Speak Up Speak Out: Regional Youth Poetry Slam in Galveston


This summer, Iconoclast Artists will host Speak Up Speak Out (SUSO) an annual regional youth poetry slam, previously hosted by Mic Check. 

Our goal is to create platforms for young artists to speak and be heard while connecting with youth from other communities. Speak Up Speak Out invites youth from cities throughout the United States to perform and compete with original works, in preparation for the international youth slam, Brave New Voices. 

This year’s Speak Up Speak Out event will be held Saturday, June 22, in Galveston, Texas. All events are free and open to the public.
