Poetry & Performance Slam TDOV 2019

Celebrate #TDOV (Transgender Day of Visibility) with FORGE, Bricks, and Zao MKE Church.
Do you write poetry? Create visual art? Play music? Are you looking for a space to share your work? Maybe you’ve never shared your art before. . . We welcome trans-specific content, as well as any other topics that move you, issues you are passionate about, and expressions that share more about who you are.
Join FORGE for a Poetry and Performance Slam at our monthly meeting on March 30, 2019. Come share your story, your words, your music, and your art!
We will hold a welcoming space for all of us to mingle with kindred spirits and build community by sharing pieces of ourselves through whatever art form we choose. No need to read or perform – there is ample room for attentive listeners to cheer on those who wish to share.
We’ll provide the space and hot food – you bring yourself and your amazing artwork!
If you know in advance that you would like to share your work, please consider RSVP’ing in advance by emailing shelley@forge-forward.org or calling 414-559-2123 x4. Please tell us what kind of art you plan to share and if you anticipate any special setup.
Everyone is welcome to attend even if you aren’t able to RSVP!
Our new location is one result of an emerging partnership with IndependenceFirst.
Plenty of free parking is available, and the new site is on the Green and 15 bus lines.
For the safety and comfort of those with chemical and environmental sensitivities, IndependenceFirst requests that people refrain from using any perfumed grooming products such as scented soaps, deodorants, perfumes, and heavily scented fabric softeners. It is also important that the space remain a smoke-free environment; therefore in addition to not smoking in the building, we ask that you refrain from smoking in paths of travel and doorways.
