kin’d & kin’d
Our exciting new eco-poetry course, inspired by the extraordinary Planet Earth Museum and Gardens at Paradise Park, Newhaven (which explores the evolution of single-celled beings to humans up to the present day’s ecological challenges to our planet) will take place at Planet Earth and at ONCA’s Barge* which looks out to sea from Brighton Marina.
This playful course is about imagining or conceptualising the wrack line where human and non-human habitats meet, rather than a close exploration of the coastline. Working outside and inside these two leisure-pleasure locations, a strange map-line may evolve. Drawing on an international range of coastal poetry and ideas about how we imagine Paradise and its opposite, the course will provide plenty of time for writing, collaboration, conversation and interacting in unexpected ways with our chosen environments.
