sPark It Liverpool is a project set up and designed by Transition Liverpool to give a platform to community organisations in the Liverpool City Region. In summer 2021, community organisations and independent businesses will take over the streets of Liverpool, creating pop-up installations in on-street parking bays in order to engage, inspire and entertain the people of our city. The aim is to build a strong network, promote environmental, social, and economic justice, and ensure that each project has the biggest possible impact on our community.
Give poetry A Chance’s instillation idea for sPark It Liverpool is to host a pop-up poetry stand, where a roster of poets could perform to the public throughout the day. There could be makeshift seats for the public to pull up a seat and listen to the performances, as well as an information stand that could contain leaflets on what sPark It Liverpool is and who Give Poetry A Chance are.
To make the performance as environmentally friendly as possible, we would use recycled material for seats and a portable amplifier and microphone for performances.
To make sPark It Liverpool happen, we need to meet the sPark It Liverpool crowdfund total. If you are interested in making sPark It Liverpool happen and for Give Poetry A Chance to be part of such a fantastic community-based project, could you please back the crowdfund, which can be found here.
