2012: A Snapshot

2012: A Snapshot is the poem created from REPRESENT - our crowd-sourcing poetry project for Arts in Parliament.

Members of the public were asked to contribute lines of poetry, lyrics or just words about democratic engagement and what it means to live in the UK in 2012. 

Poet and performer Inua Ellams brought together these responses to create a poem which was then made into this film.  The film was shown during Arts in Parliament in August 2012. 

This was a partnership project between Arts in Parliament, Apples & Snakes and Inua Ellams. The film was produced by Stitchthat.
