On Saturday, September 29 from 4-6pm the global poetry event “100 Thousand Poets for Change” will take place in downtown Santa Barbara at Coffee Cat. The reading is part of an international grassroots educational organization that was founded in 2011 to promote social, environmental, and political change through poetry. In 100T PC's inaugural year, poets around the world participated in over 650 poetry events in 95 countries.
Organized locally by poets Sojourner Kincaid Rolle and Michelle Detorie, this year's celebration will feature an Open Mic, The Poetry Booth (a super fun and creative poetry installation that’s not to be missed!) and a Group Photo at 5pm. Whether you are a seasoned poet or simply wake up feeling poetic on Saturday (or, perhaps like some of us, you’d be at Coffee Cat working on your laptop anyway), we hope to see you there.
You can bring a poem to read, whether your own work or a poem by another poet, and/or make a poem at The Poetry Booth.
