Disappear Here began back in 2015 when a few Coventry artists (Adam Steiner, Brian Harley and Alan van Widjgerden) produced a collaborative poetry film of a local poet, Antony Owen.
LAUNCH – Screening – Thursday - 16/3/2017 @ The Box - Fargo - Coventry - CV1 5ED
Following this, we applied for Arts Council England funding to produce a series of 27 poetry films, working with 9 x writers and 9 x film-makers.
In order to meet match-funding requirements for the grant, we applied for support from Coventry City Council small arts grants and Silhouette Press.
We then launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise £1000 in order to express support for the project and after exceeding the target (by £50!) built the Disappear Here website and opened the project for applications.
