Our Mission

to cultivate an inclusive and empowering platform that bridges the gap between artists, fostering a vibrant community where creativity knows no bounds.

Who We Are

We envision Poetry Unplugged as more than just a stage; it's an artistic experience—an immersive journey where artists are encouraged to explore the depths of their imagination and share their truths with the world. By providing a supportive and dynamic environment, we empower artists to unleash their authentic voices, challenge boundaries, and ignite change through the power of poetry.

Our platform is built on the principles of collaboration, diversity, and authenticity. We strive to create a space where artists from all backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives can come together, exchange ideas, and inspire one another. Whether it's through live performances, workshops, or collaborative projects, Poetry Unplugged is committed to amplifying the voices of emerging and established artists alike.

We are dedicated to breaking down barriers and dismantling stereotypes, celebrating the richness of human experience in all its complexities. By embracing vulnerability, fostering empathy, and championing artistic freedom, we aim to spark meaningful connections and catalyze positive social change.

Join us on this journey as we redefine the boundaries of artistic expression and empower artists to fearlessly share their stories with the world. Together, let's create a more compassionate, enlightened, and inclusive society through the transformative power of poetry.

An open mic like no other! Very comfortable and inviting. The energy is amazing! The crowd is always engaged! A beautiful atmosphere created for artists! It's a great place to network, express and connect on a multitude of levels! For all creatives, this is the place to be.

I love Poetry Unplugged from the second I walk in till the moment I leave. I believe it is an experience meant for everyone to feel comfortable and have a good time. The vibe is unmatched and can't be replaced.

Poetry Unplugged is home for me. It's the place where I feel most comfortable to debut new pieces, mess up if I need to, and feel safe to be honest. The community is just that - community. And that's what poetry is about - communal healing. That's what Poetry Unplugged provides.

Let's Connect!
