~Spoken Word as a Tool for Democratic Change~

What is Spoken Word?

Spoken word is a form of poetry that engages the audience with a high-energy performance. It provides a voice for a wide array of people, and is often engaged in by individuals with oppressed social identities. The performances are often raw yet eloquent and the audience demonstrates active listening and responds with encouragement in the form of snapping and vocal utterances.
