In a highly-enjoyable evening hosted by the Bristol Poetry Institute (in association with the Poetry Can and Redcliffe Press), Bristol poets came together to respond to art in the city, and to celebrate the launch of The Echoing Gallery, as part of the Bristol Poetry Festival. The evening, held at the Orangery, Goldney Hall, featured readings from many of the contributors, with ekphrastic musical interludes from Helen Jenner and Thom-Thomas Watkins of Hat in Hand, and a slideshow of the artworks. Edited by Rachael Boast (Forward Poetry Prize Winner 2011 for the Best First Collection), The Echoing Gallery features thirty-three of the finest contemporary poets living in or associated with Bristol, both familiar names – Philip Gross, Helen Dunmore, Jane Griffiths, to take just three – and up and coming new voices, each specially commissioned to write a response to the city’s wide-ranging art in public spaces and galleries.
