Melbourne poet Bonny Cassidy led students of Luther College on a journey to uncover their own poetry object through The Red Room Company project, The Cabinet of Lost and Found.
In this learning resource students are asked to select a 'talismanic object' which has special meaning to them to use as stimulus for a poem. They are also asked to create a personal cabinet of lost and found, in the form of an anthology of poems. Students are asked to not only compose their own poems, but also collect poems from other writers that are special to them.
Students also create a group collection, either in the form of a physical cabinet installation, or a published 'collection' of poems.
Bonny also composed a poem for the school, ‘Treasure’, which is available on the Red Room website (or view in playlist above).
