Poetry in the Windows

Poetry in the Windows invites three guest curators to help Pangea curate over twenty poets to take part. The poems will be gathered in response/relationship to the ongoing Uprising, Movement for Black Lives, global pandemic and  visions/struggle for a society transformed from it’s racist, sexist, colonial, anti-immigrant, anti-LBGTQ, earth hating roots. The poems will be installed by Pangea in the windows of businesses along Lake Street from Bde Maka Ska to the Mississippi using large printed clings. This project will connect poets, independent businesses and the public together in mutual support.  

Pangea knows poetry is vital for sustaining us through such tender and dangerous times and is also a way to push conversations and ideas forward and back to ancient knowing. The Poems will go up around Summer Solstice and stay up through the winter of 2022. There will be a free public reading with most of the poets on July 11, 2021 at the outside space next to Moon Palace Books.  Poets will be announced soon. Meet our amazing Guest Curators! 

“When I began to listen to poetry, it’s when I began to listen to the stones, and I began to listen to what the clouds had to say, and I began to listen to other. And I think, most importantly for all of us, then you begin to learn to listen to the soul, the soul of yourself in here, which is also the soul of everyone else.”
