From our friends at Branta:
We are delighted to present to you the National Youth Poetry Slam – India’s first ever national level poetry slam competition to be held in September 2016. The initiative is going to be an inter-school/college competition and will potentially reach over 2.5 million students and young professionals from 1000+ schools and colleges across the length and breadth of India, making this the world’s largest event of its kind! The Grand Slam of the NYPS will happen in Bangalore, India on September17 and September 18, 2016. The finale will gather over 1500 colleges students and around 250 high school kids at one place for multiple performances, workshops, and sessions with mentors and jury.
Spoken word is the fastest growing cultural phenomenon among the youth. From being a fringe phenomenon, it has now grown to be an unstoppable movement and the strongest medium of expression of young people. It is frequently endorsed and adopted by youth icons like Farhan Akhtar, Kalki Koechlin, Sarah Kay and Monica Dogra to name a few.
