This summer from August 7-11 2013 over 1,000 youth poets from all over the world will be convening in Chicago, Illinois for the 16th annual Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Festival. For the fifth year in a row, Team Atlanta will be there in full effect! 

 

Atlanta Word Works is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a safe space for young people to express themselves through writing and spoken word poetry. Located in metro-Atlanta, youth ranging from ages 13-19 participate in weekly writing workshops, monthly open mics, and annual youth poetry slams. This summer a group of six dynamic teenagers will represent AWW and the city of Atlanta at Brave New Voices, an international platform for youth poets to perform and fellowship with one another.

 

But we need your help...

 

In order to attend Brave New Voices we need to raise $2500 by July 30th! There are only 50 spots for teams and Team Atlanta's invitation is only contingent upon us raising the money to register and get there. Please contribute to the arts, to youth in arts, and to the Atlanta spoken word movement by donating $5, $10, $20, or whatever you can give from your heart.

 

Thank you for your support! And please be sure to check out "The Unspoken Word," a documentary about Team Atlanta's journey to Brave New Voices 2012 in San Francisco.
