Poetry in Motion® 2018 Day of Celebration

April 16, 2018 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm America/Chicago Timezone
Music City Central

Metro Arts partnered with Southern Word and The Porch Writers Collective to engage students and adults in poetry contests centered around the theme “The Power of Movement.” Winning poems will fill the visual space aboard buses, and for the first time, riders can board a “Poetry Bus” completely wrapped in poems and hear winning poetry over the on-board audio announcements.

Nashvillians can tour the Poetry Bus, view winning poems from students and adults, and hear the readings and performances of poets from Southern Word and The Porch at the Poetry in Motion® Celebration Day, 4-6 p.m. on April 16, 2018, at Music City Central. The event will also feature the release of a free community poetry anthology curated by The Porch Writers Collective.
