Hear Here Poetry is a non-profit organization in Colorado Springs that encourages people to listen, write, and share with a focus on activating and amplifying youth voices from the region. The organization sponsors regular community events and is actively involved in poetry education and performances in schools with young people.
Founded in 2011, Hear Here Poetry serves the Pikes Peak region as a catalyst for creative and holistic community. More than time spent with microphone and pen, Hear Here digs deep and plants seeds to foster inclusive, intergenerational and life-sharing networks to ensure the heritage of poetry, the future of spoken word, and the culture of slam remain vital, visible and deeply integrated with the sustainable fabrics of the region.
