Meet the founder
Gregory II is an Oklahoma native. He is an artist, poet, event host, and business owner. He is the founder of Vizionaries ENT, Poetry and Chill OKC and Poetry and Chill OKC Kids.
Poetry and Chill was just an idea, that eventually turned into reality. Gregory lived in Los Angeles for a couple years, and while there he experienced the poetry scene. Gregory wanted to bring that type of vibe to his hometown, Oklahoma City. From that Poetry and Chill was created on July 29, 2017. Poetry and Chill Kids was created on October 2018 and became a non-profit organization on February 2020.
Poetry and Chill OKC has taken residence at several Oklahoma City venues starting at The New Black Wall Street, to The Queen Lounge, and several other locations depending on the event.
PoetryAndChillOKC is a home for ALL talent across the world with Open Mic events. We offer a platform for artist to showcase their talent, promote new music, projects, books etc.
We are now doing after school workshops at various locations in Oklahoma City, one being in association with OCPD. These workshops are open to the community or depending on the school open to students for free to come learn and have fun! We will have a variety of people from the community come and teach at the workshop from poetry, music, marketing, and more!
We have been featured on OK Gazette, News9, FOX25 News, and NewsOK.
