Lost in Transmission

Event Date: 4 November 2017

Event Category: Family Event

In this ecopoetry workshop we will explore the ash dieback transmission process. Drawing on scientific research and journalism on the subject, we’ll make new poems from existing texts. In doing so, we will learn about the changes to rural and urban landscapes that ash dieback will bring, and discover the pushes and pulls (both natural and cultural) that drive its spread. We’ll also consider how the disease is likely to impact the ash trees in Folkestone’s own urban environment.

This event part of The Ash Project is taking place in conjunction with the Urban Room and the Folkestone Triennial Fringe. 

The walk will be lead by Chris Poundwhite, find out more about Chris’s ecopoetry courses & workshops at

Duration: approx 2 hours
