BRAVE NEW VOICES FESTIVAL
BNV 2020 is Virtual!
The Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival, powered by Youth Speaks, is the only festival of its kind. Every year, over 500 young poets, their mentors, and the nation’s leading artists and cultural workers convene in a different U.S. city for 4-5 days of arts education, artistic expression, and civic engagement. This year is our first year producing a virtual festival giving us the ability for even more youth to participate and a bigger audience.
Congratulations to the 2020 Brave New Voices Slam Champions: Team St. Louis. 2 years in a row!
