AN ODE TO BULWELL

Fun creative writing just for you!


We're exploring the next exciting stage of Pots, Pits and People, a project in partnership with everyone in Bulwell. Whether you’re 3yrs or 103yrs, from Aston Drive to Aspen Road, Seller’s wood Drive to Squires Avenue, we need your help!



WE NEED YOUR HELP…


From schools to shops, notes through letter and email boxes, right across the town, help spread the word to make sure as many Bulwellians as possible join in to create an Ode to Bulwell celebrating the rich history of life then and now, to shout from the rooftops of the future!



HOW TO JOIN IN…


In Zoom Company Lockdown has made us more local and that's no bad thing. Let's celebrate what surrounds us and wrangle some words to create a poetic exploration of this place - Bulwell. Sign up to a friendly free 90 minute creative writing zoom session on Tuesday 1st December 11am-12.30pm To book a place please Please click the link https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/newperspectives/e-aqqokl



Under your own steam


Complete the sentences with as many words as you want:


I come from a place where…


In Bulwell, you can see…hear….feel…


People know Bulwell mostly as/for…


But to me, Bulwell is…


Bulwell’s past is full of…


Its future could be…



There's no right way of doing this, it could be a list of thoughts, full sentences of feelings or a drawing. You can submit this by email, on paper, or by filming a short clip on your mobile of yourself reading your words out loud on your phone, (just make sure that background noise is kept to a minimum, the sound is recording and your device is landscape) or recording a short voice note from your phone.


Please send all written, filmed or recorded contributions by no later than 6 December to Jayne Williams by emailing jayne@newperspectives.co.uk



WHAT HAPPENS NEXT…


New Perspectives Theatre Company will conjure all your wonderful words together to create an inspirational short film about Bulwell revealing an Ode to Bulwell. Thanks to you and support from Heritage Lottery Fund, together we have unearthed so many brilliant Bulwell stories. We’ll share the film with you all, the world and our funders, to act as a celebration of the project so far and to help raise funds to develop Pots, Pits and People into a three year celebration of Bulwell’s rich heritage.
