THE THINGS BETWEEN US book launch and celebration

On May 1st we held a book launch and celebration to mark the next stage of Living Words’ development. We saw an extract of Susanna’s show WEAVE; heard from chair of Trustess Joe Moran about Living Words’ wants and intentions; listened to Professor Paul M. Camic discuss the poems as evidence for more arts in health practice; witnessed Julie Carroll, whose father Geoff was a participant in a Living Words residency, speak movingly about the work from her experience – we loved how she’d thought Susanna was a ‘crackpot’ until she received her father’s book and began reading it with him; launched our new anthology THE THINGS BETWEEN US, with readings by Susanna, Myra Barrs and Philip Cowell; and finally Phillip united us all with a toast!  You can find out more and buy THE THINGS BETWEEN US by clicking here.  Contact us for more info!  Here are some pics, taken by the fabulous photographer and intermedia artist Zbigniew Tomasz Kotkiewicz.  With thanks to our hosts Arts Admin and Toynbee Studios
