Poets For Peace

Join us in Studio D at SBCAST on Saturday, December 16th, 7-10 pm for Poets For Peace. 
Poets For Peace is a collective movement to combat the negative impacts of the Western war machine through dialogue and storytelling. This installment will be fronted by LA artists Omar Pitras Waqar, Ilana Issa Alazzeh and traveling poet Marshall James Kavanaugh. This event is organized at SBCAST by Maiza Hixson.  

Omar Pitras Waqar and Ilana Issa Alazzeh are Gardens For The Lush, an English Ghazal-style poetic collaboration with anarcho-sufi notions for love and dissent accompanied by sitar, vocals, and electric tanpuri. Marshall James Kavanaugh has spent the last few years traveling the country, collecting haikus from the expansive big skies found out west and fast-paced cities back east, most recently publishing a collection of essays from his experiences with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock in North Dakota.
