PhoneMe project makes it possible for people to create, record, and share their poems about their experiences, thoughts, and emotions inspired by public places and spaces. Our passion is to have a large collection of spoken word poems accessible online and to inspire anyone to be creative and to join PhoneMe dialogue. PhoneMe Project started in 2016 through a partnership with UBC Learning Exchange and the poets of Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. In the fall of 2017 we ran recording sessions at Vancouver Public Library nə́c̓aʔmat ct Strathcona Branch. Currently, we are working with secondary schools in the Lower Mainland. Our team is dedicated to wide community outreach and open dialogue. We run public poetry readings, performances and literacy outreach events across Lower Mainland. If you are interested in joining us, contact us, we would love to hear from you!
