Ty Gant

Genre: Writer, poet, spoken word, theater

Ty is the facilitator of “We Rock the Mic” a spoken-word program for at-risk students offered at The Mix at Arbor Place, a youth development center in Lancaster. He uses spoken word poetry as a catalyst for creating a safe, competitive, encouraging space for youth that fosters social awareness, artistic development, and self-empowerment. As a coach, he believes that spoken word is a unique tool to challenge young people to tell their stories, the stories of their communities, and to speak with authority about social justice issues in the world around them. Ty is also a poet, spoken-word artist and theater artist.
