Emergency Exit Arts, Robert Montgomery & Deanna Rodger

Recovery Poems

Monday 17 - Sunday 23 May

Norwich City Centre


Who have we lost? What do we need to commemorate and how?  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?

Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) presents the Recovery Poems. Through talking and listening to communities, artists Robert Montgomery and Deanna Rodger have created an inspiring light poem that will visit public spaces as a backdrop for workshops, performances and reflections. Citizens can come together to respond to loss and the building of better communities as we start to emerge from the pandemic.

Find out the exact location and timing of the poem closer to the Festival.

Recovery Poems is a partnership project between Without Walls, Emergency Exit Arts, 101 Outdoor Arts, Robert Montgomery, Deanna Rodger, Thatcham Town Council.

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
