Inspired by Mass Poetry’s RainingPoetry project in Boston, Sing Lit Station is undertaking a massive art project to paint excerpts of well-loved Singaporean poems on sidewalks around the island, using a specially formulated paint that is both invisible and waterproof. Curated by Pooja Nansi, the poems, largely unseen, will magically come to life during rainfall.
The first phase of the project has placed poems on the sidewalks of the Esplanade and the Arts House, while the second phase aims to bring poetry to the Singapore Art Museum and the heartlands.
Sing Lit Station is a literary non-profit that seeks to be a platform where writers and readers meet. Through its various programmes and initiatives, it aims to promote the literary scene, develop the craft of emerging and established writers, and engage the wider community in reading and writing.
