Saturday night I was honored to be invited and to participate in a Live Art & Poetry Slam presented by Artists Nation.
What is a Live Art & Poetry Slam, you ask?
It was an amazing event featuring painting, music, & poetry, not to mention great food at a local eatery ‘What About Kabob’. Several local artists were painting ‘What About Kabob’ while enjoying the event. Later, Tyler’s first Poetry Slam kicked off with poets taking the stage to perform and share their poetry. Reakt!on. pleased the crowd with his unique sounds and there was also an amazing fire dance after dark.
Later on began the Poetry Slam. I had never been to a Poetry Slam before although I had read at what were called Poetry Readings about 20-30 years ago. It was exciting! It was fun! There was a good amount of participation from young to old.
I had a wonderful time and I could tell everyone else did as well. If you ever get a chance to go to one of these or to participate, do it! You will love it!
Word is there will be another held in October. Can’t wait!
