Spirited Young Voices Expressing Their Truth
Our monthly open mic series is run by youth for youth, with youth DJs, hosts, and a monthly-featured poet.
Three years strong, our partnership with Urban Word NYC continues with Uptown Open. This monthly open mic series for teens is a safe, uncensored space for poets, spoken word artists, emcees, scholars and activists to share their powerful and important voices.
Join us March 21 as New York’s hottest teen poets compete in the 15th Annual Urban Word NYC Teen Poetry Slam Prelims to represent New York City at the upcoming Brave New Voices National Teen Poetry Slam in Chicago
FREE for Teens / $5 for Adults
*Arrive early to sign up for the open mic list.
Co-presented by Urban Word NYC & hosted by the Word Wide Leadership Board
