POC Roundtable 2023-2024

November 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Virtual POC Roundtable is a space exclusively for POC musical storytellers to gather, share work/ideas, and/or receive feedback.

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.

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).

We can’t wait to see you there!
