Voluntary Board Members wanted….

Quotidian- Word on the Street Limited, is a not for profit company, limited by

guarantee. It is an innovative creative arts production company that aims to enhance civic space, civic experience and public discourse with literature, to benefit individuals and communities. For the purposes of peace, reconciliation, and equality. Our work is life-affirming and life-enhancing and celebrates literature as our richest shared cultural heritage.

The motivation for developing the project is to change the message. All our ideas will be developed so as to be sharable and replicable in other urban contexts.  

 ‘’Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.”
