Every September the Board of Directors and Associates of The Haiku Foundation are sent a survey. Their responses help to guide our growth and direction. We’d like to broaden our input, and so we’ll be asking you to respond to a series of questions, one per week, over the next half-year. Your replies will be weighed in our assessment of our performance.
Today’s question: International Haiku Poetry Day
International Haiku Poetry Day, April 17, held its first iteration (as National Haiku Poetry Day) in 2012 and was a great success, with gatherings in 17 locations amassing more than a thousand participants. A dozen venues celebrated the 2013—2014 events, with many repeats. In 2015 IHPD was inaugurated, featuring two new projects: the HaikuLife Haiku Film Festival, and the Earthrise Rolling Haiku Collaboration, both of which drew great numbers of participants. Local events were held in a dozen communities, as well as a handful overseas. Information and archives of National Haiku Poetry Day can be found on the website.
