The Long Arc with Robin Walter

12 June @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

£8

In The Long Arc, Robin Walter reads a collection of nature and environmental-themed poems accompanied by music and imagery.

‘The Long Arc’ consists of 3 pieces of writing on environmental themes, accompanied by recorded music and visual images.
‘Arbor Vitae’ is a poetic version of Robin’s book ‘Living With Trees’, with images by Juliet Wimhurst.
‘Cleave’ is a collection of poems that trace our estrangement from nature, our enslavement to the treadmill of ‘progress’, and how we might address this.
‘Invocation’ is an invitation to the four elements, in their benign forms, to come to us and enrich our lives, set to the famous music of Barber’s Adagio.

Robin Walter is a forester and writer living in Dorset. His tree work over the last 30 years has included climbing, felling, management and consultancy. His publications include Living With Trees (Little Toller 2020) and a poetic version of the book published in Evolving The Forest (art.earth 2020). These explore our relationship with trees as a portal to the wider natural world. His poems have been included in Tears in the Fence journal.
