Hornsby Girls High School, 2012
Poet Felicity Plunkett led students of Hornsby Girls' High School on a journey to uncover their own poetry object through The Red Room Company project, The Cabinet of Lost and Found.
In this learning resource students are asked to select a 'talismanic object' which has special meaning to them to use as stimulus for a poem. They are also asked to create a personal cabinet of lost and found, in the form of an anthology of poems. Students are asked to not only compose their own poems, but also collect poems from other writers that are special to them. They also create a group collection, either in the form of a physical cabinet installation, or a published 'collection' of poems.
As part of the workshop experience, Felicity composed a poem for the school, ‘Disappearing Act’, which is published on the Red Room website (or view in playlist above).
