Comedy & Poetry: Tools for Unpacking Mental Health


Esteban Gast


Iggy Mwela


Chad Songy


Our group specializes in using performance, specifically slam poetry and stand up comedy, to teach leadership and diversity skills. We'll be instructing how to use these two art forms to create engaging content and connect with students on a level that helps empower them to be more open and understanding of their peers. Audience members will leave with a better understanding of other walks of life, and how vulnerability can create leaders that others naturally gravitate towards.
