Be inspired by messages of empowerment and positivity

The Poetry Project, a UK initiative which displays messages of empowerment and positivity on information boards in the London Underground, has landed in WA with a unique collaboration between UK poet, author and project creator James McInerney, and a group of WA shopping centres including Currambine Central, Warnbro Centre, Kalamunda Central and Stirlings Central Geraldton.

Mr McInerney said the Project initially ran in multiple stations in the London Underground including London Bridge Station, Covent Garden and Leicester Square, to name a few.

"The aim of the project is to get poetry into places you wouldn't normally see it and open people`s eyes to the joy of poetry," Mr McInerney said.

"All the messages are positive and empowering. They are designed to make the commuters/shoppers stop and think, and question their life."

Mr McInerney is a Northampton Poet based in the UK and author of five books. He is currently working with well-known actors from popular films and TV shows who are voicing his poetry and helping to highlight issues such as mental health and importantly, making them less taboo.

From July 22, you will find Mr McInerney's messages of empowerment and positivity in Centre and online. Make sure to keep an eye for The Poetry Project when you pop into Currambine Central, Warnbro Centre, Kalamunda Central and Stirlings Central Geraldton!
