Event description
Slant'd Issue 03 Launch Party [Denver]

About this Event

Our story slam for the Issue 02 launch party was so incredible...that we just had to do it again. Come eat, drink, and get cozy with the Slant'd family as we celebrate Issue 03: TABOO. We'll be in the magical attic space at Archipelago, with Filipino American rapper & poet Meta Sarmiento opening up an evening of storytelling.

What taboos are you grappling with as an Asian American? If you have a story, we'd love for you to share it during our story slam. This is a safe space for you to get vulnerable, connect with the vibrant humans around you, and find freedom in self-awareness.

+++

GENERAL ADMISSION ($25) includes access to:

  • Light bites from local Asian American-owned businesses
  • Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic refreshments
  • A performance by Denver's own Meta Sarmiento
  • All the feels from a story slam around the theme: taboo
  • Conversation and connection with a community of artists, creators, and change makers

About our performer: Meta Sarmiento is a Filipino rapper and poet born and raised in Guam and now calls Denver home. He is a finalist for the 2019 Sonia Sanchez-Langston Hughes Poetry Contest; winner of the 2019 Yes To Purpose Rap Challenge; Top 12 Finisher at 2018 WRLD UNDERGROUND MC TOURNAMENT; TEDx Speaker; 2017 National Poetry Slam Finalist with Slam Nuba; and a winner of the 2015 Spoken Word for the World contest in which he was flown to Paris, France to perform during the United Nations Climate Negotiations. His work often reflects on family, identity, love, loss, and healing.

Issue 03 will also be available for purchase. It features personal essays, poetry, and art from 20 #badasians all over the U.S. and covers topics from self-pleasure, drugs, grief, intergenerational trauma and more —stories that ultimately celebrate the freedom that comes from challenging long-held beliefs about who we are and how we came to be.

Can't make it but want to help us make magic? Our kickstarter is currently LIVE! Help us raise $25,000 by November 12th so that we can put on more kickass events like this!
