BAM! Youth Slams' "The Messengers" is proud to announce that they will be representing Toronto, Canada (Team Youth Toronto 2011) at Brave New Voices in San Francisco during the summer!
Brave New Voices is an English-language slam poetry championship that takes place each year in United States. It was founded in 1998 by Youth Speaks, a non-profit organisation from San Francisco promoting youth intellectual and artistic self development. Brave New Voices is the largest youth poetry festival in the world.
We have registered, but we lack to funds to compete. This is where we need your help! We will need to raise $1000 collectively by mid-April and $6000 by June (approximately). Any bit helps, and your contribution will surely be worth it and appreciated. Come to this fun night of poetry featuring the talent artists that will surely bless the mic.
Hosted by Spencer "Coach" Butt
We'll also be doing our best to have chap books ready for purchase, though there will most likely be a limited quantity of those.
The fundraiser will be happening at:
Agincort Baptist Church
37 Glen Watford Drive
Doors open at 6:00, sign ups start at 6:30 and the show starts at 7.
Hope to see you all there!
