1303 NE 45th St., Seattle, WA 98105, United States
Join Arts Corps and STG on April 13th at the Neptune as youth make literary history in the 2012 Youth Speaks Seattle Poetry Grand Slam. Twelve finalists aged 13-19 will compete for a chance to represent Seattle at the 2012 Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival held this summer in San Francisco. The Youth Speaks Seattle Slam Series, which runs December through April every year, culminates with The Grand Slam. Although a place on the team is at stake, the point is not the points... the point is the POETRY.
Seattle's young poets are among the most powerful writers and performers you'll ever see. The insight, raw honesty, and passion expressed by these artists is unforgettable. The next generation truly can speak for itself. This incredible night will inspire both young and old together long after you leave the theater.
The Grand Slam will be hosted by Geo of Blue Scholars. Features include acclaimed youth breakdancers The Vicious Puppies and others.
Proceeds from the Grand Slam will support Youth Speaks Seattle, which offers writing workshops and performance spaces to encourage self-expression and empowerment among young people of all backgrounds throughout the Seattle and Puget Sound area.
Youth Speaks Seattle is a program of Arts Corps, a leading arts education provider in Seattle.
Tickets: $15 / $10 student w/ ID
