Event Details

In a world where anti-Blackness manifests as systemic oppression, unjust discrimination, and racialized violence specifically targeting black people, we cannot start to heal until we tell the truth of these experiences in public spaces. This poetry open mic invites all to participate in a cathartic community ritual of spoken word performance, in support of wellness, art and collective healing.

Featured Poets: CeLillianne Green & John Johnson

Phillips@THEARC is proud to partner with Woolly Mammoth Theater Company to present a series of programming in conjunction with their upcoming show WHAT TO SEND UP WHEN IT GOES DOWN.

Performances of the show will take place on October 24-27 at THEARC. To learn more about Woolly Mammoth Theater Company and their upcoming shows, visit
