Art & Words: A Creative Project on Instagram
Fri 27 Aug 2021 to Tue 30 Nov 2021
Take part in this interactive project by writing creatively in response to works of art from National Museum Wales.

Have you ever walked past a painting because it seemed boring? What if you paused, spent time writing and let the words take you on an unexpected journey?

My name is Rachel Carney and I’m a PhD student working with National Museum Cardiff to examine what happens when we write creatively in response to works of art. It is simply about slowing down and letting a different part of your brain take over – the part of your brain that ponders in ways you may not be aware of, translating impressions into words.

Over the last few months I’ve been running creative writing workshops with a group of people from Rhondda Cynon Taff. Each week we have spent time looking at one or two images from the museum’s collection, and writing poems in response. These poems will be posted on Instagram over the next few months and I’d like to invite everyone to take part in the next phase of this project.

We want as many people as possible to respond to the images and poems by writing a poem of their own. Every creative response will be different, and each one will give us a new perspective on the work of art.
