  • Reva and David Logan Center for the arts 915 East 60th Street Chicago, IL, 60637 United States (map)

MWC Chicago, in partnership with Muslim Affairs and Public Policy Organization at UofC, is hosting it's first Autumnal Open Mic! For this Open Mic, we want to hear your stories of all things spooktacular. After all, life can be pretty scary sometimes! Poetry, stories, spoken word, musical performances are all welcome and encouraged. Bonus if you can bring stories of jinns and scary things that go bump in the night!

As a clarification - we encourage you to share stories and pieces about the one of the most powerful human emotions: Fear. Your tale could be one of triumph in overcoming it or one of how you learned to bravely live with a fear of: rejection, squirrels or the sky falling on your head. 

This event will be held in the Penthouse of the Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts and does have a $5 suggested donation. Light refreshments will be provided.

A special thanks to Nadia Ahmed of Muslim Affairs & Public Policy and Leena El-Sadek of the UChicago Muslim Law Students Association for their partnership!
