Poetic Places Fredericton was inspired by the original Poetic Places app, created in London by Sarah Cole during her time as Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the British Library. Ms. Cole launched Poetic Places with the hopes that other cities around the world would follow her lead, and Dr. Kathleen McConnell here in Fredericton was immediately interested. After bouncing ideas back and forth with Ms. Cole, and then receiving a Canada Student Summer Jobs Grant, Poetic Places Fredericton was born.
Our app and original website are no longer active, but you can still access all the Fredericton content right here. You can download the free Poetic Places London app on both the Android and Apple Stores, or visit their website at http://www.poeticplaces.uk. If you are interested in the concept of Poetic Places and want some tips on starting one in your city, you can contact the developers via the Contact Us section of the Poetic Places London website, or the About Us section of the Poetic Places Fredericton app.
We would like to thank Ms. Cole for her help and guidance throughout this project.
