In this interactive workshop, poetic scientist Dr. Sam Illingworth will lead a tour around the CFCCA galleries and help you to create your own poetry inspired by our ‘Aquatopia’ exhibition. No previous poetic experience required, just an open mind!

Dr. Sam Illingworth is a Senior Lecturer in Science Communication at Manchester Metropolitan University. His research involves using poetry to give a voice to the under-served and the under-valued. As well as being a published author, Sam has also performed his poetry and run workshops all over the world.
