This Sunday at 3:00 pm, head to the Art at Bay Gallery on Staten Island for an amazing poetry show hosted by “Poetic People Power,” an activist group that uses poetry as a way to raise awareness about important social issues, such as universal health care and consumerism. Their performances are inspiring, thought-provoking, and life-changing. Sunday’s show will feature excerpts from their 2009 Show, “Tapped Out: Words About the Water Crisis.” Here is a brief description of the show:
Tapped Out: Words About The Water Crisis
On April 25, 2009, we presented Tapped Out: Words About The Water Crisis at Bowery Poetry Club. This show premiered new works about the privatization of water, the dangers facing freshwater, and the growing scarcity of this precious resource. Poets featured were Tara Bracco, Erica R. DeLaRosa, Andy Emeritz, Frantz Jerome, Angela Kariotis, Dot Portella, and Jonathan Walton. Tapped Out marked our seventh annual show.
