Chapman Freeborn organise helicopter for 'Rain of Poems' event

Chapman Freeborn organised a helicopter for a high-profile public art event dropping bookmarks featuring poetry over Southbank Centre’s Jubilee Gardens in London.

The ‘Rain of Poems’ opened an event aptly named ‘Poetry Parnassus’ as part of the London’s 2012 Festival of the World, a 12-week festival that brings together leading artists from across the world with the very best from the UK. The nationwide celebration runs from 21 June to 9 September 2012.

Thousands of people came to watch the display and caught the bookmarks that bared poems written by over 300 contemporary poets from 204 countries.
