Aliento Hosting Open Mic Night

Storytellers can enjoy an evening of community open mic on Friday, July 7, with Aliento. The youth-led community organization and art advocacy group is hosting the event, themed “Growing Up” or “Creciendo” at Phoenix Youth Hostel and Cultural Center.

The community is invited to attend and explore the question of who and what raised you?

Performers will share songs, stories, dances, poems and reflections about this subject, and everyone is invited to take to the stage and speak their voice.

The evening will be an important reflection on how people, ideas, objects, places, events and experiences work together to shape our views, lives and personalities. Under the surface, every one has a personal narrative of strong emotion, whether that be anger, stress, pain, wonder, or joy. While many of these stories connect to the Aliento community and the experience of being undocumented or migrants, everyone is invited to share their story regardless of experience.

Aliento First Fridays’ Open Mic is open to all and is meant to be a safe, welcoming community gathering. Everyone is encouraged to tell their story- it is by no means necessary to have a “perfect” piece or lots of experience.

This is one way that Aliento strives to transform challenges into inspiration and connections. 

For more information, please visit the official website and mark your calendars for next Friday at 7:30 p.m. 

Phoenix Youth Hostel and Cultural Center is located at 1026 N. 9th Street Phoenix, Arizona 85006.

I am a multimedia journalist and proud graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication. I am originally from Minnesota, and I love learning about my second home, Arizona, and all of it's awesome communities through my contributions to My Local News! When I was a little girl, I created my own "newspaper" for my neighborhood and spent all my time writing, printing and sending each edition to my loyal subscribers (AKA my family and neighbors!). Now, it's a dream come true to be able to write everyday and have a positive impact on communities through my reporting. In my free time, I love to travel, hike, cook and spend time with my family and friends.
