Sacrificial Poets aka SacPoe is an award-winning spoken word poetry organization that serves middle, high school, and college-aged youth in the Triangle Area of North Carolina. The organization facilitates writing and performance workshops throughout the state and hosts regular youth poetry events. In addition, Sacrificial Poets selects a team of six youth every year to take to the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival (as seen on HBO).
Sacrificial Poets utilizes their own innovative arts education curriculum, known as YouTh ink. Workshops are based on a culturally responsive pedagogy that celebrates learning differences, and is designed to benefit participants in five specific ways: enhance emotional literacy, facilitate identity exploration, refine writing and analytical skills, develop performance and public speaking competency, and build self-confidence. Sacrificial Poets does not empower youth, rather we seek to create diverse, welcoming, and transformative environments where youth can empower themselves.
Sacrificial Poets is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible.
