Tiny Kind Gestures

29 January 2018

During the summer months of 2016, artist Tess Leak and designer Orlagh O’Brien of Haiku Island Press attended the Renal Unit at Cork University Hospital. Collaborating with 24 patients during dialysis, they created a collection of haiku-inspired poetry. In September 2017, Tess and Orlagh invited seven diverse voices from the town of Skibbereen and surrounding area to read aloud the entire collection of Haiku poems ‘Tiny Kind Gestures’.
