Shine A Light

Shine a Light is a Arts Council England funded pilot project examining ideas of masculinity, loyalty, place and identity through poetry. This project was delivered by Jamie Thrasivoulou in Parkside School, Cullingworth over 4 weeks. It culminated in a fire drawing workshop and event as part of the inaugural Keighley Arts and Film Festival in October 2019. Images of Fire Drawings by Steve Rayner.

The students worked with Jamie to create their own work which they performed in front of over 700 people at a lantern parade in Cliffe Castle.

Recordings of the poems can be found here. Thanks to Dean McPhee for his use of the track The Devil’s Knell.
