ICA Slam Team- 2015


The ICA Teen Slam Team is devoted to bringing new and experienced youth poets from Boston schools together to create through the contemporary artistic form of performance poetry.
This team will meet at least once a week to work on their writing and performance as solo and collaborative artists.
This team will learn from the galleries and special events at the ICA throughout the whole year to create a variety of poems and poetic presentations. We will create at least three live performances, as well as collaborate with artists in other media.


  • Collaboration with other youth arts organizations
  • Involvement in an ICA teen night as part of a performance to be envisioned and created by the group
  • A team feature Saturday, January 10th 2015 at More Than Words Bookstore and “If You Can Feel It, You Can Speak It's” “Next to the Mic” poetry series
