The Downs are haunted by a rich human and ecological history. In this creative-writing workshop led by Poet in Residence, Dr John Wedgwood Clarke, we’ll explore the people, flora and fauna that have shaped its distinctive landscape and think about how the traces of the past can inform writing our own experiences of the Downs.
Run in conjunction with the Friends of the Downs and Avon Gorge and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council via the Wastes and Strays project www.research.ncl.ac.uk/wastesandstrays .The event consists of a guided walk on the Downs in the morning and an indoor writing workshop in the Zoo’s Conservation Education Centre in the afternoon.
When: Sunday 15th May at 10.30am - 4.00pm
Where: At Bristol Zoo Gardens and on the Downs.
