Poetry Light Night

In collaboration with Off The Shelf Festival of Words and Ruskin Sheffield, Word Life ran a poetry light night to celebrate the writings of celebrated philanthropist, social thinker and art collector John Ruskin. Word Life commissioned two poets, Rommi Smith and Tony Walsh to create original poems from their interpretations of Ruskin’s writings. Filmmakers Annie Watson and Rob Speranza were the commissioned to turn these poems into film poems which were projected onto the frontage of the Upper Chapel in Sheffield.
