The Project

Poetic Moments elevates the visibility and accessibility of contemporary Australian poetry by publishing in unexpected places from trains to planes, street banners, murals and sculptural installations.
Spanning multiple languages, the project creates opportunities to engage, respond & reflect via poetic provocations & partnerships that connect people & place through poetry. Poetic Moments aims to inspire audiences of all ages to find their own voices through poetry. 


Poetry is presented via:

• Urban & country trains, ferries, buses, light rail & planes 
• Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria & other gardens
• Bus shelters, billboards, street banners, murals
• Elevators
• Projections on buildings
• Coffee cups
• Sculptural installations
