The Dublin Poetry Map is now live.
You can view the full map in your mobile device here.
We would like to thank Poetry Ireland for their support.
On Thursday afternoon as part of Poetry Day Ireland, we will be launching a Dublin Twitter Poetry Map.
Twitter offers creative writers ways of participating and collaborating in global online poetry communities where writing takes on a performance as well as a social dimension. In this project Marsha Berry brings together poets to perform poetry with Twitter in an exhibition space. The audience was able to hear the poems as well as see a live feed of these poems mingling with poetry from around the globe in a stream of tweets. If they wished, they could take up the invitation to participate and many did. Marsha proposes that artists, writers and poets embrace Twitter and social media as new mediums ready to be appropriated and colonised for poetic performances with both words and visual images.
The hash tags #conku and #haiku were used.
This was part of the Convergence: Transforming Our Future exhibition, Design Research Institute, RMIT University, May 3 – 24, 2013.
