kin’d & kin’d: field fairing – a workshop

5 October 2021
6:30 pm
8:30 pm

‘I mean river as a verb. A happening. It is moving with me right now.’

– Natalie Diaz in ‘The First Water is the Body’

The third happening in field fairing, the eco-poetry series with kin’d and kin’d, will be a participatory online workshop. It will take the elements as a starting point and look at four poems concerned with earth, water, air and fire, from poets from diverse communities across the world, whilst exploring the notion of indigeneity in relation to the elemental. All are welcome. Read more about the event here.
