These poets, our kin / These poems, our stories is my debut exhibition as curator. It is the first time that a public poetry exhibition has taken place in a commercial shopping centre in the world.
The exhibition was an opportunity to showcase Doncaster’s diverse range of talented poets writing today. All poets selected were either born in Doncaster or currently call the town their home.
These poets, our kin / These poems, our stories opened in the Art Space in the Frenchgate Centre in April 2017. Initially meant to be displayed until September 2017, due to feedback from the general public it is still on display as of January 2019.
