Lyrical Sanctuary Gives Back
December 6, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
6 Wednesday | Workshop, Open Mic & Performance
7-7:45pm | Writing Workshop | Inclusive Excellence Center (Union 119)
8-10pm | Open Mic & Performance | UWM Union Fireside Lounge
Lyrical Sanctuary is UWM’s monthly open mic night, featuring standout spoken word artists, live music and art, and YOU! Now in its sixteen season, Lyrical Sanctuary is a campus tradition that brings students and community members together to share their passion for poetry and creative self-expression. Prior to each performance, the monthly featured artist leads a creative writing workshop open to anyone willing to put their pen to the page.
This month gives both students and community members the chance to make a difference this holiday season. This will be a night of celebration and fellowship as Sociocultural Programming teams up with both our UW-Milwaukee Food Pantry, “The Offering”, and Urban Threads. Participants are invited to donate canned goods along with various new clothing items to benefit the Milwaukee Public School students impacted by homelessness.
There will also be an extended open mic!
