poetry underfoot

July 3, 2017

Here’s another addition to the poetry walk file: Poetry Pathways in the Meadows in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Coordinated by artists Agnieszka Matejko and Jannie Edwards, with a lot of help from the local community, this summer marks the third in a four-part poetry installation.

Supported and encouraged by more than 50 poetry workshops, a local call for “original, unpublished, short (4 lines or less, untitled) uplifting poems” yielded more than 2000 submissions from poets of all ages and levels of experience. Sited near schools and playgrounds, the short poems are sandblasted into the sidewalk, with color added. The project was funded by donations and a Community Initiatives Program grant from Alberta Culture and Tourism.
