Words at Wilton Park: Spring 2023
This spring, visit Living Canvas: Words at Wilton Park from May 15th through June 25th for rotating screenings of six of our poem films and even more exciting film offerings from artists and poets!
Living Canvas, the largest outdoor digital arts screen in Europe, has brought together seven short film programs this season for free public viewing. This special event, funded by IPUT Real Estate Dublin, is designed to overlap with the International Literature Programme Dublin.
The films engage deeply with the creative milieus of Dublin and places beyond: Alan Gilsenan's film Ghosts of Baggotonia celebrates the Dublin neighborhood's abundant cultural life, alongside film projects from Catherine Ann Cullen, the What is My Nation project, and others.
Our component of the program, Poetry on Film, marks our third contribution to Living Canvas programming in the past two years. Six poem films by director Matthew Thompson appear, created variously with our partners Poetry Ireland, Irish Arts Center, Poet in the City, and RADA.
- Moncho Alvarado performs her poem "Amá Teaches Me How to Whistle"
- Khairani Barokka performs Toeti Heraty's poem "To the Harbour (Ke Pelabuhan)"
- Patrick Fusco performs William Blake's poem "A Poison Tree"
- Sarah Sala performs her poem "Hydrogen"
- Sasha Terfous performs her poem "Identity."
- Jessica Traynor performs her poem "Onion Poem"
Visit Wilton Park on Mondays from 12 pm to 4 pm, on Tuesdays and Sundays from 4 pm to 8 pm, on Wednesdays from 8 pm to 9:30 pm, and on Fridays from 8:30 am to 12 pm to watch these international poetry films on the Living Canvas screen!
