Open Mic Canvass at Back to the Grind

February 6 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Art, in all its forms, is for the people. Mic the People is about giving platform to community art and community voices in Downtown Riverside.

Pomona Valley Review, Cal Poly Pomona’s Liberal Arts Journal, and Santa Ana River Review, University of California Riverside’s Arts Journal, will be bringing editors, poets, and authors to share some of their works during the first half of the event. After that, the event will turn into an open-mic for anyone who has signed up to read.

IEDSA and UCR’s YDSA chapter will also be in attendance to talk about community involvement and local activism throughout the night.

This event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. Be advised that parking during Art Walk in Downtown Riverside can be difficult so get there early. Back to the Grind is also cash only and will not allow outside food and drinks. Coffee, soda, beer, and food (including vegan options) are all available at the venue.
