Join us for a celebration of poetry and movement!

In 2016, we asked King County residents to share their original poetry with us, all on the theme of water. It’s a vital part of our region and our world, so how does it shape us and move us daily?

After receiving more than 1,600 submissions, we’re thrilled to kick off a year of poetry on transit throughout King County, and online! Hear poems from more than 30 of the poets themselves in a variety of languages and experience live music and dance performances from these incredible artists:

Ethio Girls
Hengda Dance Academy
Jourdan Imani Keith
Kiana and Milvia
Gabriel Teodros
Native Jazz Trio

From Jourdan Imani Keith, our Poet Planner and event host: “Water moves through us, connects us—across beliefs and continents, through ancestral memories, stories, and the rain that falls on us. Your body of water is part of the water cycle. Bring your cloudy, rainy, river self to the launch party of Poetry on Buses 2017!”

This celebration is free and open to all ages. RSVP and invite your friends and family on Facebook!
