Owen Lowery

May 3rd  1.30 - 2.30 : The Mill on the Fleet : £8.00

Former Judo champion Owen Lowery suffered a spinal injury in 1987, became paralysed from the shoulders down and is now dependent on a ventilator to breathe.  Alongside his own transition from able-bodied sports star to disabled poet, he explores themes of transition from climate change, metamorphosis, evolution and migration seen through the lens of poetry and film.

‘Otherwise Unchanged is a remarkable collection, combining technical poise and an expansive intellectual range ... the collection represents a many-faceted journey worth sharing with Lowery from cover to cover.’ (Carol Rumens, The Guardian)
