The World’s Premier Youth Poetry Event
Brave New Voices is the only festival of its kind. Every year, over 500 young poets and the nation’s leading artists convene in a different U.S. city for four days of arts education, performance, and civic engagement.
Brave New Futures Convening
The purpose of this Convening is to come together as a field of value-based organizations, artists and cultural leaders to imagine a new national vision for the spoken word and youth voice field, as well as tap into our collective imaginations to dream about what a future Brave New Voices Festival might look like. We may be gathering in person for only a day, but we expect this to be an impactful time together filled with rich conversation, authentic reflections, and share a few delicious family-style meals in San Francisco's culinary mecca.
