Amsterdam based cultural platform We The People returns to Parallel to quench your poetic thirst and fulfill your poetic appetite. Join us for a night of spoken word poetry and (live) music.

The theme of this night is "A Call To Love", an ode to love in all its forms: romantic love, universal love, familial love, self love, sensual love, the love that ushers revolutions…

About the open mic:

Artists were able to apply for our open call, for a chance to get featured on the lineup. Due to the incredible amount of reactions we received, we will not be opening up a new registration form for the open mic like we usually would. Open mic performers will be selected from existing open call submissions.
