Poetry Commission at Edinburgh Park submission deadline
September 13, 2019
An opportunity has arisen for a Scotland-based poet to take up a commission at one of the country’s most exciting new buildings. Parabola, the developer who owns 43 acres of undeveloped land to the south of the capital’s Edinburgh Park, has announced that the Turner Prize-nominated David Mach has been commissioned to design a unique multipurpose building made from shipping containers. Named Mach 1, it will be David Mach’s first building.
The poet chosen for the commission will be expected to produce a long poem, for which they will be paid £3,000; the poet will also be expected to perform the piece at Mach 1 in early summer 2020.
