PAST EVENT - Recovery Poems to visit Elwick Place

How do we commemorate what’s been lost as we start to take tentative steps out of lockdown? What do we want to hold onto and grow? What positive changes can we make to society and the natural environment as we recover from the pandemic?

These are the questions posed to the public through a creative art installation coming to Ashford this summer.

Created by renowned artists Robert Montgomery and Deanna Rodger, the Recovery Poem is a giant light poem that will visit several public spaces in Ashford throughout July and August, inspiring people to reflect and take stock of all that has happened over the last 18 months.

As Ashford starts to look to the future and restrictions ease, the poem will form part of a set of mini events in and around Ashford town centre hosted by Loveashford to mark the start of a new chapter.

Where can I see the Recovery Poem?

  • August 14 – Hubert Fountain, Victoria Park (1-4pm) and Elwick Place (5-8pm)

Complementing the arrival of the Recovery Poem will be the initiation of the Fabric of Ashford, a community-based textile project that will see the town centre beautifully decorated over the late summer months and into early autumn.

August 14th
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
