Youth Speaks 2013 Under 21 Open Mic The Under-21 Open Mics are designed as bi-weekly performance “open-houses” for emerging young writers and performers to flex their skills on the mic. Additionally, they establish safe spaces for poets to share work-in-progress and further cultivate their voice. Held in community locations throughout the East Bay and San Francisco, these events are hosted, produced, and promoted by members of Spokes, our Youth Advisory Board, and are always FREE! Come to inspire and be inspired by young artists across the Bay Area performing spoken word, music, dance, and more. No censorship, all love!
