Poetry workshop for UCL students and staff

Spend some time exploring the Lost and Found: Mapping European Literary London exhibition, and in turn take a deeper look into the places and experiences that have shaped you. Poet and musician Remi Graves will lead the workshop encouraging you to think deeply about the places in and beyond London that have had a lasting impact on you.

The session will consist of a variety of writing exercises and prompts offering different routes into memories and feelings around the places that mean something to you.

No prior experience or knowledge of poetry or writing is necessary.

This workshop is produced by UCL Art Museum in response to UCL European Institute, the Faculty of the Arts and Humanities, and the UCL Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis collaborative project Lost and Found: A European Literary Map of London.
