Countee Cullen Branch, NYPL Welcomes Poets Network & Exchange, Lorraine Currelley Founder/Exec. Dir. and 100 Thousand Poets for Change. A Global Event Where Poets and Artists Worldwide Unite for Change
- Saturday, September 27
at 1:00pm – 3:45pm in EDT
- Countee Cullen Branch, NYPL 104 West 136th Street NYC (near Lenox Avenue)
Lets 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.
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” needed to build and
sustain a healthy global community.
