People of Color Roundtable
May 3 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Join us for MTF’s Virtual People of Color Roundtable! Please note that this space is exclusively for and by people of color.
The People of Color Representation Roundtable exists as a one-of-a-kind monthly gathering wherein a room of artists of all disciplines may share work with and/or solicit feedback from a group that is wholly comprised of people of color. Part writer’s circle, part discussion forum/community building and part low-key performance salon, the POC Roundtable offers artists of color the rare experience of sharing work at any point in the development process with an all-POC brave space. The POC Roundtable seeks to radically uplift and provide connections for people of color interested in musical storytelling, by providing this rigorous space that will help finally flesh out the field and our culture.
We ask that everyone takes special care to remember that this space is specifically and exclusively designed to support people of color interested in musical storytelling. By participating, you are agreeing to respect each participant’s identities fully. In the event of unintentional harm, you are agreeing to accept corrections and actively engage in harm reduction.
Any person of color interested in musical storytelling may attend with either an “I Want to Share” ticket or an “I Want to Watch” ticket. You do not have to share in order to attend. Please either register to share or register to watch (as a supportive community member).
POC “I Want to Share” tickets will close 24 hours before the event, on Monday at 6pm. Since space is limited, please note that you are not confirmed to share unless you receive an email from MTF 8 hours prior to the Roundtable saying that you will be sharing. Receiving an email from Eventbrite with a “I Want to Share” ticket doesn’t guarantee your spot, though we will do our best to accommodate. If you do not receive a requested Sharing slot, you will still be able to attend and watch.
POC “I Want to Watch” tickets will close an hour before the event at 5pm.
Join in the Zoom room as early as 5:50pm when the house opens, to meet one another and hang before we get started!
We can’t wait to see you there!
