Unified: Verses & Vibes Showcase

A competition free space for Bay Area youth teams to performing original work.

A select number of teams (up to 5) will represent schools and community sites from throughout San Francisco, Oakland, and the Greater Bay Area in this year’s Unified Showcase. We will be offering a prize of $500 per selected team to compensate young people for their art and the value they bring to Youth Speaks spaces.

This festival is all about allowing youth a space to showcase, perform, connect and spit their truth in community with other youth artists throughout the Bay Area. This showcase will take place during our annual MC Olympics event on Friday May 24th from 6-8pm at Brava Theater in San Francisco. Come through to spit, witness, and have a great time!
