Community Writers Collective Action #2

For our second collective action, the Community Writers Collective performed a poem as part of GLOBOFLOʻs Alterna APEC “Forum (to) Festival” held on 6 Novemeber 2011, at the University of Hawaiʻi, Manoa, Art Auditorium.

It was a wonderful event that featured many artist/activists directly & indirectly involved with resisting the world order that APEC is creating. Hereʻs a flyer for the event and its participants:

The poem we performed, titled “Human Microphone,” collaged some of our membersʻ words with words from poems by Martin Espada, Mahealani Perez-Wendt, Haunani-Kay Trask, and Joy Harjo. The form of our performance aimed to capture the spirit of the “human microphone” that has been essential for the Occupy/DeOccupy movement, as well as for the poetry readings that have emerged as part of the movement.

I want to thank the Collective Action Group #2 for volunteering their time & talent to this event: Claire Gearen, David Kealiʻi, Brandy Nalani McDougall, Noʻu Revilla, and Lyz Soto. I also want to thank Professor Jaimey Hamilton for organizing the Festival.

Here are some pictures from the event:
