Hamilton Youth Poets

Exploring hip-hop poetics and youth empowerment, Hamilton Youth Poets (HYP) was created in 2012 to give the city’s youth the opportunity to develop their creative skills and have their voices heard. HYP has grown steadily and evolved into an arts organization that engages Hamilton youth in the act of telling their own stories through spoken word, verse, multimedia, poetry slam, and new age journalism. This year-round work is then celebrated every spring in an awe-inspiring culmination of the annual youth poetry festival, Louder Than A Bomb Canada.
