Letters in Transit
April 30, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Letters in Transit is a pop-up letter writing station along the BeltLine on April 29th, 3-6pm under the Lucile Avenue Bridge and April 30th, 11-2pm near the Ponce City Market trestle. BeltLine travelers can take a moment of intentional pause to exchange a story via written letter. Letters, signed anonymously or not and addressed to the recipient of the traveler’s choice, are deposited into a mailbox at the pop-up. Insights from correspondents will be used as part of research exploring the question: how does the moving body in public space make meaning, shape and abstract time, and connect with story and people across generations?
Letters from Letters in Transit are being added to a pool of correspondence gathered by Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Scholar-in-Residence, Anicka Austin, as research into the way we learn and perceive through performance and everyday gesture in public space.
