100 THOUSAND POETS FOR CHANGE
is a community action event which will include readings, demonstrations, and concerts happening simultaneously throughout the world in the name of poetry and change. For more information on this project and to take a look at some of the other events happening, visit: www.bigbridge.org/100thousandpoetsforchange/.

In Milwaukee, we have envisioned a Poetry Walk/Reading for Justice & Community Action. Poets will gather at 6:30pm at the south end of the Holton Street Viaduct Marsupial Bridge (stairs at Van Buren Avenue and Brady Street near Trocadero) and will begin marching at 7pm first over the footbridge to the Joshua Glover Memorial Plaque at Booth and Glover Streets, then northeast through Kilbourn Park, north on Bremen St. to Locust St., and west on Locust St. to Woodland Pattern Book Center (720 E. Locust).

Our goal is to showcase the diverse stories, voices and strategies of our communities in Milwaukee and to continue to build together and dream up the type of street, neighborhood, city, state and world that we want to live in.
    The reading schedule:
  • 3 slots to begin the event at the gathering spot: Brady and Van Buren end of Marsupial Bridge
  • 3 slots walking along the Marsupial Bridge and east to the stairwell.
  • 3 slots at the Joshua Glover Memorial Plaque at the top of the stairs (Glover and Booth)
  • 13 slots walking through Kilbourn Park and north on Bremen St. to Locust St
  • 2 slots walking east on Locust Street to Woodland Pattern
