Poetry Zone ZA and Soweto Theatre have partnered to present: The Brave Spoken Youth Poetry Mentorship Workshops which run at the Soweto Theatre every last Thursday, of the month at Soweto Theatre.

Supported by the department of Sports, Arts and Culture and the National Arts Council, The Brave Spoken Youth Poetry Mentorship Program aims to create an accessible youth development poetry program that focuses on nurturing young emerging poets.

The program also aims to cultivate a youth spoken word culture as a way of addressing the underrepresentation of young and marginalized voices in South Africa’s spoken word scene.
