Event Details: TicketsFriday, September 21, 2018, 8:00 pm
Collaboratively curated, the Friday night series brings writers, artists, critics, performers, and audiences together in an uncontainable assembly. We host readers from here and elsewhere to invite resonances across practices, open and press urgent dialogues, and build a space for shared struggles. We’re holding out for writing which has the potential to make things otherwise.
Online tickets are available at the link above until an hour before this event. Unless otherwise noted, tickets will continue to be available at the door.
