Film Screening - Louder Than a Bomb

Time: 7:00 PM
Place: Antioch College, AUNE Community Room, Keene, NH
Price: Free
Ages: older crowd

Presented by Teri Young, AUNE Adjunct Faculty Member in the Department of Education.
Louder Than a Bomb is a documentary that chronicles the stereotype-confounding stories of four teams of high schoolers as they prepare for and compete in the world’s largest youth poetry slam. Every year, more than six hundred teenagers from over sixty Chicago area schools gather for a competition known as "Louder Than a Bomb."

Founded in 2001, it is the only event of its kind in the country—a youth poetry slam built from the beginning around teams. Rather than emphasize individual poets and performances, the structure of the event demands that kids work collaboratively with their peers, presenting, critiquing, and rewriting their pieces. To succeed, teams have to create an environment of mutual trust and support. For many kids, being a part of such an environment—in an academic context—is life-changing.
