Michael Hoerman is creative director of The Temp Series Project. Influenced by the ephemeral nature of inspiration and the necessity for adaptive approaches to creative placemaking, The Temp Series Project develops community-based art like A Streetcar Named Desire, a March 2013 reading that brought together Merrimack Valley and Mississippi Delta poets at the historic Worthen House in Lowell, MA. A Streetcar Named Desire was an offsite program of AWP-Boston.
