Of Earth & Sky: Call Out for words & poetry

Call out for words for Luke Jerram’s new Artwork in Gloucester.

Launching in August this year, Of Earth and Sky is a new artwork by Luke Jerram commissioned by the Gloucester Culture Trust in partnership with Strike A Light, Gloucester City Council and Gloucester Cathedral. 

Created from poetry and text submitted by the public, the artwork will be embedded within communities and presented in over 25 locations across Gloucester for people discover and enjoy. 

Call Out for Your Words!
If you’re based in Gloucestershire, we are seeking your original words and poetry for this new art project. Read and complete the submissions form here!

The text and poetry for Of Earth and Sky will come from the community through this call out and a series of online workshops delivered by Luke Jerram and Gloucestershire based poet JPDL.

As we begin to cautiously emerge from the lockdown, there is a sense that we better appreciate the value of local parks and green space for our wellbeing, mental and physical health. This installation will celebrate the city’s outdoor spaces and encourage people to look differently at Gloucester – to see the beauty in its heritage and in its green spaces. Find out more.
