100 Thousand Poets for Change on September 24

In Solidarity with the World Poetry Movement, the Armenian Poetry Project invites its readers to participate in 100 Thousand Poets for Change. Poets around the world are planning individual events to take place simultaneously on September 24th in a demonstration/celebration of poetry to promote social and political change.

Over 335 cities representing 68 countries have signed up already to make this global initiative a success through poetry readings, political demonstrations, community picnics, awareness events, parades, and more!

Prior to Sept 24, read a poem in silence, or, to a group, or to a friend in need and buy a book of poetry. On the day of September 24, 2011, attend any of the events in your area.

ANY ARMENIAN POETS PARTICIPATING or ORGANIZING AN EVENT, please contact Lola at armenianpoetryproject[at]gmail[dot]com for postings in APP.
