Behind Creative Collision




What is the first thing that comes to your mind with "poetry bombing"? Sounds a bit dubious to me ever since hearing about poetry jams and grammar slams (......). But in fact, poetry bombing actually carries much more weight.

Planes fly overhead and drop thousands of poetry cards down to the city below. The creative effect of it all resounds with the message of peace by reflecting the imagery of war time air bombings. The project is thanks to the Chilean arts collective Casagrande who did this in Warsaw and most recently a few days ago on London's Southbank.

I think it is an extraordinary way to interact with a good dose of poetry and is a sombre, meaningful action.
