About

The text and poetry for Of Earth and Sky has been created by the Gloucestershire community through a major call out and workshops. With over 80 submissions from across the county, the final poetry has been curated by local poet JPDL and artist Luke Jerram.

The poetry and text will respond to the city, the climate emergency and the impact that Covid-19 has had on us all as individuals and on our view of the planet. We would like the words to be hopeful, embedding a sense of pride and ownership of the area. After an unprecedented period of lockdown and social distancing, it feels more important now than ever to have creativity in our lives.

Like several of Luke Jerram’s other projects, Of Earth and Sky creates an opportunity for people to express themselves, in order to create a large scale temporary public installation.
