This post comes to you from Cultura21
September 28th 2013
Poets around the USA, and across the planet, gathered in a celebration of poetry to promote serious social, environmental, and political change :Â â€ The first change is for poets, writers, musicians, artists, anybody, to actually get together to create and perform, educate and demonstrate, simultaneously, with other communities around the world.â€
The idea is to change how people see the global society : â€ We have all become incredibly alienated in recent years. We hardly know our neighbors down the street let alone our creative allies who live and share our concerns in other countries. We need to feel this kind of global solidarity.â€
It appears that transformation towards a more sustainable world is a major concern and could be a global guiding principle for this event. Â There is an increasing sense that need to move forward and stop moving backwards : â€œTogether we can develop our ideas of the change/transformationâ€.Â Each community group will decide their own specific area of focus for change for their particular event.Â 100 Thousand Poets for Change will organize â€œparticipantsâ€ by local region, city, or state, and find individuals in each area who would like to organize their local event.
