Kensington Healing Verse | Public Art & Poetry Project

site profile thumbnail


This website allows users to learn about and participate in the public art and poetry project, Kensington Healing Verse. Visitors can learn about the artwork, the process, and submit their own poems. Throughout 2021, Philadelphia Poet Laureate Trapeta B. Mayson held poetry workshops with Kensington residents. These workshops used poetry as a tool for sharing, listening, and reflection about community, daily life, and new pathways to healing for the Kensington Community. The participants’ poems capture memories, challenges, and aspirations of life in Kensington that were combined into group poem. This collective poem was transformed into a neon sign and lifted to the rooftop of 2400 Kensington Avenue to serve as a beacon of strength, hope, and healing for the residents of Kensington. This site was featured on Typewolf as the Site of the Day on Dec. 27, 2021
