You've seen their work featured on Button Poetry, SlamFind, All Def Poetry, CNN, and NPR among other esteemed media outlets!
Forget everything you think you know about slam poetry, religious musings & sermons - this group takes the stage with diverse lyric monologues that have a simple goal, to share their lived experiences and promote unity-in-diversity. The Interfaith Poets are an ever-evolving collective of artists hailing from all over the US and UK and of various spiritual backgrounds. They are a rotating group of performers that explore their spiritual identities through spoken word.
This collective is comprised of professionals who engage in work beyond poetry; youth workers, a pro bono foreclosure lawyer, a public health researcher, educators, an international accountant, photographers, violence prevention activists, trauma advocates, health and science researchers, a bereavement counselor, a Christian pastor, a Jewish rapper, a Baha'i musician, a Hindu rhyme-slayer, a Catholic-Tibetan-Buddhist new-media installation artist, and so much more!
