Louder than a Bomb MA Youth Poetry Slam Showcase
May 6, 2017 at 7:00 pm–9:30 pm
The annual Louder than a Bomb Massachusetts Youth Poetry Slam Festival Finals Showcase will be taking place at Boston’s historic Strand Theatre on Saturday May 6th. Sponsored in part by the Boston Cultural Council, Mass L.E.A.P. (Literary Education & Performance) presents an evening of powerful spoken word poetry performances from teens throughout the state, as we crown a state championship team, showcase brilliant young writers and honor award winners. The showcase is the culminating event of a month long festival that helps create spaces for youth to raise their voice! Modeled after the revolutionary Chicago festival, Louder than a Bomb is celebrating it’s 6th year of working to bring young people together across socio-economic, geographical & cultural lines.
This dynamic, engaging art form will make poetry come alive on stage! Now more than ever, the voices of young people need to be heard, whether poems about politics, family, neighborhoods or relationships, these teens ring truth with every stanza! Audience members will be treated to a diverse array of performers and may even be called upon to serve as a judge for the team championship!
