Coming to you from Belfast and connecting across five continents, on #PoetryDayIRL 2019, we have created an online interactive map, poet Maria McManus, in collaboration with sound artist Una Lee, enabling the followers of Poetry Day 2019 to listen to the poems read by the poets themselves. Our project is supported by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Poetry Ireland. Look out for our poetry labels: they’re a gift of poetry to take home!
This project is an experiment to expand and to build on the success of the LabeLLit & Poetry Jukebox projects, developing the idea further by using an open source digital platform to host an online sound map of poems. Visit our PoetryM’app.
The poems can be also heard on our Soundcloud.
