Inspired by the Rugby League World Cup strapline “The Power of Together” artist and poet Robert Montgomery has joined forces with Emergency Exit Arts and eight leading poets, to create four, striking, double-sided light poems. ‘The Power of Poetry’ has been created in collaboration with poets Malika Booker, Vicky Foster, Jackie Kay, Zaffar Kunial, Sinéad Morrissey, Jacob Polley, Shane Rhodes and Louise Wallwein.
The poems will journey across the North of England stopping off at locations in and around Rugby League World Cup host cities, from civic squares, to stadiums, libraries to local rugby league clubs. Keep an eye out for the poems in Hull.
