Doors at 7:30
Show around 8

Regina Word Up Youth is Regina’s only youth-specific spoken word performance series.

A Youth Stage is an opportunity to share work with our peers and greater community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for youth (14-22) who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage.

After the youth stage, we host a community stage for ALL AGES. A community stage is an opportunity to share work with our community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for folks who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams.
