This year, 8 middle schools were engaged in year-round programming in writing, performance, and story-telling. The programming culminates to a friendly competition style event, in which, 8 teams will compete for Middle School champion. Join us in supporting youth voices from Prince of Wales, Queen Victoria, Billy Green, W.H. Ballard, Lawfield, Memorial City, Pauline Johnson and Mount Hope.
For the last five years, young people in and around LTABC have used the tools of Spoken Word, Hip Hop poetry, and Personal Narrative to transverse the city in new ways, collectively, we have worked to bring communities together, opposing the line and those who wish to keep us apart. We are each others sanc...tuary. Here is a space for ALL STORIES and ALL PEOPLES, we are borderless, we are each other's Nations, welcome to HYP and Louder Than A Bomb Canada.
This year our theme for LTABC is DO THE WRITE THING. The seminal Spike Lee film Do the right thing discusses issues of racism, inequality, gentrification, and community dynamics in challenging and important ways. We hope that LTABC and HYP can be a space for young people to explore these issues and more importantly through compelling writing and performances. We believe that creating platforms for Art and Conversations is key to navigating a changing world with a sense of empathy and justice.
