Poetry on the Pillar is a creative project by the Walton community. Commissioned by Culture Liverpool, the artworks you can see on the pillar and in the tunnels were created collaboratively by Liverpool Poetry Space, with visual poems and artistic direction from Chris McCabe, The Windows Project, Northcote Primary School and Walton Youth & Community Project. The poems, written by local residents, are on the themes of home, community pride and reclaiming the underpass and include new commissions from poets Angela Cheveau and Joseph Roberts.
The project is part of Liverpool City Council’s County District Centre and Next Generation Neighbourhoods programmes.
