Are you a high school or college student who wants to be a writer? Or just someone who’s ever wanted to grab the mic? Come join two incredible artists as they show you the ropes of performance and spoken word poetry. YaliniDream artfully weaves her spoken word with music and dance, while Kilusan Bautista mixes hip hop and theater using his poetry and martial arts skills. They will be your guides as you find the artist in yourself, raise your voice, and make your words shine.
This is a FREE workshop open to all high school students. All are welcome, so bring a friend! Snacks will be served!
