At midnight (GMT) on Monday 30 November, Alice Oswald will lead a global, immersive, poetry performance with thanks to Joseph Kay (composer), Estela Merlos and Thomasin Gulgec (dancers), Rocio Chacon (filmmaker), and Kevin Mount (designer).

Part of the Professor of Poetry Lecture Series: participants from 19 countries, and across five continents, have been mailed a poem written by Alice Oswald (Professor of Poetry and APGRD Artist Associate). At midnight on Monday, the participants will step outside, open their envelopes, and recite the poem. Participants are encouraged to respond to the event and share their experience in any format they choose.
