“What kind of CHANGE are we talking about?”

Source: http://100tpc.org/about-2
The first order of 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. This will change how we see our local community and the global community. 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. I think it will be empowering.

And of course there is the political/social change that many of us are talking about these days. There is trouble in the world. Wars, ecocide, the lack of affordable medical care, racism, the list goes on. We are only asking that local organize events about change within the guidelines of peace and sustainability.

It appears that transformation towards a more sustainable world is a major concern and could be a global guiding principle for this event. Peace also seems to be a common cause. War is not sustainable. There is an increasing sense that we need to move forward and stop moving backwards. But I am trying not to be dogmatic. I am hoping that together we can develop our ideas of the “change/transformation” we are looking for as a group, and that each community group will decide their own specific area of focus for change for their particular event.

“What are we talking about for 100TPC—Israel?”

As the organizer of this year’s Israel event, I suggest that we focus on the idea of positive change in our world, as each writer defines it. There are many views of how to obtain what is best for our world, what might in the Jewish tradition be called Tikkun Olam. Perhaps despite the diversity of opinions about how to achieve what is best, we might find common ground in what is best:

• sustainability—living in the world in such a way that our children, grandchildren, and succeeding generations might also live as well (or better) in the world

• peace—a sustainable peace that provides rights, security, and freedom to all

• cooperation—a way to speak and work together to understand each other and find paths to the previous goals through democratic and pluralistic practices

These are only my thoughts. I invite each writer to reflect on the idea of change.

“What will we do on 28 September 2013?”

Read our writing together in any language, listen to each other, reflect, and share an evening dedicated to the idea that writers (artists, musicians) serve our culture and have a significant role to play in helping the world become better (step by step).
And start planning for the 2014 100TPC—Israel event.
