Free and open to the public. Donations accepted. Open to 7th-12th grade students in the Greater New Orleans area (or young people who are out of school but fall within this age group), #NOYOM provides a stage and space for young people to explore themselves, to share their writing and experiences with their peers, and to support one another in their artistic endeavors. NOYOM currently takes place on the 3rd Wednesday of every month in the Ashe Cultural Arts Center. This month, in conjunction with Ashe's Diaspora Boutique, NOYOM will be celebrating National Headwrap Day as well as its last show of the school semester and featuring New Orleans' own singer, songwriter, poet, healer (and rocker of the flyest headwraps!), Caren Green ! NOYOM is a collective of Greater New Orleans-area youth, poets, educators, and activists whose mission is to provide enriching youth literary experience, create safe spaces for youth expression, elevate youth voices, and cultivate a sustainable literary culture for the next generation.
