Collaboratively curated, the Friday night series brings writers, artists, critics, performers, and audiences together in an uncontainable assembly. We host readers from here and elsewhere to invite resonances across practices, open and press urgent dialogues, and build a space for shared struggles. Were holding out for writing which has the potential to make things otherwise.
