Second First Words

Second ‘First Words in Dalston’ was performed on National Poetry Day, 7 October 2021 in Dalston Square, east London.

Four new audio works were premiered that incorporated the recordings of first sentences created by local people from publications in the Dalston CLR James Library by Duncan Chapman, composer/sound artist/musician, Hilary Sturt & Ian Pressland, creative musicians, and Fiona Horigan, multi-media artist.

The project was conceived and curated by artists Mike Abrahams & Francesca Giuliano.
