Random Acts of Poetry & Art Day on February 20, 2015 is an international day of inspiration. As an artistic pay-it-forward movement, our purpose is to spread the joy of the creative process. Wherever you are on this day, please join us in sharing your poems and visual art for all to enjoy!
It’s up to you what you do! A few examples: leave behind free poetry cards or quotes at coffee houses, cafés and libraries; give away mini works of art; donate art prints and poetry books to non-profit organizations or schools; or give away handmade scarves or jewelry. Create, be inspired, and share photos of your Random Acts of Poetry & Art on our Facebook event page. For more information and ideas, please visit the RAPA Facebook page.
Who knows? You could change someone’s day in an instant of art and poetry!

"A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves." ~Amelia Earhart
Looking for ideas for a special gift tag for your art or poetry giveaway? We've got you covered! Here is a sample of what you could do. Sometimes people need to know that they have found FREE art and poetry! This is a png image which can be saved as a pdf for print out, or you can make your own.
Here is an example of my FREE poetry/photography postcard for RAPA Day this year:

This year's RAPA Day theme is: "Philosophy Legacy" - choose a key word or phrase that represents the wisdom you would like to pass on to the next generation of poets and artists! What kind of legacy would you like to leave behind, based on your art? Create something centered around your own words of wisdom.
Here is an example of a pair of my "word philosophy" earrings (Biku Beaded Designs), which I made to give away for RAPA Day. I plan to leave these earrings as a gift at a local coffee house, where I know a lot of writers work. I want other poets/writers to remember to not only be artful in their own writing, but to inspire others to create as well.
Don't forget to share your Random Acts of Poetry and Art, by posting photos on our Facebook page! Thank you for joining the journey!
