Word Power Youth Open Mic & Poetry Slam, hosted by The JVN Project and Overture Center for the Arts, will take place Friday, Dec. 15, at Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa St.
If you are a youth between the ages 13-19, this event is for you. Of course, adults are more than welcome to come watch and support! We kick off the night with an open mic where youth have the opportunity to get on stage and share poetry, music, instrumentation, dance moves, etc. The second part of the night is a two-round poetry slam where students from the Madison area have the chance to work toward winning a spot on the Madison Youth Poetry Slam team, which will be representing at the 2018 Brave New Voices Poetry Festival.
