Artists & The Community
Artsreach runs a variety of innovative participatory projects across the County, working with a diverse range of communities and across art forms.
Ridgeway Writing Project (2015 - 2016)
Do you live on the South Dorset Ridgeway and love poetry? Would you like to explore your relationship with the landscape around it? Look at it and listen to it in new ways?

We are looking for people who are interested in creating poems inspired by the South Dorset Ridgeway to take part in an exciting new writing project, led by Greta Stoddart and supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Through a series of 4 Saturday and Sunday workshops* taking place at various venues within the Ridgeway, participants will explore - both literally and metaphorically - the landscape of this inspiring area.

Please be aware that the Saturday workshops are intended for those relatively new to writing poetry while the Sundays are for the more experienced.
Spaces are limited so to apply for a place, please send 2 of your poems to Artsreach at the address below, or by email to info@artsreach.co.uk, by Monday 13 April.

Please include a brief paragraph about your interest in the Ridgeway and your name, address, telephone number or email address.

Workshops will run from 10am-4pm and places for all 4 sessions will be £40.

9 or 10 May - Martinstown
6 or 7 June - Sutton Poyntz
20 or 21 June - Litton Cheney
4 or 5 July - Portesham
