    DYN is proud to lend our support to Youth Speak's amazing annual international youth spoken word festival, Brave New Voices.

    Each year, close to 50 teams of youth poets come from around the world to not only participate in an amazing slam competition, but also join in on and lead workshops, youth summit's and more. This year's BNV festival will be in DYN's hometown of Chicago! DYN has been working closely with the BNV team to lend our support in anyway we can. Look out for DYN students on the ground this year producing a video documentary and mixtape with BNV teams! We'll also be launching a BNV social network to connect this one of a kind convergence of youth artists before, during and after the festival.

    We'll post more as summer approaches on how you can be involved in this year's fest. In the meantime, make sure to check out the new HBO SERIES airing NOW on last year's festival!

    We need as many people as possible to get behind what these young people are doing, so make sure you click here to see what you can do to spread the word about BNV!
