Be Heard 2017

Through five preliminary and two semifinal bouts, Minnesota poets ages 13 to 19 told their stories, shared their art, and reaffirmed the importance of speaking up and speaking out, now more than ever. For this event, the final 12 poets will perform their most powerful work, competing for a chance to join the 2017 Be Heard cohort and represent Minnesota at the 20th Annual Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival. Reserve your tickets now and experience an unforgettable night of poetry, protest, and possibility.

Be Heard 2017 is presented in partnership with TruArtSpeaks.
