Viewpoint invites 12 community groups to document and celebrate life in Fenland.

Viewpoint aims to use mobile phones to publish creative writing generated by local communities and generate new visual art works to develop a sense of place and civic pride. With viewpoint we hope to build a living biography of Fenland that comes alive as readers move through the towns and villages using their mobile phones to both access poems as well as add to the archive. People who live and work in Fenland will help generate the poems during creative writing workshops with Ann and Peter Sansom from the Poetry Business.

There will be 12 viewpoint sites (1 for each group) which will range from skate parks to bus stops with each poem having its own keyword. By sending this keyword as a text message readers will receive a free short SMS text poem. The information will be relevant to the nature of each site i.e. readers waiting to pick up their child from school will be able to read about their memories of childhood, the school or aspects of parenthood.

As well as signage at each site each point will also display an artwork inspired by the poem also generated by the group with the help of a visual artists. This can be a traditional artwork but could take any forms such as flowerbeds or murals.

In addition a 24 hour audio service will be built to enable anyone to access local oral history interviews and leave their own audio messages again while ‘onsite’.

How to get involved

If you are based in Fenland and have a minimum of 10 people in your group who can take part in the creative sessions call now. We only have a few places left and are working on a first come first served basis and can be scheduled for evenings, weekends, during the day – whatever suits you. Remember you don’t need a mobile phone to take part!

After the creative writing workshops are completed we will bring in an artist to suit the needs of the group to work on ways to create an artwork about life in Fenland. Workshops are scheduled to take place this summer and the workshop venues and sites for the artwork will be chosen with the help of each group.

To discuss any aspect of the project please contact Lisa Roberts – Viewpoint Project manager on 07779649027 or lisa@blinkmedia.org
