Sarah Taylor Silverwood on initiating The Women’s Honour Award

NEWS : August 10, 2018

This is @corinnenoordenbos taking over the #Multistory Instagram to highlight the launch of my book and exhibition Black Country Lungs. This is Janice. She suffers from #COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). When Multistory invited me to the Black Country, I took the opportunity to explore health issues. Statistics showed that this post- industrial community has more health-related problems than other areas of the UK. I decided to focus on COPD and lung problems. I was curious about the connection between the Black Country and ‘black lungs’. . . The exhibition is now on show @lightwoodshouse until 31 May 2018. The book can be purchased from the Multistory shop. . .

#WorldPoetryDay – we’ll be working with performance poet #EmmaPurshouse on a commission for 18/19 called #TiptonTales Emma will work with local residents to produce a site-specific piece of spoken word theatre with a loose but coherent narrative that will be set and performed in a building / location in #Tipton (one of the six towns in the borough of Sandwell). The history of the building and the people and families who inhabited or frequented the place will be represented as spoken word pieces linked together to represent the diversity of voices in #Sandwell – they will be created by both Emma and artists she collaborates with. Collaboration is one of Emma’s preferred methods of working and she has previously written and performed pieces in this way, including a show which was performed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. . . . . #spokenword #performancepoet #MultistoryArtist #participation #collaboration #community #connected #communitystories #TheMultistoryCollection #6townsofSandwell
