Last week Riddel's Warehouse in Belfast's city centre was re-configured as the arts fringe space at the Peace and Beyond Conference. Poetry Jukebox was in residence both in a Label Lit incarnation and as a sound installation.
A real highlights was seeing the thought-provoking messages left by visitors and writers from around the world and across the city, hanging side by side with our own micro-poems. Another was watching the film 'The Grappling Hook' made by Raymond Watson who physically scaled one of the city's peace walls, "escaping" from one ideological prison o ly to find himself in an opposite but equal prison on the otherside. A timely reminder of what unites - as well as divides - us, twenty years on from the Good Friday Agreement.
