2002 Dialogue Through Poetry Week. In order to create dialogue among civilizations, the coordinators contacted reading coordinators, editors, poets, and poetry lovers around the world and asked them to setup readings in their cities to support this program. To visit the coordinators at the main Dialogues site, click here:
The Coordinators: "During the last week in March 2001, there were over 200 readings in 150 cities around the world. The readings were open to everyone. We are continuing the program and are organizing readings for the week of 17, March 2002--Dialogue Through Poetry Week. In addition, that week includes UNESCO's World Poetry Day."

"What would it take to get 150 cities around the world to each hold a poetry reading on the same evening?  It took Larry Jaffe.  This cat Larry managed to organize a bunch of noncommittal poets from around the world into a coordinated event sponsored by the United Nations.  Along with Ram Devinini he started the United Nations Dialogue of Poetry."
