Meta-Four Houston Youth Slam Team

Meta-Four is the face of the youth poetry slam scene, representing Houston to the world at the international Brave New Voices festival. Each year hundreds of teens from across Houston come together at the Space City Slam Series, vying for a spot on the Meta-Four team. This opportunity transforms lives, builds community, elevates writing, and takes the voices of youth to powerful heights. Check them out at TEDxHoustonTEDxYouth, and on our YouTube channel.
