Would you like to be part of an exhibition inspired by Staffordshire & the poems in the county’s collection?
The recent launch of the Staffordshire Poetry Collection was complemented by an exhibition of photographs, displayed alongside the poems that inspired them, by photographer & poet Dawn Jutton. The exhibition toured to Stafford libraries.
