each moment is already art
just there just waiting to be

~ from ‘Non-standard Anthem’ by Lachlan Brown

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 and reflect via poetic provocations and partnerships that connect people and place through poetry. Poetic Moments aims to inspire audiences of all ages to find their own voices through poetry.
