A poetry reading at Niche, in downtown Vancouver

The issue driving this project is public access to poetry. While there have been many activities taking place in Clark County relating to poetry, such as workshops and readings, the public is not always aware of them. By organizing activities and events around this large-scale project and pulling together the many stakeholders and interested organizations involved in education, library systems, and the arts, we believe that we can raise awareness of poetry in the county and make it more accessible to the public.
