Toomas Tubalkain worked to bring the Wick Poetry Center at Kent State and Crestwood Schools together to organize poetry workshops at 4th grade and high school levels. The first 4th grade workshop produced the ‘Our World’ poem that was so good it deserved to be publicly displayed. A Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation Grant was applied for and received. Their thousand dollar grant covered the manufacture of the poetry kiosk. DMRC contibuted the remainder of the needed money to install the kiosk and pay the artist for her rendering of the poem. It was installed prior to 2019 Art on the Hill and is a beautiful focal point for the Mini-Plaza rejuvenation
