Poetic Response:  talking back to the city

Adding transient objects and images to forgotten or overlooked parts of the city is a way our participants practice poetic dialogue. This practice helps children connect to and act upon an imposing, adult space that seems beyond their scope of influence.


Before our excursion into the city, we told the students about a clown downtown that is all by himself. We asked students to make a picture of a friend for the clown, that we would leave for him to keep him company. We attached the drawings to magnets and found out where the clown was hiding.
