Palo Alto’s Teen Arts Council aims to cultivate creative expression through its upcoming events, which include a poetry jam, an open mic night, an arts festival and a new art exhibition.

On Feb. 23, TAC will host its third open mic night of the school year.

“Open mics are our most well known event,” TAC Publicist Emily Zhang said. “It’s a chance to meet new people and also perform in a low stakes environment.”

TAC’s second Point B poetry event is March 23. Attendees can expect a night of poetry and tea, and do not need to sign up to perform, according to Zhang.

In addition, a new visual arts event, “Momentum,” is in the works for April. In an effort to showcase visual art, the event will take the form of an art gallery and feature student artists.

TAC president Nandini Relan encourages teens to come experience the art and enjoy an opportunity to have fun.

“You will see a surprising amount of talent,” Relan said. “It’s pretty epic.”
