An online talk with poet Harriet Tarlo and artist Judith Tucker about their recent project and exhibition 'Hideaway: painting and poetry from the saltmarsh'.

Featuring creative work from the Humberston Fitties and insights into working with archival materials and the community. Tarlo and Tucker’s creative work on the Fitties includes large-scale paintings and poems which contextualise the Fitties in the wider marsh and beach; paintings of individual chalets and an extensive series of the site at night; “name game” poems based on the names inhabitants give their beloved chalets which evoke seaside associations, and “people poems” based on extended interviews with people who live on and visit the Fitties. This project is funded by the Arts Council England
