100,000 Poets for Change with Dance and Yoga
Hot Poets presents A Moveable Feast, a fusion experience
that integrates poetry, yoga, and ecstatic dance. It
will be relaxed and fun, and people of all levels can
participate to the degree that they are able. This is a way to experience poetry in a
playful and communal manner.
There will be an open mic with extemporary yoga postures
to follow each poem, so come dressed comfortably, bring
water and a yoga mat, and be prepared to have a great
timeóand if you are a poet, bring your poetry for the
open mic. For the ecstatic dance component, you might
want to bring scarves.
Please bring haiku and short poems to read. We will
integrate your poetry with the yoga and dance components
of the program.

100 Thousand Poets for Change-Houston has participated
in the international movement of 100 Thousand Poets for
change since 2013.
The viewpoints and goals of the various cities and
individual event producers vary greatly, but the
connecting force is for the creative communities of the
world--poets, musicians, artists of all kinds--to come
together to express a desire for a kinder, cleaner and
more just Earth for everyone. Perhaps through these
events, ideas will become action, and action will create
the sort of change that builds rather than destroys.

Change comes in many forms, and support for those in
need is always a positive change. Houstonís Toiletries
for Families is a nonprofit organization (501c3) that
distributes hygiene items to families and individuals
affected by the effects of poverty and disaster.
So, a group of poets and musicians are coming together
for an entertaining night of poetry and music to support
Toiletries for Families as part of the International 100
Thousand Poets for Change. There will be featured poets
and an open mic.

Bring Donations (especially toothpaste, toothbrushes,
feminine hygiene products, diapers) to benefit
Toiletries for Families. However, cash donations are
loved and are MUCH more cost-effective for helping those
in need. 100% of all donations go to the purchase and
shipment of hygiene kits.
Travel-size kits last an estimated 7 to 14 days and
full-size kits last three to 18 months. TFF has
distributed over 25000 hygiene kits within 16 states and
