Central San Pedro Neighborhood Council is proud to have introduced a pilot project of Poetry Corners on August 1, 2019. This temporary pilot program featured poetry written by local and nationally recognized poets on city street corners in downtown San Pedro at the intersections of 6th & Mesa and 7th & Mesa.
The poems were a featured stop of The San Pedro Waterfront Arts District Art Walk Tour on their monthly walk on August 1.
Councilmember Joe Buscaino was on hand for the Art Walk and invited folks to join in the evening celebration, “Central San Pedro Neighborhod Council, thank you for your leadership!”
This fun project brought together poets and the community out savoring an evening walk with music and food in the heart of San Pedro. CeSPNC continues to seek ways to inspire and engage the community.
