StreetPoets at CicLAvia

On CicLAvia Sundays we collectively alter the rhythm of our streets for a day from hustle and bustle to slow flow. It’s why we’re thrilled to have the Mid City-based non-profit Street Poets join us again as a community partner for our June 30 event, CicLAvia—Mid City Meets Pico Union. We make a natural team: where CicLAvia taps into the transformational power of open streets, Street Poets harnesses the power of poetry and music.
