Rotherham

Exciting news! Yorkshire Day commissioned poem: ‘Our Rotherham’ (by poet Vicky Morris working with Rotherham Young Writers) will be displayed as part of the design for the Women’s Euros in Rotherham this July thanks to Flux Rotherham. We cannot wait to see sections of the large-scale poem winding their way through the streets, parks and hidden corners of Rotherham town. What better way than poetry embedded into the fabric of the world to reflect it back to us. Here’s a shortened film version of the poem put together by the brilliant John Slemenek at Studio Bokehgo.

Our Rotherham was commissioned by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough council
The street art version of this poem is supported by Flux Rotherham @FluxRotherham and @hivesouthyorks as a part of the national Arts Council [@artscouncilofengland] Creative People and Places Programme.

Flux Rotherham is 1 of 39 programmes being developed across England as part of the Creative People and Places programme. Creative People and Places is an Arts Council programme which focuses on parts of the country where involvement in creativity and culture is significantly below the national average. Each project is completely unique to its area and communities, testing how to grow arts provision in ways that are relevant and lasting. Find out more at: www.fluxrotherham.org.uk
