Established poets such as [[David Malouf]], [[Jordie Albiston]] and [[John Clarke]] joined nibs with songwriter [[Mia Dyson]], Melbourne poet [[Lucy Holt]], and ten year-old balladeer [[Annaliese Porter]]. The exhibition was launched in a sonic landscape, with satirical room notes by Johanna Featherstone and original portraits by [[Tonee Messiah]].

Tonee's series of Poet Portraits were sponsored by the NAVA Visual and Craft Artists' Grant, and managed by NAVA with financial assistance from the Visual Arts/ Craft Board of the Australia Council, the Simpson-Michel Foundation and Pat Corrigan.
