Calling all poets, musicians, photographers and artists! The League of Extraordinary Poets and Local Dub Poet, Winston Farrell are collaborating to bring the international movement 100 Thousand Poets for Change to Barbados.
Join us for a time where we share not only what is wrong in Barbados but dialogue about the solutions. We are joining thousands of artists around the globe in the call for change in a number of issues.

“What kind of CHANGE are we talking about?”
The first order of change is for poets, writers, 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 have a number of issues in our society that we can discuss – Injustice, the environment, rising costs of living, education among others.
We are proposing a marathon event of poets, authors and writers and musicians sharing their pieces that highlight the issues in the society or propose solutions.
From 5pm-until we will gather at Goddards Sports Club at Fontabelle for a time of collective movement for change.
