Mapping places through poetry

The Disappearing

'Only takes minutes for history to be bulldozed plenty of those minutes have been found in this city' ~ from ‘Potts Point Redevelopment’ by Sarah Attfield, commissioned poet

Our friends at The Red Room Company have enlisted 300 established and emerging poets to map Australia's disappearing hisories as part of their awesome Disappearing project. Using cool geo-location technology to create Australia's largest poetic travel guide, poets explore place through the language of loss, land, culture and memory.
