The DC Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency (GPI) Lyrical Ambush creates a space for artists to explore social justice, racism, campaign finance, international events, police brutality, war vs peace, corporate domination vs meaningful democracy, the “war on drugs,” and the misuse of fear to degrade civil liberties.
2016 is an unprecedented year in American politics and we KNOW this community is holding onto some bombs and fire – come kick it with us — guerrilla style at 3 Sunday Open Mics (Aug, Sept & Oct).
We welcome families with bubbles, sidewalk chalk and encourage kids to share the mic alongside seasoned artists and passerbys. Musicians, drummers, percussionists would add spice. A GPI Ambush includes whoever shows up to listen and share their truth.
