Our organization’s leaders are award-winning poets and community activists who have shared their work across the nation.
Open mic-ers have 4 minutes max. First ten performers on the list are guaranteed, with the rest on-call. We may randomize the first ten performers to improve the flow of the show. For those on-call, priority is given to first timers.
We curate three featured performing artists, a visual artist or vendor, and a community spotlight at every event. In this curation process, we focus on uplifting voices from people of color.
