Make Poetry Concrete in Newton: Crowdfunding Project Underway

Make Poetry Concrete will stamp selected poems into the concrete of newly constructed sidewalks throughout Newton’s villages. You can be a part of this project by supporting the campaign today!  Imagine beginning your walk in one section of town and discovering the first poem, immersing yourself in it you discover this is part of a series, a series spread throughout Newton.  The first poem takes you on a physical journey to the next and forces the reader to explore the entire town to finish the poems while taking the reader past numerous local shops and restaurants along the journey.

Every year new sidewalks are poured in Newton. Making Poetry Concrete will dovetail with these existing efforts. This project will produce a library of ten poem molds that will each be stamped once in the sidewalks of the City over an 18 month period.

Let’s Make Poetry Concrete in Newton today! Any donation, large or small will help us reach our goal by March 29th. Click HERE for more details.
