Transformative Futures Online: Sound poetry - Camden Art Centre

Led by sound artists and members of Camden Art Centre's youth group, Sophie Barrett-Pouleau and Lydia Poole ran a workshop exploring sound poetry as a medium for artistic expression and sonic exploration.

The workshop delved into a brief history of sound poetry and focus on collective and individual sound making to form written and performed sound poems. The outcome of the workshop will be platformed on Camden Art Centre’s digital channels and selected works will form part of the second iteration of ineffable zine and feature in a physical exhibition in May 2022.
