Project V.O.I.C.E. (Vocal Outreach Into Creative Expression) is an international movement that celebrates and inspires youth self-expression through Spoken Word Poetry. Conceived in 2004, Project V.O.I.C.E. encourages young people to engage with the world around them and use Spoken Word Poetry as an instrument through which they can explore and better understand their culture, their society, and ultimately themselves. Project V.O.I.C.E. brings together performance, writing, and a supportive environment to inspire youth to recognize that their views are significant, valid, and necessary.
What We Do
Project V.O.I.C.E. is dedicated to Entertainment, Inspiration, and Education.
- Ideally, our first step is to provide a live performance of Spoken Word Poetry to an audience that may or may not be familiar with this art form. We present a variety of subjects from the personal to the political, and draw from traditions of storytelling, stand up comedy, song, and lyricism. We want to generate curiosity and enthusiasm about Spoken Word, and present this form of expression as a relevant means of communication.
- Given the opportunity to be inside the classroom, we conduct workshops that combine multi-media, live performance, and personal instruction in the art of Spoken Word Poetry. We introduce the basics of writing and performing through exercises and critiques, teaching by example and hands-on participation. By showcasing other Spoken Word Poets, we explore the different styles that this art form embraces. We have worked with novices as well as experienced poets and can easily tailor our workshops based on the participants' age, background, experience, and group size.
