Growth Exhibition

We’re thrilled to introduce our poet in residence for 2021, Will Burns, who will be working with OmVed Gardens throughout the year ahead.

Throughout the year, Will will be collaborating with us on a full programme of events, drop in sessions and specially commissioned new work inspired by OmVed.

The first poetry and creative writing workshop with Will is part of the Growth Exhibition Programme. Using the broad thematic diving board of ‘growth’ and creative writing to explore new ways in which we might appreciate the nature of place. You will look at other writer’s work concerning gardens and nature, exercises and direct contact with the space to create new work infused with the beauty and energy of the gardens at OmVed.

Will has been a long-time contributor to the online nature journal Caught by the River, and has extensive experience delivering events and workshops that focus on the natural world, our place in it, and how the disciplines associated with writing – observation, curiosity and the creative expression of experience can help deepen our understanding of our natural surroundings. Will has published numerous works of poetry and his first novel is forthcoming this summer, for which he was selected as one of The Observer’s Top 10 Debut Novelists of 2021.

This event is part of the Growth Exhibition by OmVed Gardens and Thrown Contemporary, taking place from May 12th to June 14th 2021 at OmVed Gardens.

Event tickets available here.
