516 WORDS: 505 Heart Murmur

presented at 516 ARTS

516 ARTS welcomes youth poets from Warehouse 508 and To The Last Word for the 516 WORDS poetry series in the gallery.  Surrounded by the Heart of the City exhibition, young poets will perform their work. Hosted by Mercedez Holtry and Emily Bjustrom, this event features members of the 2012 and 2013 ABQ UNIDOS slam team, currently ranked fourth in the world, as well as members of the Lobo Slam Team and UNM's representative poetry slam team, and more. 

505 Heart Murmur will showcase poetry written about Albuquerque, and Albuquerque's heart, Downtown. Poets will focus their work on the diseases that plague Downtown, and the healing that is necessary to promote a healthy city. The evening will also feature a small open mic, where Albuquerque residents can speak their words and express their concerns over the growing problems afflicting Albuquerque today.

This event is free and open to the public.
