100,000 Poets for Change Santa Maria Valley

A gathering of poets celebrating and promoting social, environmental and political change through the arts and creating a safe space for expression .


Join us on Saturday, September 24, 2016 at 6:00PM, as we celebrate alongside poets, musicians, and artists around the USA and ACROSS THE PLANET in a celebration to promote peace and sustainability and to call for serious social, environmental and political change! Santa Maria will join over 500 cities representing 100 countries on Saturday September 24, 2016 at the UDWA Building in Santa Maria.

The first order of change in this global event is for poets, writers, musicians, artists, activists to get together to create perform and demonstrate with other communities around the world. This will change how we see our local community and the global community. We have all become incredibly alienated in recent years. We hardly know our neighbors down the street let alone our creative allies who live and share our concerns in other countries. We need to feel this kind of global solidarity and to connect locally with our community. It will be empowering. The Santa Maria event is FREE.
