Temperature life stories: Feeling the heat

Experiencing a changing climate through stories, poetry and data

We all feel the heat, but how do our personal experiences and circumstances affect what we feel? Join the Brigstow Institute at the University of Bristol to create an online exhibition exploring our personal temperature life stories through poetry and data. Poetry workshops, led by Bristol City Poet Caleb Parkin, will guide you through telling your story of how you feel the heat and the temperatures extremes you have lived through.

Workshop details

No previous poetry experience is required! Workshops will be blended, hosted both virtually and in-person at Windmill Hill City Farm, on Thursday 2nd, 9th and 23rd September (10.30-13.00 each day). You can attend in a way that is safe and comfortable for you. There will be up to 12 participants in-person.

Participants are expected to attend all 3 workshops, and will be paid £50 per session and lunch (or food vouchers for online participants) will be provided. We have a limited budget to cover childcare, please contact us for further information.
