Poem Atlas is an event series and network for individuals who are interested in object poetry and neo-futurist poetics. This project 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. This event series is curated by Astra Papachristodoulou. Visit the Poem Atlas website for more!
