we’ve got a lot to be excited about right now at electric angel with some lovely design projects and public art commissions arriving from lincolnshire up to the lake district, but what’s promising to make us a bit giddy (and a tad nervous) this week is more local – the trail of hidden words.
charlotte has passion for putting words into the physical world, taking excerpts from poems and books and placing them in context. it’s one of the reasons she seemed such a good fit to join electric angel when james emigrated last year. this passion led her to apply to ideas tap who fund exciting creative projects by young people with her idea of using poetry and song lyrics by younger scarborough residents in one of scarborough’s public gardens.
saturday’s event is the culmination of this idea when the italian gardens on scarborough’s south cliff will be transformed at dusk with words and lights from local writers jamie mcgarry (founder of valley press), lee simpson & martin hughes (from band ‘everyone an army‘), ben sullivan (from ‘lazlo‘) and james koppert (rapper and founder of scarborough hip hip school.)
the event is free and takes place between 7.30-9.30. it’s suitable for all ages and has disabled access. head for the clocktower on the esplanade and you’ll find us.
