Interventions - site-specific poetry commission with Ian Duhig

With support from The Poetry School’s Lo and Behold! Micro-Commission Fund, Ian Duhig has created a series of site-specific poetry interventions at Sewerby Hall in response to its recent renovations and its position as a silent witness to some remarkable historical events. Situated amongst objects and furniture, Ian’s poetry will provide a backdrop to the building, its belongings, its inhabitants and history. Over the main festival weekend, Ian will lead a tour around the hall taking in his poems, and will run a workshop to introduce his highly original research methods within the context of the project.
