Cut Out

A film-poem that showcases poetry produced by members of the People Focused Group (PFG) in Doncaster, England.

Cut | Out was a collaboration between Doncaster writer and creative writing facilitator Michéle Beck and Doncaster poet and filmmaker Dan Ryder. Michéle and Dan believe that everybody has a voice and the ability to create.

The PFG is made up of people who live in Doncaster and who have current or previous lived experience of mental ill health. Michéle runs a regular community creative writing group at the PFG in Intake, Doncaster.

This project was supported by Adult, Family & Community Learning at Doncaster Council. Michéle and Dan are available for future commissions and projects.
