Youth Speaks

Spoken word, immense creativity, and aspiring young artists. These are the characteristics of a poetry slam. In the culmination of the 2014 season, Arts Corps presents the annual Youth Speaks Seattle Grand Slam. A group of 12 finalists will compete one last time in a showcase of the next generation of Seattle poets. The finalists will perform all-original works of love, loss, resistance, and survival. Five talented poets will emerge from this judged competition, moving on to represent Seattle at the 2014 International Brave New Voices Festival in Philadelphia. The event is hosted by Grammy Award-winner and YSS alum Hollis Wong-Wear. Youth Speaks is a collective for young aspiring poets which offers mentoring programs, year-long slams, open mic nights, and workshops in local schools.

Presented by: Youth Speaks.
Tickets: Pre-sale tickets are $8 for youth and $18 for adults; after March 7, tickets are $10 for youth and $20 for adults.
Doors open: 6:20 p.m.
