We are delighted to have artist Elisa Vladilo joining us from Italy this year for ALL to create for us one her trademark high-colour interventions. As part of our Day of Performance on October 25th, Elisa will be unveiling a striking 50m tarpaulin at the CU Sidgwick Site entitled Rhyme of Origin.
This project needs your poems to make it happen! Elisa is looking for Cambridge residents, students and visitors from different cultures to share poems from their homelands, which will be penned onto the super-sized canvas in both the original native language and English. You are invited to submit a favourite poem and to share your poem by participating in the event: you will be asked to write your poem onto the canvas alongside 30 other native poems.
To participate, please send a poem of your choice together with an English translation to firstname.lastname@example.org by 10th October. You will then be contacted with further details of how to take part.
With many thanks to Cambridge Festival of Ideas for supporting this project.
