Derventio arts project events at Derby Book Festival and Haarlem Artspace
Out of the Box is part of a three-year arts programme working with people at Derventio Housing Trust’s Growing Lives project in Ilkeston, Derbyshire.
From generously shared personal stories, artist Jan Flamank condensed gentle conversations into haiku-style poems, using only people’s own words. The poems are presented alongside personal photographs in a book and a display of small boxes. The project gives a glimpse into the real lives of local people who have been through tough times.
Out of the Box will feature at the following venues:
