The Poartry Project

building loving worlds through loving words

What is Poartry?

“Poartry” is a sacred space. Poartry is about seeing and voicing the art in all things and lives. It is the nurturing and sharing of the art and culture of building loving worlds through loving words. The Poartry Project is the mission, community and contribution of a poet, writer, visual artist, “cartographer of the unseen” and agent of beauty, perception and insight to light a path of good in the world. We do this to foster, evoke and celebrate the potential in all lives; cultivate the power of discerning interpretation; nurture courteous communication as civil world citizens; and build bridges of understanding, wonder and discovery of the magic of our great adventure together across the universe.


The heart of The Poartry Project is creating opportunities to share and experience stories in diverse voices through the power of poetry. We stand for the belief and experience that poetry is accessible to all, life is poetic, and there is a poet inside all of us that speaks not only through words.


Where you can keep up to date and plan ahead with scheduled and special pop-up events throughout the year.
