AWESOME CREATORS :: 100,000 POETS FOR CHANGE :: GREECE EDITION, with ORGANIZER NANA NESTOROS
Nestoros has great hope for the future of this project, and was happy to describe how the events of 100,000 Poets for Change have grown and matured since their inception,
“creating a spinning core of creative ideas expanding around the world, gradually bombarding humans not with bombs of course, but with words of love and peace, compassion and encouragement, emphasizing on the POWER OF THE PEOPLE.”
Echoing and confirming Shelley’s words so many years ago, wherein he states that poets are the “unacknowledged legislators of the world,” and that “the most unfailing herald, companion, or follower of the awakening of a great people to work a beneficial change in opinion or institution, is poetry,” Nestoros expressed her deep belief that
“100TPC is a movement with a real potential for uniting people at an international level,”
and it is for this reason that we, and all the organizers
“do our best to push that lever of change towards equality and peace,” as she puts it. “Guns can only destroy, after all. But words can create visions and visions are ultimately the first step to create the reality of our future.”
AMEN, sister. Amen.
For more information on the Volos events, please see their page on the 100TPC Blog, and check out videos (mostly in Greek, with some music) on their YouTube Channel. The Greek organizers were very active in the creation of posters not only for local but global use, featuring design and art by Milos Odysseas.
