One Mic Open is a grass roots slam and open mic series geared towards bridging the gap between adults and youth, by having both share their work in a safe space. The ultimate goal of the slam series is to put together a six person team to compete at an international festival called Brave New Voices, sponsored by YouthSpeaks.

One Mic Open was created to reach the youth of not only Cleveland, but surrounding suburbs, in an effort to create a sense of community among the youth in North East Ohio. By sharing their talents, not limited only to poetry, at the open mic, we feel that they are creating a space in which they are free to be themselves in the most complete sense.
