Poetry on the Streets
Poetry on the Streets (POTS) is an interactive poetry writing exhibit created by Melanie Faranello in 2017 in Hartford, CT.
POTS is designed to engage pedestrians in writing and painting an original poem based on a word chosen from a "jar of emotions". The little blue typewriter is set-up in various urban locations such as public parks, pedestrian areas, street corners, bus stops.
MISSION: Poetry on the Streets' (POTS) mission is to engage people from all walks of life, backgrounds, ages, abilities, classes, ethnicities, in creative expression, and through our diversity witness our commonality. Poetry on the Streets encourages the mental and emotional benefits resulting from creative expression and aims to connect us and highlight the common human experience we all share.
