Annual NYC Police Athletic League Poetry Slam

Affirmation Arts welcomes once more the NYC Police Athletic League for their annual Poetry Slam, featuring the poems of 30 young poets chosen at random from PAL centers across the five buroughs of New York City. This year's slam is titled "Sounds", and marks the fifth time Affirmation Arts has hosted this event in cooperation with the PAL Arts Conservatory Program.

The poets will recite their works on Thursday May 30, from 6 PM-7 PM.

In its 95th year of service, PAL is continuing its evolution and remaining a vibrant and vital NYC institution.
