Description:

Join us for a high-vibes evening of community building, vibrant literary traditions, and sharing diverse Muslim voices this blessed Ramadan!

Our theme for this event is: Liberation Stories.

What does liberation mean to you? How are you liberating yourself and others during a historic time of oppression in the world? Does liberation start with the mind and heart? Come share your stories of liberation.

Poets, musicians, comedians, and storytellers of all kinds are welcome to share with us at this special event. Step up to the mic and immerse yourself in a tapestry of voices, each weaving tales of resilience, self-discovery, and the power of liberation. Whether you're a seasoned wordsmith or a budding poet, this event welcomes all to celebrate the beauty of change and liberation through the lens of Muslim voices and human experiences.If you'd like to perform, please sign up using this form.
