Atomic Poems


During the first year’s delivery of This Girl Codes (2020), our Curiosity Boxes supported teachers and children of key workers during lockdown, and Atomic Poems engaged people in local heritage – celebrating the work of 17th century writer and scientist Margaret Cavendish – through remote online workshops creating poetry through code. After the workshop, lead artist Cora Glasser created a temporary installation at Bolsover Castle, working with our heritage partner English Heritage. You can also view the Atomic Poems Book here
