Have you been inspired by Allen Ginsberg’s Howl? Then the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival wants to hear from you.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of Ginsberg’s epic poem, now regarded as one of the 20th century’s greatest works of American literature. As part of Out of Sight, Out of Mind, the ambitious, large scale art exhibition that has become a key event in the SMHAFF programme, Mark Gould is looking to gather together a set of visual responses to Howl by different artists.

If you or anyone you know is interested in this project, please contact Mark.

You can also follow the Howl project as it develops on Facebook.

Listen to Allen Ginsberg reading Howl in Chicago in January 1959 here.
