Mega Corazon 2023

As part of National Poetry Month, URBAN-15 again is hosting Mega Corazon, the annual spoken-word marathon featuring San Antonio’s premiere performance poets.  

Celebrating a hybrid San Antonio poetic tradition that combines street, classical, and slam performance styles, Mega Corazón is frontal, improvisational, at times painful, and often choreographed for a highly visual impact.  

This year’s MEGA CORAZON premiers April 17th, 2023 at 8 pm CST with performances by 17 San Antonio Poets. We continue throughout the Month of April with TWO distinct presentations. 


EVERY Tuesday and Thursday in April starting at 10am and looping for 24 hours! 

MEGA CORAZON’s “Poetry for Young Adults”, designed specifically as a FREE Cultural Enhancement resource for Middle and High Schools. Content is geared toward students in English, Creative Writing, Fine Art classes in Theatre, Music, Dance, Visual Arts and Media.
