Online Text Art Project – Hidden

Arcadea launched a unique online text art project on the theme of ‘Hidden’ reflecting the hidden history of Disabled people and the continuing relative invisibility of our cultural identities. A national poetry competition was held to select a 16-line poem on the theme of ‘Hidden’, which was ‘hidden’ and linked, two lines at a time on the web sites of eight participating ‘mainstream’ arts venues and cultural organisations in the North East of England until the reader finds the complete poem on Arcadea’s website.

The selected poem was ‘The Bell Ringer’ by Ann Torode.
