Each year StAnza commissions poets to respond to artefacts from the collections at MUSA, the Museum of the University of St Andrews. With reference to this year’s On the Road theme, the artefacts chosen for our 2017 festival were brought back by travellers to other lands. A digital installation of images of the artefacts and the resulting poems will be exhibited during the festival.
The following images from the University's collections feature:
Jerusalem Box, HC1996.1
Nansen’s Norwegian flag, HC800
Sketch by Nansen, HC1112
Self portrait by Nansen, HC213
Tibetan prayer stone, ET1977.105
In association with MUSA, the University of the Museum of St Andrews
