The City of Ballarat is seeking expression of interest from local poets to create a public display of their literary works at the Little Bridge Street Pocket Park.
The chosen poet will have their poetry displayed on seating within the new Pocket Park. The Little Bridge Street Pocket Park project forms part of the transformation of the Little Bridge Street precinct, aimed at encouraging community use and improving safety in the area.
The total poetry commission price is $5,000.
The poet will work with street furniture designers to incorporate their literary work, which portrays life in urban Ballarat, into seating within the Pocket Park.
The Little Bridge Street Pocket Park project will strengthen community connection and engagement with the site, improve facilities and increase safety in the area.
The Little Bridge Street Pocket Park project is funded by the Victorian Government Community Crime Prevention Program and the City of Ballarat.
Local poets are encouraged to apply by submitting up to four poems for consideration by 5pm, Monday 29 January 2018. The City of Ballarat’s Public Art Advisory committee will work with the Ballarat Writer’s Festival to select the final poems.
