Now, as Poetic People Power (P3) 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. The retrospective will include the works of more than a dozen poets on topics including climate change, universal health care, and the global water crisis. 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 me May 7th as people join together in a chorus of voices to speak out against injustice.
