On Saturday April 1st,
BBBSMC hosted author, poet and community builder Kevin Coval for a performance
workshop with our matches. Through creative creation and performance in a safe
space, the workshop empowered Littles to harness tools for self-expression, thus
increasing self-esteem and confidence.
Coval is a talented teaching artist from Young Chicago Authors (YCA), an
organization that transforms the lives of young people by cultivating their
voices through writing, publication and performance education. Matches who registered for the workshop received a complimentary pair of tickets to the LOUDER
THAN A BOMB (LTAB) semi-finals on Sunday, March 12. LTAB is YCA’s signature
annual event that hosts 1,000+ youth poets from all over Chicago for a month of
Olympic-style poetry bouts and workshops where they perform original solo and
group poems in a tournament-style competition.
