Street Poets is committed to building a community that brings together different racial, ethnic and socio- economic segments of the city around the transformational power of the creative process. We host regular open-mic gatherings at Eco-Logical Art Gallery in Los Angeles. These events showcase the poetic voices emerging from our community while creating a space in which emotional openness and honesty are not only encouraged, but celebrated. In addition, each December, we host an annual “Seeing in the Dark” Winter Solstice Celebration and public performance.
