  • Joanna Moorhead - Surreal Spaces - The Life and Art of Leonora Carrington

    Leonora Carrington (1917- 2011) is now considered to be in the vanguard, not only in histories of women artists but also Surrealism. Her themes - feminism, ecology, the interconnectedness of everything – have never been so on trend. In this remarkable book, Joanna Moorhead traces Carrington’s footsteps, vividly exploring her life and art, loves and friendships as she takes us on a journey through pivotal locations across Britain, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, the US and finally Mexico where Leonora lived for more than 60 years.

This could be in the form of poetry, spoken word, storytelling, monologue, rap, song or even comedy - however they feel they can best express themselves. This is the culmination of the workshops where the young people will perform their pieces to a live audience at Bridport Literary Festival.
