For this event, BONK! is partnering with Racine Revitalization Partnership and Treasures of Uptown. Treasures of Uptown is a street festival brought together with nonprofits and area businesses that will include live music, dance performances, local restaurants, food trucks, and open doors to the unique curiosities offered by local merchants. The event will also launch The Vital Art Project for a 30 day run in pop-up art galleries throughout the neighborhood.
This month’s event will be part of 100 Thousand Poets for Change, a grassroots organization that brings communities together to call for environmental, social, and political change within the framework of peace and sustainability. An event that began primarily with poet organizers, 100 Thousand Poets for Change has grown into an interdisciplinary coalition with year round events which includes musicians, dancers, mimes, painters and photographers from around the world.
