Welland has been a Artistic Den for many decades, yet with such talent coursing through the streets of such a missunderstood city. We artist pop up in ways that is unsuspecting to the civilization of Welland and with a beautiful surprise we immerse the city in such Arts as Music, painting and Poetry!!!
For the past 3 years I have been hosting a Poetry Series in Welland and it has expanded from 1 Cafe “The Black Sheep Lounge” into many Cafes/ Restaurants. Which is a blessing to have such support and Love for Poetry and the Community that Poets, Beatniks and storytellers bring to the city they live in.
Even though the reality of all these Poetry Movements, Starting with the Beat Generation. The Poets has a life of a decade of being in the publics eye. It is a decade of beauty, blessings and bountiful words. It shall move back into the shadows of society, like all things. But as we have Poetry growing and moving though the veins of our cities. We Poets will enjoy the sun for the decade we get to bathe in it and enjoy the city streets we immerse ourselves in to find the muse and inspiration to produce books upon books.
Leaving a stain on society and its many years of changes and progression from 1 Artist Den to the next.
As an Poet. We love this ebb and flow of “fame” and support we receive and the “falling form fame” we gain after years of book releases, reading series and all that we have the honour to touch with our words.
So come on out to the events in your city, support your local artists and enjoy all that culture brings to the forefront of your cities and society: )
2019…. Holds the unknown. Like every new year.
But I can assure you that 2019 will hold a new series of dates that will have Poets and Musicians coming together under one roof. For one cause……to have this world ravished by Peace,,Love and Understanding. As each performance will help open The Doors of Perception and increase the Love and Hope we have for this world and all its beauty hidden in the mundane and expansive existence!!!
