The Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center presents a
Spoken Word Virtual Showcase. Make your voice heard!

We are looking to create a diverse cohort of college students from different religious, spiritual and secular backgrounds to come together to participate in a series of five creative workshops culminating in a final spoken word showcase.  Under the facilitation of nationally touring artist and educator, Joe Davis, students will get to know each other, develop community guidelines, and have a crash course in the history and culture of spoken word and slam poetry.  Students will be empowered to reflect on their own personal stories, and to work together to create poetry around their unique identities and backgrounds.  No prior experience in poetry, spoken word, or performance art is required.
