Poetry Take Over Day – Raising the Flag – Lubaina Himid

Poetry Take Over Day – Raising the Flag – Lubaina Himid banner image

A twelve-week programme of activities accompanies Lubaina Himid’s Our Kisses are Petals exhibition. The programme celebrates the raising of the flag on BALTIC’s exterior West face each Sunday at 11am with events and happenings on Baltic Square from community groups, musicians, artists and performers.

You’re invited to explore a poem that has been a friend to you in conversation with members of The Poetry Exchange team. The Poetry Exchange explores the idea of poems as friends. Through conversations, events and a podcast, the team gather and share connections between people and poems. In return you’ll receive a gift: a unique recording of a chosen poem, inspired by conversation and your thoughts and feelings about the poem.
