under the table: Poetry Open Mic series featuring Nisha Patel

On Tuesday, April 4th at 6pm PST, join Massy Arts Society and a collective of brilliant poet organisers for the first event in our Under The Table Open Mic Series, featuring celebrated poet, spoken word artist and former Edmonton Poet Laureate, Nisha Patel.

Under the Table is an open mic series centering disabled and/or queer poets. This series was dreamed up out of a desire to share work, experience art, and connect with community in a covid safer, more accessible, and anti-oppressive space. Partnering with Massy Voices, Under the Table Open Mic Series will be on the first Tuesday of each month with some events in person at Massy Arts Society and others virtually on zoom.

Doors and sign-up at 5:45, show starts at 6

(we run on crip time with the understanding that bodies and brains aren’t always on schedule)

we invite you to sign up for the open mic as Under The Table welcomes us to laugh, cry, celebrate and sit in the richness of queer and disabled life, writing and poetics.
