The 2023 Power of Words Celebration


November 11, 2023 Online All Day


We welcome you to our 18th Power of Words conference, a special celebration of how we can build and sustain community, forge enduring individual and social change, and discover pathways to greater healing, meaning, and joy through writing, storytelling, theater, music, spoken word, and other word arts. Come connect with over two dozen musicians, storytellers, spoken word artists, teachers, community leaders, educators, and health professionals to celebrate and investigate how the arts can promote justice, healing, community-building, and social change.

This event is also a benefit for the TLA Network which, like many nonprofits, has struggled during these pandemic years, and we are deeply grateful to our visionary presenters, who are all donating their time to help us grow and flourish. But funding isn't the only thing we'll be raising: this conference will bring together people from around the world to lift our spirits, forge new initiatives, and renew our vision of the power of words to catalyze positive change.

Just as the power of words exceeds bounds, our one-day celebration conference goes beyond a day with special open mics to accommodate people from around the world and many extras you can enjoy beyond the conference.
