The 6th Annual Poems Under the Dome is a celebration of National Poetry Month inside San Francisco's City Hall! For Poets, by Poets!
Poems Under the Dome celebrates San Francisco's poetic history in the City whose beating heart is the Arts!
Poets from all over the City come to City Hall, and read their favorite poem or perform one of own their at San Francisco’s largest open mic poetry event inside City Hall.
Poems Under the Dome happens April 27, 2011, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m in the North Light Court of City Hall, #1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place. The event begins at 5:30 with a poem by Diane di Prima, San Francisco’s Poet Laureate.
This unusual opportunity to express one’s self in such a unique setting always proves to be popular! Poems Under the Dome started six years ago when Diamond Dave Whitaker sat atop a hill, saw the glistening City Hall dome and exclaimed, “We need to do a poetry open mic THERE!”
The Mayor and the Board of Supervisors agree to let us use the North Light Court every year, but this does not cover all costs! Our goal is to cover these additional costs that City Hall cannot waive, like printing, insurance, and labor. In the past we have held fundraisers and been sponsored by local businesses. This year we would like sponsorship from our greater community to support this event that celebrates the poetic history of San Francisco!
