Seek out local artists

Posted on 21 March 2013

It is apparently World Poetry Day, and I saw some people posting their favourite lines from various poets. The first thing that sprang into my mind is this one:

“Fort George Park is half graveyard, half love letter.”

It is from this poem by Prince George poet/musician Jeremy Stewart. It pops into my head at least once a week. It probably doesn’t mean anything to anyone outside of Prince George and even then you have to have a very particular relationship with the city for it to resonate. But it resonates for me, and the fact that it’s for such a specific audience is what makes it special. Universal art is wonderful, but so is the stuff that’s hyper-local.

Seek out your local artists- they’re telling your story the way no one else can.
