What did you learn as a child about 'Progress' and what does it mean to you now? In this era of environmental crisis, the word weighs heavy; synonymous with industrial and commercial growth, used as an excuse for clearing and destroying vast tracks of natural ecosystems.
In this poetry workshop with poet Cath Drake, we will ask what meaningful Progress in the Anthropocene could look like? We will read poems and write about ideas of forwards and backwards and discover new meanings of Progress in the context of environmental injustice.
