POETRY AS PUBLIC ART
WE SO TOUGH
Here's Geoff standing inside the Adelaide Youth Court
with a framed poster of 'We So Tough' which has been
positioned to be seen and read by young offenders as they
await proceedings for their charged offences.

mental health issues
industrial & employment issues
200-plus Grade Ten boys seated in rows in our assembly hall for almost two hours… A Writers’ Workshop class populated by the most creative minds in the school… A classroom full of our most academically disengaged and at-risk senior students… A collection of teachers sitting in the staffroom with cups of tea in their hands.
…I have seen The People’s Poet, Geoff Goodfellow, captivate all of the above, holding them in the figurative palm of his hand and hanging on his every word.
