Adam Gottlieb is a poet-emcee/teaching-artist/singer-songwriter/revolutionary from Chicago. As a teen, he was featured in the 2009 documentary film “Louder Than A Bomb,” about the world’s largest youth poetry slam festival by the same name. Since then, he has gone on to perform and teach widely throughout Chicago, the U.S., and even the world, working as a facilitator of safe spaces for creative expression, cultural community-building, and social activism. He graduated from Hampshire College in 2012, where he studied poetry and critical pedagogy. That summer he co-founded the Royal Souls open mic in the East Roger’s Park neighbourhood of Chicago. On days when he is not running around the city from one meeting to another, you can find him busking with his guitar in Roger’s Park or in the subway. Follow him on twitter @adamgodlove.
