Whale Arts and Colin McGuire
Push the Boat Out is delighted to work once more with WHALE Arts, a community-led arts charity and social enterprise at the heart of Wester Hailes. Thanks to funding from Awards for All (National Lottery Fund), Push the Boat Out supported a series of creative sessions on poetry and mindfulness, run by poet Colin McGuire.
This exhibition features the poetry-art made by participants during these creative workshops which explored meditation, poetry and everyday life. Held over six consecutive weeks, the sessions combined poetry with mindfulness and imagination in surprising ways, using the breath, the body, objects, art, language, to communicate and embody participants’ emotions and experience.
