Youth Poet Laureate Showcase at Pro Arts Gallery!
Introducing the 2014 Oakland Youth Poet Laureate finalists!
NOTE: THIS EVENT IS AT PRO ARTS GALLERY, 150 FRANK OGAWA PLAZA
These poet all-stars have made it through a rigorous first round of judging and one of them will be chosen to represent Oakland as the next laureate! You can watch their words as they burst onto the scene at Turn Down for What: Oakland Youth Amplify, part of Beast Crawl, the East Bay's literary festival.
These young bards will offer you Love, Justice and Oakland like you've never heard before! Hosted by OPL, Youth Speaks, Pro Arts and more than a dozen community partners.
