Event Category: History & Heritage
As part of an exciting new writing residency called Heart of Stone, Portland Museum is working with poet, writer and creative facilitator, Sarah Acton, to bring to life the heritage of Portland’s Stone Quarries, including real and imagined lives shaped by Portland stone past present and future, through creative writing, poetry and performance.
These Discussion Cafes are a time to sit and share memories and stories of stone, quarries and Portland. The events are free, so please come and enjoy, and bring a flask of tea and a cushion/ blanket! (If it is raining the event will move indoors).
Sarah will be collecting memories and words throughout events at the Museum to weave into a new performance piece that will be inspired by the residency. You can meet Sarah and listen to readings from her new work-in-development at the end of the residency on Thursday 24th October 2-3pm in the Stone Room of the Museum.
