Anthony Briscoe is a creative who uses his poetry, spoken word, and great love for people to engage audiences. He has spoken at schools in Chicago and corporate events and has performed across many stages. His passion for young people has allowed him to present to K-12 students throughout Chicago and the South Suburbs.

He is a National Spoken Word Award recipient and a technologist focusing on team building and management. His skill has allowed him to touch teachers and social workers amongst his network of educators in Chicago.  He is a youth mentor, a professional technology mentor, and a leadership developer. He encourages teachers to bring their best selves to work every day and, when they can’t, to take the necessary breaks to restore their mental health and come back strong.

Every student deserves a great teacher, every teacher deserves a great leader, and every leader deserves a great staff. All can work together toward a common goal, and Anthony has come to help navigate those spaces in an unorthodox and unconventional manner through the arts.
