No Go Down!

Here’s the link to the first shanty of Five Beacons of Light –  the epic choral piece I’m writing with composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad about the climate emergency. It’s sung by the Lower School Choir of Albyn School, Aberdeen.  I spent a week working with students there devising movement and a ‘sea of words’ and was blown away by their creative energy and passion. 

‘Written Portraits’ poetry residency

Associate artist on ‘People Like You’ – a research study on personalisation in NHS led by Goldsmiths, Imperial and Warwick Universities, funded by Wellcome Trust: 
‘The purpose of Di Sherlock’s poetry residency is to understand how visitors to Maggie’s West London and hospital staff discuss their experiences and express their identities in individual/group conversations. Her poetic practice involves conversations that result in ‘Written Portraits’. The ‘portraits’ are transactional – they are gifted back and discussed with participants and where appropriate the poem reworked until all sides are happy. Through this process we are interested in understanding the wider contexts of care, medicine, and participation.’
