A production of Mass Poetry and the City of Boston

Bostonians are in for a treat when it rains! In select locations throughout the city, the streets - when wet - will reveal poems.

Join Mass Poetry's Raining Poetry project!

We can't wait to bring Raining Poetry to more neighborhoods throughout Boston and beyond in multiple languages.

Donate now to our efforts locally or purchase our Raining Poetry Guide for tips on how to bring this project to your own organization or community.  If you are interested in working more actively with Mass Poetry to execute your Raining Poetry project, please email us at programassistant@masspoetry.org.  

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council,
administrated by the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture.

Sponsored in part by WBUR's Kind World. Radio about kindness for a rainy day.
