Well Versed was a project where older people in Livingston worked with poet/performer Rachel McCrum (BBC Poet in Residence 2015) and filmmaker Alastair Cook (Filmpoem) to explore the crossover between poetry and film, when word meets image. On this page you can see the films created during the project. The films were all edited by Alastair Cook.

Well Versed was supported by Digital Scotland. With thanks to West Lothian Council, Craigshill Good Neighbour Network and Generation Arts.
