Digital Workshop: Sounds of Words / Words of Sounds with Will Harris

DPF presents a digital workshop with Will Harris. For two hours we'll be playing with - and stretching - the links between objects, words and sounds. From the comfort of our own homes, we'll share stories, learn to listen closely, and stay as connected as we can to the nonsense within.

Derby Poetry Festival presents a digital workshop with Will Harris. For two hours we'll be playing with - and stretching - the links between objects, words and sounds. From the comfort of our own homes, we'll share stories, learn to listen closely to things, and stay as connected as we can to the nonsense within. You’re sure to have fun and create something marvellous.

Ticket Options:

At Derby Poetry Festival, we aim to make our events and workshops as accessible as possible, so everyone can take part. Which is why we have 3 ticket options available. 'Event Ticket - Supported' is a discounted rate ticket for those on a lower income to still be able to access the event. Our standard ticket is the normal rate of the event, and goes towards paying our artists, accessibility coordinators and associated fees with holding the festival. Our Pay It Forward ticket option is for those who wish to contribute towards the supported tickets, as well as attending the event. This helps us provide more supported tickets and host bigger and better events that everyone can access. Each ticket option allows you the same access to the event.
