Wednesday 8 May saw the finale of the Thresholds project, in which ten leading poets took up residence within Cambridge University museums and collections, working with targeted young people’s groups. The finale event included readings of the new poems inspired by the collections, and a short film charting the experiences of the young people involved in the project. I discussed my work at the Scott Polar Museum and read my commissioned poem, 'Fox Collar' at the event.
