Green Poems for a Blue Planet Exhibition

01/4/2015

It’s exciting starting the year as the Poet in Residence for Bristol 2015 European Green Capital. If you keep your green eyes peeled – you’ll see me around on my amazingly green Pashley bicycle delivering poems to greenies, non-greenies and inbetweenies everywhere!

But other great news is that we have a fantastic exhibition of the poetry and illustrations:Tuesday 13th -Saturday 31st January: Exhibition ‘Green Poems for a Blue Planet’ poems by Martin Kiszko with illustrations by Nick Park. The Plough Arts Centre 9-11 Fore Street, Great Torrington, Devon EX38 8HQ Telephone: 01805 624624 mail@theploughartscentre.org.uk

‘We are delighted to host this exhibition of the poems and illustrations from the book ‘Green Poems for a Blue Planet’. The poems were written by Martin Kiszko, the UK’s Green Poet, with illustrations by Nick Park, creator of ‘Wallace and Gromit’. Martin’s eco- comical poetry for children and families aim to help a new generation understand and grasp the challenges ahead and will hopefully encourage their search for solutions that can create a sustainable environment for all. To accompany the exhibition, Martin will be performing his poems to local schoolchildren and the poems and illustrations will provide the inspiration for their own work which will be exhibited here in March.’

See you there. Green gratitude!
