Finding Blake has been documenting the creation of the new ledger stone for William Blake, from the stone being quarried in Portland, through the process of letter cutting, to the ceremony of unveiling at Bunhill Fields. The screening will show how the project is bringing Blake to life in the current time. The project team have interviewed a range of scholars and creatives who have been influenced by Blake.
