“For women, then, poetry is not a luxury, it is a vital necessity of our existence. It forms the quality of the light within which we predicate our hopes and dreams toward survival and change, first made into language, then into idea, then a more tangible action. Poetry is the way we give name to the nameless.” -Audre Lorde
The mission of “Women’s Circle Open Mic” (WCOM) is to provide young and seasoned women a safe space to discourse, heal, grow, and share their talents without the distraction. As we utilized our ancestor, Audre Lorde’s, words as our guiding doctrine, we recognize the importance of women’s participation in the arts. For that purpose, WCOM is an monthly women’s only event where women are able to practice their God given right to give names and voices to our otherwise indisposed truths while healing in a communal space.
WCOM or Women’s Circle Open Mic is an intimate space of which women are invited to share their art and stories in a comfortable setting. It is an open mic event. All women are welcomed to perform. Men are on an invitation basis. There is a full bar! As always WCOM is live, fun, and inspiring! See you there.
