Last year I was found myself fortunate to at tend 100,000 Poets and Artists for Change at Silo City. I was not sure what to expect exactly, but by the end of the night I had an entirely new appreciation for spoken word artists and poets, as well as their messages that rang out loud and clear.
The participants were entirely captivating and nothing like I had even seen, heard or anticipated. Each poet was a breath of fresh air in his or her own way. Some were sharply witty, while others were over the top, and still others pulled at the heart string and the depths of the mind. Their voices echoed in the cavernous silos, drawing people to huddle together in the far corners of the concrete city.
All total, hundreds of people came out to see over 130 artists perform in an intimate setting like no other in the world. This is an inspirational event that will change the way that you look at poets, musicians, artists and Buffalo.
2014 is already looking to be bigger and better than last year’s event. Join 100,000 artist and poets from around the world, as they promote social, environmental and political change
