Here is the full poem written and read by Ruby Dine who was Rocket's Poet in Residence during the recent exhibition Work In Progress:Towards Inclusion. The 7 week ACE supported exhibition opened March 6th for 1 week before the COVID 19 pandemic lockdown closed the gallery at Phoenix Art Space.
We are so grateful to Ruby, with support of Rachel Norwood, for creating this response to the exhibition which enables us to keep Work In Progress alive during lockdown.
