Maricopa County Community Action Team Spoken Word Event
November 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join Opportunities for Youth and the Maricopa County Community Action Team (MCCAT) for our first annual Spoken Word Event. This is a FREE event that provides a platform for valley youth to stand up and tell their stories.
The Opportunities for Youth MCCAT is passionate about furthering the development of young adults. We noticed there was a need for youth voice so, we put together several spoken word workshop to develop their passion. These young leaders will be presenting what they have learned during the workshop before a live audience at the Phoenix Center for the Arts. This will empower the young leaders to share their passion and voice their opinions amongst their loved ones.
Although this is a free event, we are asking attendees to donate new undergarment/sock (adults sizes) to benefit the Valley’s homeless youth population. Please bring your donations with you to the event.
Valley Artist, Francisco “Enuf” Garcia will also be donating a variety of pieces for the Art Raffle, and tickets can be purchased with undergarments/socks or cash donations. He will also have artwork for purchase.
This event will also include an open mic session, but spots are limited, so please let us know if you are interested ahead of time. Light refreshments will also be provided.
