Spit some bars with us!

This interactive, Hip-Hop centered writing and performance workshop will provide participants an opportunity to tap into their creative linguistic minds and unleash the power in their truth by turning their own lived experiences into raw, creative content.

Writers, poets, artists and musicians are welcome to utilize this space to safely explore their identities through writing sessions and enhance their skills and confidence in performing their art through open mics and cyphers.

Come express yourself and get one step closer to making change in yourself and your community!

Third Wednesday of each month will have an open mic.  

Presented by Youth Speaks.
