I am delighted to be co-curating the poetry film programme for Mix Conference 2017 at Bath Spa University, 10-12 July 2017.
After the success of the last three MIX conferences, MIX 2017 returns to Bath Spa University’s Newton Park Campus. Bath Spa University is the UK’s foremost provider of creative writing programmes at undergraduate, masters and PhD level and MIX is well-established as an innovative forum for the discussion and exploration of writing and technology. MIX has attracted an international cohort of contributors from the UK, Australia, and Europe as well as North and South America. MIX is now situated within the recently created international research centres, Making Books: Creativity, Print Culture and the Digital, and the Media Convergence Research Centre.
The themes for this year’s conference are revolutions, regenerations, reflections. We would like to encourage artists/poets and digital writers to submit poetry films/ film poems/ video poetry to be screened during MIX in our Viewing Theatre at Newton Park campus.
The films will be selected and curated by Lucy English, Reader in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University, and Zata Banks, founder of PoetryFilm research art project https://poetryfilm.org
