VOICED – James Nixon

August 5th 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.

James Nixon will be the featured artist throughout the month of July.

Nixon has an MA Creative Writing from Royal Holloway, University of London.

He was the RHUL Emerging Writer Fellow at Cove Park in May 2015 and his poetry features in AmbitNeon and The Cadaverine.
