Mudlarking: How foraging on the foreshore can reveal stories from the past

ABOUT
Nicola White is a British ‘Mudlark’ and artist whose work is inspired by found objects old and new picked up on her walks along the Thames foreshore. At low tide, many fragments of London’s rich and ancient history are revealed along the banks of the river. One of her other pastimes is hunting for messages in bottles and she now has quite a collection! Nicola will share the stories of some of her most interesting finds as well as some of her messages in bottles. Learn more at www.tidelineart.com.

David Hassler · Community poems and building a poetic narration for film

ABOUT
David Hassler directs the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State University. In 2009, he co-founded Traveling Stanzas, a community arts project which creates illustrations in response to poems generated from community workshops in schools, healthcare facilities, libraries, senior centers, and veterans’ organizations. David Hassler will lead a writing workshop inspired by Ellen Bass’s poem, “Ode to the Fish.” As a poetic form, “odes” are praise poems that celebrate a person, place, or thing. Hassler will lead a discussion of Bass’s poem and generate writing exercises to help participants create their own praise poems to the ocean that can then be placed on the Here on Earth map.
