An echolocation from our Poetics team
“This is an echolocation in the darkness of 2023 in the hope that that there may be something in what we’re doing that will strike a chord.” – Martin Shaw
Alice Oswald, Martin Shaw and Valentin Gerlier all teach on our MA Poetics of Imagination, the first postgraduate degree to launch our revived arts education programme here at Dartington three years ago. The programme continues to go from strength, continually morphing and consolidating as it learns from as well as teaches our students in that magic space between myth, poetry and human experience.
In this podcast, Alice, Martin and Valentin explore the “creation myth” of the course itself, and go on to explore what each of them bring to the teaching, as well
“There’s a lot that’s unexpected and unboxable about Dartington which is why people really need to come here.” – Alice Oswald
