In response to the fire at the Royal Clarence Hotel, in Exeter. Exeter City Council wanted there to be a mechanism for Exeter city residents to engage and share their thoughts and views about the city through means of poetry. Through the use of Poetry Pin, children, young people and adults will have the facility to write and share their poems, via an interactive platform.
From 9th January and working with Daisi, the Devon Arts Organisation and Exeter City Council Chris Jelley will open The Exeter Poetry Pin channel, creating a mechanism to attach poetry to location within the city.
The aims of this project are, to engage and inspire Exeter residents to reflect, consider and put their thoughts into words, in order that others can share their experiences. The poems may be inspired by the fire or they may be about the city itself, their sense of place, importance of heritage or something else related to the city. The geo location of each poem will also add an extra dimension to the poetry, as it will locate the poem to a specific area of the city, thus giving the reader a sense of place and connection.
