Environment and Memory: Emilie Dufresne

Environment and Memory, Saturday 10th November, 2018

A poetry workshop with Emilie Dufresne

We held a psychogeography poetry workshop asking people to consider memory of place and experience of place over time. The workshop included walks around the town, inviting participants to experience their environment blind, and then later in the workshop try and retrace their steps and see how they experienced the environment differently. The idea was to explore how memories change how we experience place, especially those places we have known previously and subsequently revisit. The method comes from a body of work of Emily’s and she read some of this at the workshop as well. 

If you are keen on writing, on mixing words and images, using one to stimulate and inspire the other, then our writing workshops will be for you. They are becoming a regular thing and we have a star-line up of experienced and talented poets, writers and artists to inspire you.
