Harvard College Speak Out Loud

Purpose Statement

Harvard College Speak Out Loud (SOL) is an inclusive community of artists dedicated to creating and promoting original spoken word poetry. We embrace and encourage collaboration with other groups to foster new conversations around identity and other topics. We emphasize both the personal journey of writing and community aspects of the public one of performance. Most fundamentally, we believe that by speaking our stories, accepting them as works in progress, we can build a supportive community where we challenge ourselves to make art honestly, responsibly, creatively. SOL welcomes all who wish to write or listen, regardless of experience or affiliation.
