100 Thousand Poets for Change
Poets in 450 cities representing 115 countries are currently organizing the largest poetry reading in history with over 800 individual events scheduled to take place simultaneously on September 29th to promote environmental, social, and political change.
Poets, writers, artists, and humanitarians will create, perform, educate and demonstrate, in their individual communities, and decide their own specific area of focus for change within the overall framework of peace and sustainability, which founder Michael Rothenberg stated, "...is a major concern worldwide and the guiding principle for this global event."
All those involved are hoping, through their actions and events, to seize and redirect the political and social dialogue of the day and turn the narrative of civilization towards peace and sustainability.
Immediately following September 29th all documentation on the 100TPC.org website will be preserved by Stanford University in California, which has recognized 100 Thousand Poets for Change as an historical event, the largest poetry reading in history. They will archive the complete contents of the website, 100TPC.org, as part of their digital archiving program LOCKSS.
