THE LOWDOWN:: Mark your calendars! It’s time for Woke Wednesdays! Hosted at THE BLOCK off biltmore and co-curated by Asheville’s own Cynde Allen & Cortina Jenelle, we hope to create an event  that brings together local artists, activists, leaders and changemakers to share about their human experience and build conscious community with creative mediums such as spoken word, improv, music and visual art. Woke Wednesdays was specifically created to highlight voices from the black, brown, and LGBTQ communities.

OUR FLOW:: Every 4th Wednesday here’s our collective flow –
We begin the night by honoring our YOUTH voices with an opening performance by youth SLAMMer. Then a spoken word, poetry or theater showcase by a LOCAL artist. Following that hour set, the floor opens up for open mic for those that want to share (calling on the ELDERS) – sign up available at the beginning of each event. Then, dance your heart out with DJ Phantom Pantone playing the latest in electronic dance music from around the world! #wokewednesdays

DOORS OPEN AT 7PM. 1ST 10 EARLY BIRDS GET IN FREE!
❤ $4 COVER @ DOOR // All proceeds go to the artists!
