Carry A Poem: an Edinburgh based project

Carry a Poem is a joint venture between Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature Trust, the Scottish Poetry Library and City of Edinburgh public libraries, but it couldn’t happen without the help of dozens of partners across the Scottish capital.

Initially set up to celebrate Edinburgh being a UNESCO city of literature. A way for people to share the poems that mean something to them. The campaign asks people to share the way they carry their poem and what that poem means to them.

The thing about this project i liked the most was the collection of poems people left in Saint Andrews Square. Suspended and attached to a series of small plants were the poems that people had left to share either with people they loved (coinciding with Valentines Day) or the passing public in general.
