Words by the Water is a new program comprised of weekly sessions where young people (12-24) come and learn to express themselves through oratory art forms such as spoken word, rap, singing, etc in a positive peer-supported environment. The program focuses on teaching writing and performing techniques while creating a space for youth to perform newly created works. Words by the Water also incorporates guest presenters and speakers from the oratory arts world (such as spoken word artists, rappers, poets, mcs, beatboxers, etc) who come on specially organized nights to help inspire the up and coming talent pool of regular project participants.
As a key part of the program the first Tuesday of the month is dedicated to open mic nights. This is an opportunity for participants in the program to showcase what they have been working on in and outside of the program. Open Mic nights are open to a wider community allowing for the creation of an intergenerational storytelling space.
