The Poet’s Blox Opening is Near!

The media team has now transformed into a multi-faceted catalogue, media and events coordination team (with help from the fundraising team). Currently, we are working on finalizing and printing the brochure and catalogue, which will both be available at the Poet’s Blox opening.


Within the next two weeks, we will be sending out the pre-written press releases and invitations for the opening. In succession with the press releases we will also be posting current new articles on the green corridor websites (here).

The tentative date for the opening event is Thursday, November 25th from 7-10pm at the Lebel Gallery.  Details for the event are in the works, such as the catering, a slide show from our archive of pictures taken this semester, arranging tours of Poet’s Blox and various Green Corridor images to decorate the gallery space.

The catalogue is finally back on track and almost completed. The layout is complete and we are currently in the stages of editing the text and scheduling photographs of the Poet’s Blox construction. After the structure is installed, the new photos will be added to the catalogue, which will then be ready for printing!

Lastly, the media team has published a Green Corridor update about Ecohouse in the current issues of The Student Pulse, so keep an eye out!

Media Team Working Hard

Photo Stills from our Video Blog: Ecohouse Team

 This past week, the Media/Catalogue team has been focusing on a number of things. First and foremost, we are working to put together an informative, photo-filled brochure of the Poet’s Blox project that will be available at the gallery reception. This brochure will be an overview of the project, highlighting the main elements of the structure such as the LED sign, wind turbine and wind meter, and the interior “eco lab”. It will also discuss the project’s significance as an art piece in the community. Along with the brochure, we are designing eye-catching posters and postcards for the reception.

Once completed, the brochure will be a “mini” version of the catalogue, acting as a reference point for when we turn our full attention to completing the catalogue. The catalogue will contain similar categories and information, only expanded.

 Thirdly, we have recently been filming all of the groups in order to make a blog video for the website. Instead of reading print, visitors to the site will be able to watch a short video of groups at work and in action. The video is currently being edited and will be posted shortly.

“Video Blogging” and Event Planning

This week we decided to get updates from every group and log their progress through creating a video blog. This form of blogging will log the major events of each group and their progress throughout the semester in the form of a video for major events along with taking photos. These videos will be posted to the website for everyone to view.

We also have been going over invite lists and media contact outlets for the opening event for the Poet’s Blox. Many media contacts were gathered from previous legacy reports and then updated. We also discussed dates for booking the Gallery for the grand opening as a place for our guests to engage with the contributors of the project and everyone involved. The opening is aiming for mid-november.

In the past week, the catalogue team has taken on many more tasks related to promotion and media.  We have already divided into smaller groups to cover all projects which include: designing the catalogue, writing press releases and new updates, photographing all important events and planning the opening of the wind turbine.



Currently we are working on documenting the arrival of the crate and writing the first press release about the installation of the wind meter and LED screen.  This press release will be sent to our list of media outlets in the Windsor area, who we hope gain interests in the green corridor projects.  We have also completed the first draft of the layouts (see one sample above).

Our goal is to get anyone and everyone updated on what Green Corridor has been doing since the last major project. Contacting media outlets and getting information to the public is mandatory.

While writing for the catalogue and sending out tweets (stay updated here!) we are aiming to have the turbine opening in mid-November with an amazing event full of media guests and people who are important to the Windsor community.

We will also have the first news article posted this week (here).  The group has a lot of work ahead of them with the wind turbine completion just around the corner! Feel free to contact our group if you have any promotional ideas.

Off to a Good Start

We brought in some examples of interesting layouts we thought we'd like to use in our catalogue

Our group has the task of creating the Wind Turbine Catalogue, a 30+ page publication documenting  the Wind Turbine project.

This catalogue is for anyone interested in learning more about this public artwork, and as such it will include informative text as well as photos and diagrams.  This assignment was especially daunting during the first few group meetings as we worked to come up with a way to break down the enormous scope of the catalogue into several workable categories that we want to cover, ranging from design and technology to art and poetry.

Once we knew what we wanted to write and ask questions about, last class we divided ourselves into two groups: One is the design team, currently creating four sample layouts using iPhoto and InDesign, from which we will come up with a template for the catalogue.

The other group is made up of the information -gathereres, who are collecting information from various sources that will be used in our writing. The sources we are currently (or in the near future)  in contact with include the Wind Turbine Engineering team (diagrams, materials being used) , the poets contributing their work (quotes for the “poetry” section), and Lorenzen, who donated the turbine ( a statement for the catalogue).
