Poetry coming to public spaces in Toronto
A new project launched in collaboration with the City of Toronto and the Toronto Public Library will bring poetry to public spaces around the city.
Poetry is Public is Poetry will be displaying poetry by 34 writers, including Margaret Atwood, Michael Ondaatje, Anne Michaels. The first six panels were unveiled last week at the Toronto Reference Library.
"This project seeks to counterpoint, regenerate and re-engage in the communal in a way that only poetry can," said City of Toronto Poet Laureate Dionne Brand. "Committing verses tangibly to the public space will enrich the interior life of the citizens."
A list of poets and bios can be found on the Poetry is Public is Poetry website.
