Health Tips For The Year Ahead at StudioRCA

Lines of poetry in bath_web

An interactive poetry installation, conceived and curated by Helen Eastman and Anna Bruder, and inspired by a poem by NJ Hynes.

Now that we’re in the new year, perhaps it’s time to turn to three thousand years of poetry for some advice, humour, solace and wisdom. In this installation, surround yourself with poems writ large on the walls, take time to listen to some poetry vinyl, self-medicate from the poetry prescriptions and pop some poetry pills to make it all a little better. Or maybe hop onto a bike and power some poetry palliatives…

You can pop in to browse, hang out, be inspired, nurse a hangover or write back to the poems in the installation. Add your new year’s resolutions to the exhibition (in haiku form) and help us start 2019 as we mean to go on.

Opening Times:
Thursday 3-9pm
Friday 12-6pm
Saturday 12-6pm
Sunday 11-5pm
