Shetland-Fife Poetry & Craft Project - FARLIN

Farlin has been organised by Shetland Arts and Fife Contemporary Art & Craft in collaboration with StAnza: Scotland’s International Poetry Festival.

Farlin: a communal container of herring = a unifying resource of work and nourishment

8 poets and 8 makers from Shetland and Fife will exchange pieces of work: each will then produce a piece (or pieces) in response to the piece they have received.

Each poet will have a partner who is a maker: Fife makers will partner Shetland poets and Shetland makers will partner Fife poets.

The project will provide an opportunity to explore new ideas: to explore your own creativity and the creativity of another artist through communication and by experiencing their work, allowing them to experience yours.

Experience, communication, exploration, exchange and nourishment – a virtual creative community across the seas.

Using post, skype, email, phone and social networking.
