ACP Arts Ink provides a platform for the creative arts through poetry, spoken word, and other aspects of oral interpretation to foster an outlet of artistic expression, self-esteem, and social awareness.
Our program will provide local poetry slams competitions in New Jersey and enter slam winners into national and regional poetry slam competitions throughout the country. Also, it will provide “poetry open mics” throughout the community as a form of open expression.
We will coordinate with school districts throughout New Jersey to give teens a platform to write and perform poetry, and educate them in the art of slam poetry. The ultimate goal in this is to form teen slam teams and develop camaraderie among students from different economic, ethnic, and social backgrounds.
