VOICED – David Nash

June 17th 2017, Phytology, Bethnal Green Nature Reserve

In the summer of 2015, artists Lucía Montero and Duncan Robertson commissioned six writers to develop original text inspired by this wild piece of land called the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve.

The Voiced project took the form of a traditional artist residency, providing a space for writers to explore the cultural heritage of this part of East London through song and spoken text.

David Nash will be the featured artist throughout the month of May.
