Dr Eóin Flannery, Reader in Irish Literature and Director of the Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre, spoke on the Kat Orman Show on BBC Radio Oxford on Tuesday 3 June about Oxford Brookes Poetry Centre's ongoing creative writing collaboration with the Oxford-based mental health charity, The Archway Foundation. Together with partners from Archway – Louise Longson, and Dance Mania – Tom Cox, Eoin introduced the ways in which the Poetry Centre is contributing to Archway's 'Time to Change: Creative Communication' project. Eoin detailed the community-related outreach history of the Poetry Centre, and outlined how the Centre has provided creative writing workshops for users of the Archway Foundation services across March, April and May of this year. The project continues on 5 July with an Alice-themed Mad Hatter's Tea Party, featuring visual art and creative writing workshops. This will take place at Florence Park Community Centre, Oxford from 1–4pm.
