Second Chance: A Double-take in Couplets

From September 2012 until January 2013, Germander was hosted by Second Chance charity shop in Archway, as part of Islington Council's A Million Minutes arts programme.

Her aim was to write a verse a week from her findings - and here are the results, month by month, together with photos and background information:

The project culiminated in a display in Second Chance of all the completed pieces, and a public reading in the shop by Germander, shop staff and volunteers - see photos on this page.

See more info on the A Million Minutes website:

A Million Minutes is a 2-year programme of arts activity and creative exchange in Archway and Finsbury Park, organised by Islington Council and supported by Arts Council England.
