Hamilton You Poets (HYP) have created a youth-focused spoken word community and a growing platform for youth to speak and be heard. HYP encourage the art of telling authentic stories with the voices of young witnesses, celebrating their identity and finding a common ground through their narratives. They are long-standing supporters of the Telling Tales Festival and our year-round programming-and we are thrilled to welcome them to this year’s event. Keep your eyes and ears open on Sunday afternoon and you’ll find HYP performers presenting original spoken word pieces, inspired by the Hendrie Park landscape and the Dan Lawrie International Sculpture Collection.
