“From the page to the stage, Miami’s top spoken word artists unite in a super session of beats and rhymes celebrating National Poetry Month. Witness poets transform their words into performances that remind us of the integral role poetry and spoken word play in our culture. Join us for this free, not-to-be-missed evening of verbal expression and inspiration.”
For over 7 years it was my dream to host and curate an all spoken word event at the Arsht Center. A poetic extravaganza featuring South Florida’s top poets on the grand stage! The time is now! The event is here!
Before I could get the word out the Arsht Center’s website reads …
“This performance has reached capacity. There are limited virtual standby registrations available. To sign up for the virtual standby use promo code STANDBY.”
WHAT? WOW! What a blessing. Now more than ever its obvious that our community needs this!
Its going to be great to share the stage with SSF Alumnae Teepop 2008, Terse Chunky Hill 2010, Mori Taiye 2012, Emonde Prosper 2016, and Perla Gonzalez 2019.
This will be my first in person event so I am a little nervous, but super excited nonetheless.
I hope you are on of the early birds who reserved their tickets.
