Paths Unseen project
 
Paths Unseen shows how poetry can be a shared sociable activity. Over the past 18 months performance poet Keely Mills and illustrator Jef Winter have engaged with many individuals and groups from across the local community enabling them to write, tell their own stories and share their work in their own voices.
Inspiration has also come from local folklore, encouraging museum audiences to consider art as a medium for rediscovering local history.
The exhibition is at Epping Forest District Museum until 30 September 2017.
Paths Unseen project has been funded by Arts Council England.
