Paths Unseen project
Paths Unseen shows how poetry can be a shared social activity. Performance poet Keely Mills engaged with many individuals and groups in the local community. She enabled them to write or tell their own stories, and share their work in their own voices.
Local folklore and history
Inspiration has also been drawn from local folklore, encouraging museum audiences to consider art as a medium for rediscovering local history. Paths Unseen project has been funded by Arts Council England.
