Not the Same Poet, But Always an Artist consists of exhibitions of drawings and photographs at the Arnolfini, and Southmead Hospital as part of the Fresh Arts Programme, including film showings and workshops for  people living with Stroke, their families and the medical staff  involved in their care. Not the Same Poet, But Always an Artist explores the effects of Aphasia on Hazel Hammond’s work as she rediscovers her artistic practice through drawings, film making and other art forms.

Hazel Hammond has been a poet and an artist for over 40 years. In 2018 she had a stroke and now lives with Aphasia, a changing condition affecting over 350,000 people in the UK affecting ability to speak, write and read. Learning to use words again is tricky for a poet!

Fresh Arts will be holding a workshop for health professionals in association with Not the Same Poet, But Always An Artist.

Held via zoom 1-2pm, please contact Fresh Arts with booking enquiries: fresh.arts[at]
