Following on from the incredible input from Zahra Delilah, we hosted a ‘panel in the round’ as the room was full of great thinkers. Then we had a world cafe conversation in which we asked the question: “What might be possible with a politics of love in Morecambe Bay?” We then challenged each table to write a poem as a summary of their discussion! They had the choice of and ABAB four liner, a limerick or a haiku! There were some truly excellent and amusing offerings.
Here are the links to the panel discussion and the poems. Enjoy!
As part of the ‘love and kindness’ series on the Black Swan Podcast, I interviewed the brilliant and award winning Spoken Word Poet, Matt Sowerby. Matt is 18 and lives in Morecambe Bay. I find his words to be beautiful, challenging and moving. Here are the links on iTunes and Spotify if you want to hear him perform and listen to us discussing a variety of things from education, to climate change strikes and politics. Hope you enjoy! You can also find his poem ‘breadlines’, which didn’t make it onto the podcast on YouTube with his other work.
