Poetry on the Streets

Posted on June 9, 2016 at 7:45 AM

“To find extraordinary things, go to the ordinary streets!”
Mehmet Murat ildan Turkish Playwright & Novelist

Inspired by similar projects in Boston and by Opieme (the Italian 'Banksy'), Portsmouth Poetry and renowned local "street artist" My Dog Sighs are collaborating in a year long project to bring poetry to the streets in the form of murals illustrating poets and poetry.

Work begins on the first of these on Thursday 16. This will depict Dr John Cooper Clarke and some of his work ahead of his performance a week later at the New Theatre Royal.

The site is a 20m wall on Marketway (A3) at the entrance to the city opposite the Cascades car park. The site has been kindly supplied by Portsmouth City Council.

Our sincere thanks to Stephen Baily [Head of City Development and Cultural Services] and Jo Bennett & Sarah Lindley [Housing & Property Services] for their generous support and assistance.
