APIA Spoken Word and Poetry Summit

The Workshop is pleased to support the 4th Biennial APIA Spoken Word and Poetry Summit! The APIA Spoken Word and Poetry Summit is the largest national gathering of APIA spoken word artists, performers, writers, community leaders and arts educators. It is a three-day event with a mission to challenge the often peripheral and passive roles the artist is branded within the APIA community and the arts community at-large and to acknowledge the arts as a critical, elemental component in building, empowering and transforming tool for our community and our selves.

Friday: Family Showcase @ the Workshop
Saturday: Summit Workshops and Panels @ University Settlement Community Houston Center, Community Showcase @ Judson Memorial Church
Sunday: Family and Community Meetings @University Settlement Community Houston Center
