The Tucson Youth Poetry Slam (TYPS) is made possible in part by generous support from:
Bentley's House of Coffee & Tea, The Crossroads Collaborative, Womens Foundation of Southern Arizona & UNIDAS, UA Poetry Center, Tucson Pima Arts Council.
The Tucson Youth Poetry Slam is a program of Spoken Futures, Inc., whose mission is to widen access to the literary arts and community engagement for young people across Southern Arizona. Through dynamic competitions such as the Tucson Youth Poetry Slam and innovative social justice programs such as Liberation Lyrics, Spoken Futures creates youth-centered spaces. Through dedication, irreverence and love we use poetry as a tool to dream tomorrow, honor yesterday and live today.
