Poetry Pathways Project

The Meadows Community League is made up of three neighbourhoods, Larkspur, Wildrose and Silverberry.  The community has approximately 22,000 residents, which makes it one of the largest community leagues in the City of Edmonton. The league is very active and chooses to bring many different activities and programs to their members. (movie nights, ski nights, community cleanup etc).  It is with great pride that the league has been able to bring such a special art piece to so many of our residents.

The project was conceived and coordinated by lead artists Jannie Edwards and Agnieszka Matejko, who approached The Meadows Community League to work with them to bring this art installation to fruition.

At it’s completion there will be 4 phases throughout the neighbourhoods. The first phase will be in front of Father Michael Troy Junior High School, the second in front of Velma E Baker Elementary School, third on the pathways north of the Millcreek Ravine and lastly in front of Silverberry Park.

The Meadows Community League also received support from The City of Edmonton, The Government of Alberta, RioCan ATB, and Summit Memorials as well as all the poems that  were submitted by our many talented area residents and schools including,  Velma E Baker School, Father Michael Troy Catholic Junior High School, A Blair McPherson School, Bisset School, McNally High School, Holy Trinity Catholic High School, Austin O’Brien Catholic High School and Tea Connections.
