Luya Poetry Open Mic
Join us for Luya’s monthly open mic! Sign-ups are first come first served, in-person and prioritize people of color. Luya centers poetry, but also welcomes storytelling, music, and other art forms, as well. Each performer gets about 3.5 minutes on the mic.
Get tickets here.
This open mic’s theme is Glow:
We are transitioning from summer to autumn, the last bits of late sun glowing at sunset. Vegetables on the vine ripen into fantastical harvest, leaves on trees lining the streets begin to turn colors, also glowing in their new season. With the wind bringing a bit of chill, friends gather around fire pits, the glow of the hearth drawing loved ones near. How are you glowing? What is the source of your radiance? Who has come to bask in this light?
Info coming soon!
