Submissions invited for ‘Poetry Is’

‘Poetry Is’ is a project undertaken in conjunction with the Deal Festival of Music and the Arts 2015.
The essence of this project is not just poetry as a discipline,
but poetry as a life-view: expressed artistically.
The whole world talks poetry; it is only we who, with elaborate ingenuity
manage to talk prose.
(G.K. Chesterton)

The Book
The heart of the project is a unique book, 12” Square, entitled POETRY IS
to be displayed on a lectern at the centre of an exhibition.
Each double page spread will be the unique work of an artist, writer, poet or a collaboration.
There will be no commercial aspect to the Poetry Is Book.
Its existence is to show that monetary value is not the only criteria for creative expression.
There are no fees for inclusion nor fees paid.
The book will not be sold, but given to an appropriate body, with the
proviso that, if it changes hands, it will again be given not sold.
For any questions please email christiandada@hotmail.co.uk

This is a well established event that has been happening over the past 9 years for artists in and around Deal organised by SEAS (South East ArtistS), a local art group.

It’s a unique opportunity to sell, show and talk about your work to the public and to make contact with other local artists

Also this year we are also offering a free exhibition/selling place for an up and coming young artist at our Astor Theatre event. At this event last year we had 300 visitors and it would be an excellent venue for a young artist to display their work.
