Poet in the City

Harmonic Artists are proud to support the great work of Poet in the City and the power of poetry to bring people together. Steve Abbott has been a trustee since 2017. 

Poet in the City connects people and places through poetry. Poet in the City helps people and places tell their stories, creates access to challenging ideas, attracts radically new audiences, brings about social and behavioural change, and creates large-scale entertainment. From poetry in libraries to arts centres, car parks to community venues and festivals to music halls, we present poets who can enlarge our worlds. 
At any moment, you might find us transforming a public library with dub poetry and sound systems, taking over a train station with poetry tickets and buskers, presenting poetry to thousands of people under the St Paul’s Cathedral dome or celebrating the stories of communities through cultural placemaking work.

Audiences are at the heart of Poet in the City; we work with a thriving community of volunteers who are involved in all aspects of our work, deliver creative audience participation programmes and lead a producers scheme for 16-25 year olds to train the next generation of poetry producers.
