Kids-TALK CAC Youth Poetry Slam
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Eastern Market Shed 2
Kids-TALK Children’s Advocacy Center, in collaboration with Youth United, is pleased to announce our rescheduled 10th Annual Youth Poetry Slam, to be held on Wednesday, September 30th at the new open air location of Eastern Market Shed 2! Our esteemed MC for the event will be Natasha T. Miller. We are also bringing back a former youth participant, now recording artist, D. Anonymous, for a performance!
With over 8,000 confirmed victims of child abuse and neglect in Wayne County each year, Kids-TALK CAC, a program of The Guidance Center, is dedicated to ending violence against children in our community–but we know the most powerful voices are those of children themselves. Please help us identify area youth to participate in the Youth Poetry Slam. Attached is a flyer with more information and a call for slam poets.
To attend in person, masks and registration are required (capped at 100 participants, per Governor Whitmer’s Executive Order) using our Eventbrite link: bit.ly/poetryslam2020
The slam will also be live streamed on the Kids-TALK CAC Facebook page for those viewing from home: www.facebook.com/Kids.talk.cac/live/
If you have any questions, would like to register a poet, or want to get involved, please contact Kids-TALK CAC Supervisor, Lacea Zavala at: LZavala@guidance-center.org or 734-785-7705 x7291.
