'River of Words'

A poetry workshop for the SheppARTon Festival, 20 March 2022.

On 20 March 2022, we will be holding a Bush Poetry writing workshop to be facilitated by renowned local Bush Poet Mick Coventry.

The workshop will be held on the banks of the confluence of Shepparton and Mooroopna's 2 rivers, the Goulburn and the Broken, which will provide able inspiration for participants poetry!

At the end of the workshop, we will film willing participants as they read aloud their poems, with the clips of each poem to be uploaded to this space on our website.

Each recorded poem will then have its own QR code allocated, and posters of these QR codes will be installed along the walking path which travels along the Goulburn River from Victoria Park Lake to the confluence with the Broken.

These posters will remain in place for the rest of the SheppARTon festival, for path walkers to be able to access and enjoy the river poetry through their smart phones, following the 'River of Words'.
