THE TENTH Poems For Patience initiative will be launched tomorrow at 11am on the Arts Corridor, off the main foyer, of University Hospital Galway.
The event, part of Cúirt, will see poet Matthew Sweeney introduce the 21 poems he has selected, which will be circulated throughout the waiting areas of UHG and Merlin Park University Hospital. For the duration of the festival, the poems will be on display on the Art Corridor.
The lauch will also hear the winner of the Galway University Hospitals Arts Trust poetry competition Jane Clarke read her poem ‘The River’. There will also be the launch of This Never Happened, a collection of poems and stories by patients, staff, and visitors to GUH, edited and introduced by Kevin Higgins.
All are welcome.
