The Santa Clarita Arts calendar is full of events for the whole community to enjoy with the return of the Sidewalk Poetry Project, new calls for artists and the much-anticipated 30th annual Fine Craft Show.

 

Sidewalk Poetry 2022

Entry Deadline: Nov. 22, 2021

CALL FOR POETRY!

The Sidewalk Poetry Project 2022 is now open for submissions! The theme for this year is ‘What is Home?’

The poems should reflect on connections to physical or emotional spaces. What does Home mean to you?

The Sidewalk Poetry Project stamps original poetry into sections of damaged sidewalks that are being rehabilitated, so final locations will be determined by availability.

Selected poems may be placed near parks, bus stops, trailheads, crosswalks, schools, or shopping centers. Let the Santa Clarita landscape and the built environment be your inspiration.

Details on entry rules and deadlines can be found [HERE].

You can find previous winning poems [HERE].
