Wise Words

Aims to inspire wonder and encourage curiosity through offering innovative and often unexpected encounters with poetry and storytelling.

Our Mission:

Wise Words reawakens a sense of wonder and encourages people to be curious. We are an arts organisation that works through poetry and storytelling, inviting people to see the world from a different perspective and to take time to pause. Our work is unexpected, intimate and connects strongly with the outdoors, engaging the widest possible audience.

 Why Poetry?

Our hope is for a society within which people are engaged, caring & live their lives purposefully & to the full. We see poetry as more than entertainment. We believe in its ability to act as an agent for change: reaching across differences, inspiring a sense of social responsibility, bearing witness to the diversity and complexity of human experience and helping us to imagine a better world.
