Poetry Reading: Howick, Thurs 13th Oct 2016
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to go sharper” – W. B. Yeats. The exhibition Sacred Economies and its accompanying poetry reading draw our attention to how experiences of the sacred manifest through social transactions. It is interested in how rituals give life to events and objects that can transform our ordinary ways of thinking about and participating in the world. How do transactions of forms like poetry or folklore, which hold little monetary value, create an economy of sacred moments?
Thursday 13th October, 6.30pm
Malcolm Smith Gallery: 35 Uxbridge Road, Howick
The poetry reading is a free event and a great chance to check out the accompanying exhibition and the gallery itself.
