Local and International Artists. . . Stay Tuned In “More To Come”
October was a positively supportive month of Peace poems and presentations at UBC, SFU, major libraries in Vancouver with visiting international poets reading and film makers showing their talents creations. World Poetry Cafe as a website that has many audio and visual sections from the Tuesday night C0-0p Radio show— 9 to 10 pm that can be accessed for 6 months after! A super showcase for writers around the world to take part in and listen as an encouragement in this violent world in which we exist!
Thank you so much!
I was following the festival through your posts on Facebook. It was so exciting. Although I was not physically present, but the palpable excitement, series of events, dignitaries you introduced, made me feel I was there at least in spirit.
Your commitment, enthusiasm, dedication and faith in the immense possibility of human mind to rise above prejudice, collectively work for peace truly seems within reach what with such initiatives.
Each one of us can make a difference. Honestly world needs to go green, without borders.
a lotus for you and your team
Thank you so much, Mamta. I appreciate your support so much. Hugs, Araidne
