Ferguson Goddam: 100 Thousand Poets

for Change Performance Event

Saturday, September 27 (7-9 p.m.)

OuterSpace Studios

1474 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Chicago, IL  60642

On September 27, 2014, many poets around the world will make their voices heard. To declare the change they’d like to see most in the U.S. and throughout the international community, events are being staged worldwide as part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change.  This will be the fourth year of events originally conceived by poet and Big Bridge editor Michael Rothenberg.

In Chicago, Red Rover Series has asked 25 local poets to participate in a satellite event for 100 Thousand Poets for Change on Saturday, September 27th from 7-9pm at Outer Space Studio in the Wicker Park neighborhood.  Our theme is “Ferguson Goddam.”  Inspired by Nina Simone’s song “Mississippi Goddam,” this night of poetry and activism will address the recent shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

“Ferguson Goddam” is part of the Ninth Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival and Chicago Artists Month. Chicago Calling is a multi-arts collaboration festival; during the Seventh Annual Chicago Calling Arts Festival people in Chicago work with people outside of Chicago — both here in the U.S. and abroad. These collaborations include a range of art forms, such as music, dance, film, literature, and intermedia — and they are prepared or improvised. Some Chicago Calling events involve live feeds between Chicago and other locations.

The 19th Annual Chicago Artists Month highlights the work of hundreds of artists throughout Chicago with performances, exhibitions, open studios, tours and neighborhood art walks. September 27 – October 31, 2014, Chicago Artists Month (CAM) will invite residents and visitors to meet artists and see their work at venues across Chicago. The 2014 theme, “Crossing Borders,” showcases 20 featured programs and artists in neighborhoods ranging from Avondale to Andersonville, Lakeview to Little Village, West Town to Wicker Park and Lawndale to the Loop.

CAM is presented by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events in collaboration with the Chicago Park District and numerous community partners.
