Tram Stop 6 – Way To Go

Some years ago I wrote little concrete poems for a large, very concrete space. They were turned into street signs and pinned in place. They are still there…

Tram Stop 6 – Way To Go

This public art project was curated and designed by poet Mike Ladd and artist Cathy Brooks in collaboration with the City of Marion in South Australia.

Launched in 2015, the project can still be found at the corner of South Rd and Glengyle Tce in Glandore SA.

If you’re lucky, you might also stumble across a more transient installation joining in the fun:
