Street poets partner to celebrate the 20th Anniversay of the Historic Japanese Plaza in PDX

Street Root Poetry Editor Brian Feist (who is responsible for bringing more street poetry back into the paper)  along with vendor Leo Rhodes are taking part in a collaborative  poetry project with the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center, Sisters Of The Road, and Transition Project Inc.

The poetry project is being facilitated by local poet and professor Kaia Sand and will support the 20th Anniversary of the Historical Japanese Plaza on the Waterfront.

In June, the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center will bring together the poetry along with other published works and publish a book and create posters with the poetry and hang them around the Old Town Chinatown neighborhood.

Today marked the first day of the project. SR will be updating readers on the project as it moves forward.
