Raining Poetry in Adelaide

Two PhD students at the University of Adelaide, Camille Roulière and Marianne Braux, have organised an exciting street art/poetry event with the support of the J.M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice at the University of Adelaide. Featuring a selection of poems from local Adelaide poets (including Jill Jones, Jennifer Liston, Alison Bennett, Banjo James and more), Camille and Marianne have painted poems in special “invisible” paint on the streets of Adelaide, only for the stencilled words to magically appear on the pavement after it rains.

The poetry is then visible around the city whenever the streets are wet for two months, brightening up rainy days for passers-by.

Check out where you can find the works on the Google Map of Poetry.

Join us for the launch of Raining Poetry in Adelaide!

When: Friday, August 18 at 5:30 PM – 7 PM
Where: University of Adelaide, Napier Building, Room 618.

Poets will perform their works, photographs and videos will be shown over a glass of wine, and if it is not raining, we will throw buckets of water on some poems around campus.

We look forward to seeing you there!

This event is generously supported by the J. M. Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice (University of Adelaide).
