As the app nears completion, it’ll soon be time to release Poetic Places into the wild and let you good folk experience the result of the project.
To celebrate, we’ve decided to hold a free half-day event at the British Library Conference Centre in London on Friday 18th March 2016, starting at 13:30. We thought this would be a great opportunity to bring together and hear about a variety of projects that deal with literature, cultural heritage and place, to explore different methods and share our findings.
Five excellent speakers and myself will be taking attendees through our work. We’ll also have tea and a short walk where I’ll invite you to install the app and explore the poetic places around the British Library.
We’ll be hearing from:
- Sarah Cole, Poetic Places
- Andy Ryan, CityRead London
- Dr Giasemi Vavoula, Affective Digital Histories
- Maya Chowdhry, Tales from Towpath
- Dr David Cooper, Manchester Metropolitan University, on literary geographies
- Jocelyn Dodd, Talking Statues
There are limited places available for this free event, so go to https://poeticplaces.eventbrite.co.uk to secure yours.
For those that can’t make it on the day, we’ll hopefully be recording the event to make it available online.
We look forward to seeing some of you then!
