About the project
Poet and Playwright Louise Wallwein MBE, creator of Tide Whisperer was excited to meet with a group of Tenby pupils at Greenhill School to conduct a poetry workshop. To encourage them to unleash their creativity by connecting to their senses, we took them to South Beach in Tenby where they enjoyed the sensory delights that the beach has to offer.
One of Louise’s strongest memories of her time volunteering in Greece at the height of the migrant crisis was the unifying power of a game of football that was played on the beach, between the local Greek and refugee children. The pupils at Greenhill enjoyed recreating this memory for Louise and subsequently went on to star in Tide Whisperer, again reproducing this scene of new friendships springing to life.
