Weaving a poem

Thursday 27 March 2014

Canadian Birch Basket This year at StAnza we collaborated with MUSA (the Museum of the University of St Andrews) on an installation featuring artefacts from Commonwealth countries held by the museum and poems about them commissioned by StAnza specially for the festival. The poems and images of artefacts in 'A Common Wealth of Artefacts' were projected in the Byre foyers during the festival and at the same time MUSA posted them on their blog. We are pleased now to be re-posting these articles on the StAnza Blog, and here's the first of them by Chris Gilpin from Canada and Gale Burns from London (but Canada originally). You can also hear Chris reading his poem online at https://soundcloud.com/stanzapoetry/birch-basket-behind-glass-by
