We EXPRESS our truths and feelings. We EXPOSE those truths and feelings, which usually address social, cultural, political, and/or personal issues. Then we IGNITE or inspire our audience to make a difference in their communities, show concern and support for matters that affect them both directly and indirectly, live their truths out loud, follow their dreams. And overall, become a better version of themselves.
To express our inner truths and feelings as a way to heal
To express academic subjects in a way that is easily absorbed
To express difficult truths and ignite others to do the same
To expose brilliance and ignite others to be brilliant
To expose people to insight, bravery, and vulnerability
To expose taboo issues and buried history for the education of all
To expose the past, presenting a future that transcends the issues of today
To ignite the passion from within and be the change we wish to see
To ignite an inner fire in our sleeping leaders who will shape the future
To ignite those in the shadows and be a beacon of hope
To ignite the voice of the unheard
About the Movement
Power 2 The Poetry is a performing arts LLC specializing in spoken word poetry. We promote freedom of expression, and provide a platform for underrepresented demographics in our community including but not limited to: people of color, LGBTQ+, women, youth, people with different abilities, people with mental health issues, etc. Raising awareness to social, cultural, political, and personal issues. Addressing topics which cultivate crucial and courageous conversations. Empowering our audience to engage in dialogue and action for meaningful change. We are “Warriors of Light” on a mission to express, expose, and ignite!
Power 2 The Poetry is a movement providing a platform for all voices. Fostering a climate of culture, diversity, and inclusion. Marginalized groups constantly deal with inequalities such as oppression, discrimination, racism, and prejudice. This is unacceptable! We take responsibility for the disparities in our community by creating opportunities for positive and necessary change while inspiring others to do the same. We are edutainers (educators and entertainers), leaving people inspired, empowered, and educated. Walking away with newly discovered insight, knowledge, and consciousness. Opening hearts to truths that are regularly ignored. We are a megaphone for those in the community whose voices are silenced and pushed aside. Power 2 The Poetry advocates for what is fair, true, real, and right. We refuse to be silent. Remember your voice is a powerful tool. So, use it!
