Darwin and evolution inspired poetry collection launched

Over the course of the last year, we worked with a group of local young poets, Young Identity, on evolution and Darwin-inspired poetry. This was part of a project funded by the Wellcome Trust. The poets produced fantastic material that explored their own relationships with the subject. The work produced by these poets and other regional partners can be seen on the ‘evolving words’ website.

Check out the fantastic film of one of the poems, ‘Human Caterpillar‘ by Bethany Hermitt, filmed in the museum’s galleries and collections stores.
