Natural World Commissions

As part of the Spring 2021 Programme, we are delighted to present four brand new commissions on the theme of the natural world, from poets Kim Moore, Jason Allen-Paisant, 2019 ILF Apprentice Poet-In-Residence Shash Trevett and novelist Angela Readman.

View the commissioned pieces and further information about the artists below. We hope you’ll discover new writing and artists to enjoy, inspire and provoke!


We are also delighted to showcase six micro-commissions from Yorkshire artists working a range of art forms, from poetry and spoken word to soundscapes and experimental film responding in some form to the theme of ‘the natural world’.
