The Hub of Spoken Word,
Slams and Urban Poetry
in Puerto Rico
Home for live music, spoken word, open mic cafe and eco-friendly bar, is what we intend to be but until we do open up, we’re bringing our Open Mic events to you! YUP, we’ve bootstrapped the initiative because our Poets’s voices is our power! Subscribe to hear all about our #VocesShowcaseSeries! Check out our weekly updated Blog and join our Poets Corner where you can share your poems with the community.
Puerto Rico’s First Slam Poetry Team
The idea behind this “Voces Showcase Series Poetry Slams” is that at each regional slam (we take the Slam “road trip” throughout the Island) poets (anyone with something to say) compete. At each event there is a winner whom will be qualified for the FINAL Grand Slam in June 2017 at El Teatro Victoria Espinosa in Santurce.
But this is more than just a competition! It is our duty as artists, poets to use our voice. It’s our responsibility to awaken entire communities with Poetry and we can use this vehicle to invoke them to action! Puerto Rico needs us and the time for change is now! This is what Spoken Word and Poetry Slams is about.
