SIREN POETS FINALE - WATCH NOW
Filmed live at the Watershed, Cape Farewell's HQ in Sydling St Nicholas, the artists come together for the final time to celebrate, publically share and entertain us with the work they have created throughout the Siren Poets Project.
Siren Poets conjured a conversation from the ashes which were beginning to settle after the first few turbulent months of the Covid19 pandemic. Through our digital platforms they listened, felt, connected, created and shared new work underpinned by the climate emergency challenge, the ongoing crisis that now runs parallel with the pandemic.
Written collaboratively by Shagufta Iqbal, Peter Bearder, Liv Torc and Chris White, we present SIRENS, an evocative poem to launch this project and give a taste of what's to come.
Life in Plastic is an ongoing (by which we mean unfinished) project where Chris White talks to a bunch of people (including himself) about their the plastic in their life.
The first of three films created during his time as a Siren Poet with Cape Farewell, Pete (The Temp) Bearder launches this song in Gratitude to Gaia, with sublime vocals from Florence Pardoe.

As Cape Farewell’s emergency cultural response to the pandemic and with support from Arts Council England, the Siren Poets project will be a highly interactive, accessible and collaborative process in which absolutely anybody is welcome. By addressing human-induced environmental impact, our artists will inspire the poet in us all and show how through art, we can help generate a sustainable cultural shift.
