Ebb and Flow Project – A Community Poem for the Bristol Harbour Festival

The Bristol Older People’s Forum is working with The Bristol Harbour Festival to create a community poem – written and performed by older people at the Harbourside Festival in July.

You will be working with a professional poet and sharing stories of the comings and goings from and to Bristol over the last six decades, with a focus on how the city has changed using the historical harbour and the docks as our starting point.

You don’t have to be a William Wordsworth or Simon Armitage! This is very much about working together, having fun, being creative and sharing your particular story.

The first workshop will be on Wednesday 15 June at 11:00 am -1:00 pm (on Zoom) and then for three more Wednesdays leading up to the festival.

You don’t need to commit to all the workshops, just come to any one of them. We may also do some of the sessions in-person, with travel expenses available.

If you would like to get involved or find out a bit more, please contact Ian Quaife on bopf@ageukbristol.org.uk or phone on 0117 927 9222.
