Dumblove Encounters presents Folk/Tale

Polly Checkland Harding

We went to take part in Dumblove Encounters’ Folk/Tale as part of the Everything Everything Chaos to Order residency.

For an hour each day, uniformed Dumblove writers will be manning the library’s lifts. Those who step inside will experience unique, 60 second encounters between floors – from these, Dumblove will piece together a collaborative story, grown organically from the people who visit the library. 11am-12pm daily. Library lifts. Free, but booking is advised.
