This vital force, carried in skin                                  
and within, a genesis of sacred stories
yarns like blood through our veins 

Nicole Smede from 'Bunada language', Writing Water

Poetic Moments elevates the visibility and accessibility of contemporary Australian poetry via cultural placemaking with publication of poems in unexpected spaces from mangrove boardwalks to parks, zoos, hoardings, and on trains and ferries.
Embracing multiple languages, inventive platforms and artforms, Poetic Moments creates opportunities for all audiences to engage, respond and reflect via poetic provocations and partnerships that connect people and place through poetry. 

Our collaboration with Red Room Poetry has allowed us to move beyond a purely European ‘didactic panel’ approach to site interpretation, and to enhance a wonderful piece of infrastructure – the new Badu Mangroves Boardwalk – through a poetic re-visioning of this extraordinary space.
