Labriola Open Mic Night

Labriola Open Mic

Start the semester with Indigenous creativity!

The Labriola National American Indian Data Center, along with fiction writer/songwriter Chelsea T. Hicks (Osage), would like to invite the ASU community to our Open Mic Night: Diaspora of Indigenous Identities edition, offered virtually and in person.

Acclaimed Indigenous writers Jay Mercado, Jamie Figueroa and Arianne True will be sharing poetry and writings that delve into the spectrum of the Indigenous experience, centering the experiences of marginalized identities. Local and regional writers will be sharing published and unpublished original work. We encourage community participation and welcome various subject matters.

To join the in-person event, please visit the Research Commons at Hayden Library on level 3.
