Uptown Open

Providing a vital platform for youth development and engagement, our partnership with Urban Word NYC continues with Uptown Open for a fourth year. This monthly open mic series for teens is a safe, uncensored space for poets, spoken word artists, emcees, scholars and activists to share their powerful and important voices. These events are run by youth, for youth, with youth DJs, youth hosts and a monthly-featured poet.

Co-presented by Urban Word NYC & hosted by the Word Wide Leadership Board
