Youth Speaks: An Evening of Spoken Word and Entertainment
COAL + ICE has partnered with Youth Speaks on a national spoken word competition on the theme of climate change. In July, at the Brave New Voices International festival in Houston, 15 finalists performed for a panel of judges for a chance to win a trip to San Francisco to visit the exhibition and perform for the San Francisco Bay Area community at COAL + ICE. The five winners will perform their original pieces as part of this evening’s program. Youth Speaks, based in San Francisco, is the most prominent presenter of spoken word in the U.S. overseeing a network of spoken word organizations across the country.
