Love Letters to the World — Sidewalk Poetry in the Meadows

MAY 24, 2018


A three-year collaboration between lead artists Jannie Edwards and Agnieszka Matejko and The Meadows Community League resulted in over 80 poems sandblasted into sidewalks in four locations in the Meadows community in southeast Edmonton. The lead artists conducted close to 100 poetry workshops in schools, seniors residences and the Meadow Public Library to solicit poems from community members. A community jury selected poems which were then sandblasted as a legacy project. Read about the project in the links below:
