POP POETRY: LOVE LETTERS IN THE SQUARE
Festival week sees a corner of Aotea Square come alive each night with text projections. Every evening a combination of curated and live writing will emanate from the mysterious Pop Poetry hut, inspired by the theme ‘Love Letters’.
A sparkling collection of intrepid writers join the fun, with one a night writing live but anonymously and only revealing themselves as they sign off... expect poems, letters, lyrics and other treats.
Pop is an annual series of public art projects made for and by Aucklanders, supported by Auckland Council and the Waitemata- Local Board. Its mission is to create unexpected experiences in Auckland’s neighbourhoods; creating surprise, making fun and forming communities. Pop Poetry is in its second year of activating urban sites around the city though large-format, typographic projections by night. Pop Poetry is designed by Alt Group.
Pop Poetry will take place each evening from 6:00pm - 9:00pm, from Tuesday 16 May until Sunday May 21.
