Cultural Belongings: an exhibition of the poetry of Gerald Dawe

Linen Hall Library 17 Donegall Square North, Belfast

Gerald Dawe celebrates the art of living in places. Whether the Belfast of the 1960s, the anxious territories of the 1970s and 1980s, or the emergent Irelands north and south of recent decades, his writing expresses the potency of memory to shape and sustain.
