LockDownRenga is a series of real time, online photography workshops to create multi-author photo poems or PhotoRenga.  It is inspired by an ancient form of Japanese poetry, renga, in which sequences of short haiku verses construct complex and profound poems.

LockDownRenga have been supported by the Arts Council of Wales as an experimental programme in response to the COVID crisis. We are working with artists, photographers and arts organisations across Wales and beyond. LockDownRenga workshops have been held with Ffotogallery, Disability Arts Cymru and The Kickplate Project. More are planned…

We are also developing an additional programme to work with vulnerable groups affected by COVID-19, including kidney patients, young carers and youth services.
