Meadows Community League News
Hi Poetry Lovers,
Please vote for our project and help spread the word among your
networks to vote for our sidewalk poetry project. It's been nominated for an
urban design award for projects that "create vibrant public places and
have left a lasting impression."
We certainly have seen how Poetry Pathways in the Meadows achieves
these goals. There was a terrific sense of community engagement in the project
-- the poems are all from community members and span an age range from 7 to
late 70s. We have seen how walkers stop and read the poems and this promotes
conversation and friendliness. It's a legacy, grass roots community
arts project that promotes literacy and neighbourliness.
Voting is easy -- just click on the link, find the image for our
project and follow the voting directions. edmonton.ca/peopleschoice
Thanks for your continued support!
