Poetry in the Park

A community gathering in a local park to celebrate a love of the written or spoken word

  • Fund coins green
    $100 per group
  • Place green
    For projects in Minnesota
  • People green
    To get funding, groups must:
    1. Build a small team
    2. Host a kick-off meeting
    3. Share a team photo & action plan

How to get involved

Time: At the start you will need to give 1-2 hours a week to get the word out in your community and from then on just a couple of hours on the first Sunday of every month.

This 5 step guide will show you how to start a free, inclusive Poetry in the Park group in your area, to bring poetry outdoors and into your community. We hope to spread the Poetry in the Park idea to every town or village in Ireland and we'll provide plenty of support to you along the way!
