Turn Key Residency

PWYC Gumball Poetry Dispenser

Our gumball machine residency is mobile pop-up poetry dispenser. Our artists in residence compile a collection of short poems that we make available through a crank style gumball machine at different locations around Hamilton.

Currently, our machine is at Merk Snackbar on Ottawa street in the east end of Hamilton. Working under a Pay What You Can (PWYC) donation system, anyone can turn the crank on the machine and receive a poem. Afterwards, either using a QR code on the machine or going to our Donate Link, you can submit a donation to fund future Turn-Key residents and future monday press projects.
