AS A CURATOR

The curation of visual poetry exhibitions is one of Astra's passions. She is the founder and curator of Poem Atlas, a poetry platform that has commissioned over 100 works of visual poetry from UK and international poets as part of a series of innovative online and physical exhibitions. Poem Atlas aims to showcase the best of visual and experimental poetry in the UK and beyond, focussing on the work of poets who explore the performative aspect of tangible poems, and merge poetry and visual art to create unique visual-textual works. In addition to this work, Astra has also assisted in the delivery of several exhibition's at The Poetry Society's Café as part of her role in the organisation since 2018.
