Say Word! Festival
10,000 Fresh Voices | KFAI
What started as an after-school poetry club, has evolved into a competitive youth poetry festival. On Saturday, May 7, a spoken word festival called Say Word! took place at the Minneapolis Central Library. The one-day event featured dance performances, open mics, workshops, and youth teams competing in a series of poetry slams, aimed at crowning the 2011 Say Word! champions. KFAI producer Katey DeCelle spoke to founders e.g. Bailey and Sha Cage about the event.
