SWAN Spoken Soul Showcase Vol.10

SpokenSoul_E-Annoucement640w

Celebrating 10 ears of SWAN Day Miami

As the Festival’s signature event, the Showcase provides a evening of live musical and poetry performances, art and photography exhibits, and the chance to meet and mingle with the artists and other art aficionados. Take in performances by vocalists and spoken word artists, and explore the work of photographers and visual artists—15 featured women artists in total. Featured artists this year are all SSF alumni, such as filmmaker Omilani, who will be screening her short documentary, “Latinegras,” about the black Latina experience; and vocalist and radio personality Lyricists Stichiz, from iHeartradio’s 103 The Beat, who will put on a performance the likes of which you’ve never seen. This free and open to the public annual event progressively pushes women featured artists to BRING IT, resulting in a truly unique event.
