Poetic People Power
Poetic People Power presents its 10th annual show "Retro-Active:10 Years of Poetic Action!" This project was founded in 2003 by writer Tara Bracco to combine poetry and activism. Past shows have presented new poems on topics such as climate change, universal health care, and the global water crisis. Now, as Poetic People Power celebrates its tenth year, the group presents a look back at their artistic response to the changing political landscape over the past decade and offers new words about where our country is today. "Retro-Active" is a show not to be missed if you are a believer in the power of art, a community builder, a changemaker, or a person trying to make sense of today's politics. A 2011 article in The Brooklyn Rail described the audience's experience when it wrote: "Imagine pulling the blinds back and letting sunlight flood a darkened room. That's what a P3 show is like."

Join us as the artist and activist community celebrates Poetic People Power's 10th annual show.

This event will feature poets Bogar Alonso, Tara Bracco, Karla Jackson Brewer, Erica R. DeLaRosa, Andy Emeritz, Nate Gunsch, Angela Kariotis, Dot Portella, Shetal Shah, Pamela Sneed, Jonathan Walton, Justin Woo, and Deanna Zandt.
