PROGRAMMING

Housed at AS220 (115 Empire St) and New Urban Arts (705 Westminster St), our programming includes:

  • Poetry Shows: Our bi-monthly shows at AS220 include open mics, feature performances by visiting artists, and competitive poetry slams. Anyone can sign up for our open mics and all-ages slams. Youth slams are open to poets who are 19 years old or younger.

  • Writing Workshops: Our bi-monthly youth writing workshops are free and typically taught by a mentor from ProvSlam Staff. They take place before every ProvSlam show at 6pm in New Urban Arts. 

  • National Slams: Every year, we send teams or individual competitors to the National Poetry Slam, the Individual World Poetry Slam, Women of the World poetry slam,  and Brave New Voices international youth festival. Members of these teams receive mentorship and training with a coach, creating new work and building their writing and performance skills.
