Contemporary poetry & songs about Essex

To Initiate the Memory Maps project a group of contemporary song writers and poets were asked to begin the process of writing about Essex. They have responded to different works and images in a range of media: drawings, watercolours, oil sketches and portraits, as well as embroideries and wall-paper, clothes, silverware and carvings. It is hoped that they will inspire you to start making your own memory maps.
