It’s Poetry Season


Homegrown Poetry Competition 2014

We love poetry, and the people who create it. So here at the Living Room of the City, we’re celebrating our generous local brand of poetry with KUPU – Poetry Beyond Words.

You’ll find KUPU popping up here and there, any time any place – at a picnic, on the bottom of receipts, on random walls, maybe a street corner or two. The words are generously donated by our local poets (we call them our KUPU DIAMONDS) for you to enjoy. Designers and publishers alike help to make these come alive in unexpected ways. We hope you like them.

Join us for an afternoon of poetry fayre at our Poetry Picnic on 20 July 2014 at the Central Library. An evening of poetry with three of our amazing local poets, Tim Upperton, Joy Green and Leonel Alvarado on National Poetry Day, 22 August 2014 is not to be missed. For a sumptuous visual experience visit the Black River Exhibition at Te Manawa. It’s on now. For details any of these events KUPU POETRY PROGRAMME 2014

Read! Write! Create! Enjoy!
