poet Pauline Rowe, join us for a series of three creative writing workshops and respond to this new exhibition through an accessible and joyful engagement with poetry.

    During the third workshop in the series we will spend time looking at the exhibition and exploring aspects of human presence in the images, whether overtly there or imagined in the person of the photographer. Is a photograph always some kind of biographical statement? We will read and consider the poems The Vacation by Wendell Berry and Rembrandt’s Late Self-Portraits by Elizabeth Jennings and write our own individual pieces in response.

    The event is free however booking is required. To reserve your place please call +44 (0)151 236 6768 or email
