Speak Out for Human Rights Event: Poetry Slam + Open Mic by Human Rights Society UW
Organized by Human Rights Society UW
This poetry slam event will be a safe space for people to share their experiences, performances, and thoughts. The event will thematically focus on human rights issues or experiences but we do not intend to limit the scope of the conversation. Spoken word is a powerful way to not only get people thinking about certain issues or human experiences, but also evoke emotion and get people engaged in a broader dialogue.
During the event, we will also have an open-mic session where we invite individuals or groups to do short pieces on any human rights related issue they are interested in. These performances can be short speeches, blank monologues, musical compositions, or any other form of expression.
We have some incredible performers booked and want to hear your voice. If you are interested in performing for the event (spoken word or open mic), email firstname.lastname@example.org.
