Inscribe-supported writer and performer Adam Lowe joins Presence, a multi-media project in the North-East England funded by Arts Council England. Coordinated by identity on tyne, Presence has developed out of a First World War project, Beyond the Western Front, which researched the contribution of Black, Asian and ethnic minorities in the First World War.
Presence aims to involve seven commissions for BAME writers within the northern region of the UK, to utilise primary research to create original poetry. Working with partners within the region and/or independently, the writers will create one piece of poetry that will be audio recorded to accompany an interactive installation of voices. At the same time of the recording taking place, the writers will be photographed by Dawn Felicia Knox. These portraits will form part of the final exhibition along with the audio recordings.
