    Poetry
    We can all agree - poetry is going through a 'boom' time with recent sales figures topping any previous statistics in the UK. Some have attributed this to a new generation of innovative poets and also to its ability to find new followers through using social media and video. Exciting times. Watch this space!

    Looking at craftspeople and designers who make their own work for the market, this award represents the first of three awards in the Materials Evolution Series . Social Design and Materials Innovation will feature in year two and three.

    Nominations are secured from experts in each area. The shortlist will be announced in October along with various public events to showcase the shortlist in some categories.

  • Tuesday 8 May 2018, 7.30pm, Cafe Oto, London.

    Ingrid Laubrock's Anti-House 4 consists of New York City-based musicians who have all made a huge impact as composers, performers and improvisers in their own right. It’s a cast of innovative performers who are specialized in experimental music and constantly look for fresh avenues to create truly new music.

    The group's quicksilver-like and imaginative blend of strong individual voices with Laubrock's compositions makes for a thrilling listening experience. The compositions straddle the boundaries of improvisation, new music and avant- jazz. Between them, the musicians have performed with Anthony Braxton, Jason Moran, Craig Taborn, Tim Berne, Bill Frisell, Paul Motian and many others.
