October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. And an awesome way to bring awareness to stop domestic violence is through the arts — Spoken Word Poetry and Storytelling. Looking for a safe space to tell your story; a place where you can go to USE YOUR VOICE against DOMESTIC VIOLENCE? Saturday, October 15, 2016, get to Brooklyn and join Spoken Words with Friends NYC Presents: Stop In The Name of Love – The Anti-Domestic Violence OPEN MIC Initiative @ The Inkwell at Bedford Ave.
Curators, Empress Poetry and Negus Adeyemi present Spoken Words With Friends, NYC – a MONTHLY OPEN MIC event hosted at Brooklyn’s Inkwell Comedy and Jazz Club (408 Roger’s Ave.) and occasionally at its second-location (1165 Bedford Ave.) in Brooklyn. They welcome POETS and VOCALISTS to perform on their stage — some being offered to feature, to give them the opportunity to display their various gifts. (Be sure to follow for dates of upcoming events by Spoken Words with Friends, NYC.)
