'Get lost in the hidden places of Brisbane's Fortitude Valley. Discover secret doorways and forgotten phone boxes, dance with ghosts of the streets' past and future. In The City We Build, create your own pathways.
Weaving words into the physical spaces that we walk around daily, three Brisbane poets take you on an experimental journey of poetic storytelling through the rich hunting grounds of Fortitude Valley, unearthing its abundance of night spots, unusual characters, river posts, and alleyways. Beginning at the iconic Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, these poetic trails combine language and landmarks to showcase 'the Valley' in a whole new light. And you lead the way
Traverse the Brisbane River and discover the fluidity of choice with Julie Beveridge. Delve into the rock 'n' roll underbelly of the Valley with Carmen Leigh Keates. And travel through time and space, into Brisbane's past and through its future, with Chris Lynch.' (Publisher's blurb)
