This month’s BONK! performance series will be held on Saturday, September 29th, Held at the George Bray Neighborhood YMCA, 924 Center Street in Racine, BONK! will be at 6:00 p.m. with doors opening at 5:30. Instead of bringing in featured performers, we will have twenty local acts performing their own original work.
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. BONK!s contribution to this global event will be held at the George Bray Neighborhood YMCA, 924 Center Street. Originally the George Bray Neighborhood Center, it reopened its doors in late February of this year as a branch of the Racine Family YMCA.
