Youth Speak Mentorship Program - Branding + Promotional material Illustration, branding, black and white print poster, and Facebook promo by Chachi. Hosted by the Urban Legends Poetry Collective, Youth Speak is a non-profit volunteer-run free program that is intended for students below the age of 19 to have a place to explore all aspects of spoken word.
Urban Legend Poetry Collective's mandate is to support local, regional and national artists of all genders, races and ages to have a safe space to create and share poetry while simultaneously exposing audiences to professional artists and continuing the honoured tradition of spoken word. Urban Legends was established to give an avenue for spoken word artists to perform their work in a welcoming and alcohol-free establishment. This distinction came about as Ottawa has a large Muslim community and due to religious restrictions, many artists did not have a venue to perform. The alcohol-free venue also encourages youth to both contribute as audience and performer.
