Poetry on Film

Check out these eight fantastic videos, made in collaboration with NTU Students and poets from across Nottingham!

One of the best things about being a city of literature is that we can connect up creatives from different disciplines and help create wonderful projects! Recently, we worked with Dr Catherine Adams at Nottingham Trent University to connect her students to local poets in the city, supporting them to produce these marvellous poetry videos!

As part of our recent Poetry Pulse Project, we’ve been exploring the ways in which poetry can be elevated and enhanced by expression through digital media. We introduced a group of Communication & Society and Media BA (Hons) students at Nottingham Trent University to a group of professional poets, and let the sparks fly!

Check out the videos below, with poems by Sue Allen, Rebecca Cullen, Sue Dymoke, Martin Grey, Manjit Sahota, Tuesday Shannon, Lauren Terry and Lytisha Tunbridge.
