What is Poesia Para La Gente?

Poesia Para La Gente (Poetry for the People) is a program that brings poetry to the people of the community, in non-traditional places. Some of these places have been affected, in one way or another, by economical hardship or various forms of social stigmas. All locations are unique in providing a safe setting for uninhibited artistic expression.

Poesia Para La Gente is a program of the Avenue 50 Studio’s monthly La Palabra Poetry. The program has been made possible by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation.

WHY THE LA METRO?

Our goal is to share poetry with the community, outside of our choir and into the streets in order to encourage, nurture, and stimulate artistic expression every which way we can, and every where we can. By providing a welcoming, and non-traditional public platform for sharing the power of the spoken word, we hope to stimulate cultural understanding within the diverse population of the North East Los Angeles area…and beyond.
