New Orleans Youth Open Mic kicks off fall season at Ashe


Now in its fourth year, the New Orleans Youth Open Mic begins its fall season Oct. 18 at Ashe Cultural Arts Center, opening a space for young people*to showcase their voice, whether in poetry, prose, rap or other mediums.

Organizers noticed a pattern in poetry scenes around the U.S. where "the best adult scenes have well-supported youth scenes and poetry pipelines," says cofounder*Mwende Katwiwa.*While New Orleans has developed space for the success of local adult writers and slam poetry competitors,*"we don?t necessarily have the next generation set up to do the same," she says.

Sign up begins at 6 p.m. and the events start at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18, Nov. 15, and Dec. 13 at Ashe Cultural Arts Center (1712 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd.).
