This project is possible with support from the Belmont Cultural Council, which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
A collaboration in part with Mass Poetry, each poem costs approximately $75 to install, with community-provided poems and volunteer support. Our small grant affords 5 poems to be placed around the community, while also covering project-related materials and a small honorarium for our guest poet judge, Matthew Burgess.
Of course, I would love to see poems everywhere this spring!The possibility of including more poems will depend on volunteer time to cut stencils and install the. If you would like to have additional poems sited by your elementary school students, please contact Kate Bowen at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
