Exit 36 a four-day slam poetry festival that serves the community through educational, theatrical and literary performances at three of Pompano Beach’s cultural arts venues – Bailey Contemporary Arts, Historic Ali Cultural Arts and Pompano Beach Cultural Arts. The festival nurtures, supports and showcases regional, national and international writers, facilitators and artists from all over the country to honor the creative genius of our own cultural arts pioneers. Exit 36 Slam Poetry Festival activities and events are open to the community and surrounding areas. The festival features writing workshops, community service opportunities, local business support, a beach party, vendors and more. In its second year, the objectives remain the same — to pay homage to poetry, spoken word, literacy, community engagement, and to celebrate the arts.
