A Walk for Terminalia with Thread and Word
Through Thread and Word we are organising a collaborative walk - inviting participation with interventions and eco-poetry in Seasalter which is between Whitstable and Faversham,in Kent. There is a proposal to build 1,000s of solar panels , along part of our route through Seasalter which will decimate the surrounding environment.
The walk on Saturday Feb 23rd
is part of the Terminalia Festival http://terminaliafestival.org.
which celebrates the Roman God of boundaries Terminus. We will use this date and in the spirit of Terminus, we will gather and walk in the surrounding countryside to explore ideas and consider where we draw the line as we try to protect our environment. We will use threads to record our thoughts as we respond to the surrounding landscape and poetry readings chosen from the eco-poetry archive to inspire our thoughts related to the area.
The walk will focus on the boundaries between alternative ways of producing energy and our surrounding environment and natural habitat.
We will end up in a local pub where we will write a short declaration of findings it might even be a poem!
I hope you can join us. Although the walk is free numbers will be limited and you are encouraged to book by emailing Billie.
