We'd love your important words for the amazing 'THE FOURTH PLINTH' living statue event!

Alan's BBC interview:
I'm one of those people on Antony Gormley's Fourth Plinth 'living statues event' at Trafalgar Square, London, on:
Monday 27th July 2009 from 2pm - 3pm.

The British Library has now archived the project and you can see Alan on Antony Gormley’s Trafalgar Square Fourth Plinth Project:

Alan's Fourth Plinth page:

I'd would love as many of you as possible to send me your very "important words" and I will read out as many as I can during my hour on the plinth.

What's important to you that can be summed up in just one single word?
Is it a word that's important to the world, or is it something personal like someone's name?

All of your important words are welcome whoever you are. You can give a reason why the word is important to you, but you don't have to. You can include your name, or remain anonymous.

That was well done, Alan. And thanks for collecting and reading out so many important words (including mine).

Best wishes

I thoroughly enjoyed your Important Words! I wish I had come up with more. It would have been cool to have you call out "shenanigans!" LOL! That word makes me laugh!

I think you should do another "Important Words" reading - maybe in a pub or poetry house somewhere. get someone to film it and then put it on YouTube! I loved hearing the stories behind people's words.
