Event description

Description

Our Friday Community Nights continue each month with our First Friday Open Mic Poetry Slam! Join us to listen to original poetry - uncensored, raw, and heartfelt - and share some of your own! Great experience for sharing the beauty and power of words. Seating is limited, doors open at 7:30. Reserve your seat here to ensure a seat!

Our poetry slams are hosted by Luis Antonio Pichardo, the founder and executive director of DSTL Arts, a nonprofit arts mentorship organization that inspires, teaches, and hires creative at-risk youth, ages 16–21 years old. His work with youth, and adults, encourages them to pursue the arts as the sustainable career it can be.

Holding an MFA in Creative Writing from CalArts, and having been featured in various poetry anthologies, Luis strives to create an inclusive community for all artists by sharing his knowledge in poetics and publishing. As an artist himself, Luis pushes for artistic excellence and a high standard of care through all of his teaching endeavors. To learn more about Luis and DSTL Arts, visit DSTLArts.org today.
