Teignmouth Poetry Festival Events & Fringe Events at TAAG

We have established a reputation for opening our festivals with events which are lively and distinctly different. For 2018 we begin with a delightful mix of poetry from writers with completely different styles. Uniting them is the ability to alternate or blend their written work with music which perfectly matches the mood.

Friday 16th March

Reading - Art and Poetry -  'Journeys' - TAAG 4:00pm to 5:00pm

This event is at TAAG

Over the last six months an invited group of visual artists and poets have been working together on a theme of ‘Journeys’. The result is a fascinating blend of new artwork (both 2D and 3D) and poetry which is inspired by – or has inspired – those visual exhibits. The exhibition, curated by Graham Burchell, occupies both of TAAG’s galleries. This informal reading, within spaces which remain open to the public, features most of the poets involved, and will itself be a journey, moving around those spaces, confronting or conversing with artworks as we come to them.
