“Meet the Artists” event, Saturday 26th June 2021

“Meet the Artists” event happened outside if Central Methadist Hall on Saturday 26th June, between 10-1. All five Artists were in attendance and offered activities for passers by, attenders as well as the Staff from the hall and church.

Emilie Lauren Jones – Poet

Emilie created Haiku for people about a place of significance. A haiku is traditionally a Japanese poem consisting of three short lines that do not rhyme. The origins of haiku poems can be traced back as far as the 9th century. She will be running workshops , a Poetry and storytelling Caberet, as well as creating videos and montages later in the year.
