The 5th annual 100 Thousand Poets for Change event will happen today at Beyond Baroque from 10am – 2pm, with poetry readings continuing throughout the afternoon until 8pm.
The event runs in partnership with the 100TPC world movement, that sees multiple simultaneous poetry reading events held throughout the world. Uniting poets across the globe to bring peace, sustainability, and change to our communities.
“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. It will be empowering,” say organizers of the global event.
Beyond Baroque is at 681 Venice Blvd., Venice, next to SPARC and the Venice Fire Station.
