The original aim of the project was to encourage the creation and enjoyment of poetry in the Cardwell shire, through a series of innovative workshops and the creation of a community poetry wall to be launched during the National Poetry Week.
Another goal of the project was to reinvigorate the writing community of Cardwell by giving them a focus, and inspiration to get writing groups meeting on a regular basis. This project encouraged writers to work across the genres, of photography, text and art and encouraged Cardwell’s young people to express themselves this way as well.
Where to now for the project?
Now, 6 years on I feel it’s time to send these Poetry ripples out into the world and focus on the themes of peace, unity, empowerment, connection, family and children. It’s time to add more poems (some of my own and others who inspire me)- and keep celebrating poetry and making those ripples of connection larger and larger.
Yours in Poetry, June Perkins

Hey Dr. June, perhaps you can keep the ripple blog alive after the Tully event? Rippling across the world.
Yes, now several years later I am renovating the site!
I’m very interested in the work that you’ve done and are continuing to explore. I too have adopted the ripple effect belief system! Lovely to meet you here.
Lovely to hear from you Michele. It is wonderful to witness the ripple effects through the internet as well, and to continue that out into real life. Thanks for your feedback and all the best for your work too.
