Sorry: but this event has been postponed due to technical difficulties. I’ll post an update when I’ve a new date.

If you’re in Sheffield on Weds Sept 1st around 7.30, come to Bank St for a private view of Catalyst.

Catalyst is a new poetry and photography exhibit.  Bank Street Arts writer in residence, Angelina Ayers, invited Sheffield poets to write in response to a photography slideshow called Triptych, curated by James Dodd of Statement Images.  The poems that came from this experience were then sent out to another set of photographers.  These photographers were asked to take images in response to the poems. Catalyst presents the three stages together.

The private viewing will include readings by the poets: Chris Jones (currently shortlisted for the Forward Prize), Matt Black, Matthew Clegg, Mark Goodwin, myself, Fay Musselwhite and Angelina Ayers. Sound artist Hervé Perez from Sndsukinspook Music will also create a live sound installation in response to the images and text.

The event is free, should be interesting, and you’ll be supporting local artists and writers.

You can find more details of the project here: and read Angelina’s blog on her work here:
