Henningham Family Press return to the Urban Village Fete to present a Pop-out DNA Poetry Game. Visitors will use the same body-building rules that DNA uses to build a chain of visual poetry. Just like a human body is built through the writing and reading of base-pairs, solidarity in a body of people is made through our arts and language. We will guide you through the simple steps, chance and basic word pairings that enable people of all abilities to write poetry as part of a group.

The aim was to create a resource using inspirations that the children might not have got to hear about until university – and that’s if they got lucky.
