It was a real pleasure to work with the Thurmaston Action Group, Roundhill High School, people at the Thurmaston Carnival and others to walk with, talk with and write haiku with. None of it would have been possible without artist Jemma Bagley of Charnwood Arts whose enthusiasm and skills are unbounded!
Here are some more excerpts from this small but beautiful book. With a psychogeography, or as I prefer now to think of it, a ‘splacist’ approach central to the process the community itself is at its heart and they after the first walk designed the next walks themselves with Jemma and shared their findings and feelings as phrases, fragments and haiku poems.
