Collingwood Sidewalk Poetry Project

Twenty-eight poems were selected by jury for this public art project and sandblasted into the pathways around the Collingwood Park Pavilion.  In collaboration with Lead Artist Agnieszka Matejko, I facilitated poetry workshops to generate short poems at Braemar School, Oscar Romero High School, Jasper Place High School and the Lois Hole Library.  Thanks to teachers Nicole Galellis, Rhonda Day, Jodi Burak, Katee Robichaud  and Steven Goss for inviting us to work with their wonderful students.  I call these poems “little love letters to the world.“
