Arts Passing: A poetic response to Stories in the Dark

Arts Passing

It is with great sadness that we mark, the passing of Stories in the Dark
No more bulbs blown, no more visitors thrown
But let us not forget, that it was art, and in the cultural education of Canterbury it thus played its part
Click clock, dull thwack, Discombobulation, nuclear installation
What is it? what do I see?
Tell me what to think – tell me how to be
Art is dead – long live art

-W. Godwin
