This summer Iconoclast Artists is hosting Speak Up Speak Out (SUSO), a regional youth poetry slam, in Galveston, Texas. We are expecting teams from Houston, Dallas, Austin, Greensboro NC and Tampa, FL. SUSO provides a platform for young artists to speak and be heard while connecting with youth from other communities.

Iconoclast Artists' Galveston Program Director is hosting a Birthday & Poetry fundraising event on April 6th @ 7:00pm at The Roof Garden, Galveston to raise money for SUSO during National Poetry Month. The goal for this fundraiser is $7,000 to cover event costs and lodging for participating teams. The Birthday + Poetry Fundraiser will include a night of poetry from some of Houston and Galveston’s most talented poets as well as a silent auction.
