Belfast's newest resident, the Poetry Jukebox, was installed at Crescent Arts Centre a few months ago with a deceptively simple mission: #changethemessage
A new curation arrives at the beginning of April marking twenty years since the signing of the Good Friday Agreement and asking the question.. "What else?" And this is the type of question our post-human narrative likes to interrogate and explore in The Xenophon Project. So we are very delighted that Maeve's poetry fragment, 'The Signal' from our Almanac of Tomorrow piece has been selected to be part of this new curation. Words have power, language carries a resonance far beyond ourselves.
A consensus could not be achieved on whether this was an explosion or an implosion.
The poems in the #GFA20 curation will also become a LabeLLit intervention, part of the arts hub of the Peace & Beyond Conference which is being organised by the Centre for Peace & Democracy, Ulster University & Queen's University Belfast (10-12 April). Our poetry will be an installation of literature designed for conference delegates to take away with them - little thoughts on where the future will take us all.
We are very pleased to announce our new show, Xenophon: From the Beginning, as part of Drogheda Arts Festival, at Droichead Arts Centre.
Featuring artifacts old, new and post-human from The Xenophon Archive, we will be employing sculpture, narrative, animation and technology to explore the interstices between art and science, and the future of the human species.
Entrance is free, everyone is welcome, all are one and details are here.
