Mouth to Mouth is AAWW’s open mic series. We provide a safe space to forge new art and communities. We’ve seen unpublished writers and legendary authors, sparked book deals, and hosted comedy, spoken word, music, poetry, memoir, fiction, and more.
DarkMatter is a queer South Asian performance and literary arts duo made up of Alok Vaid-Menon and Janani Balasubramanian. They make noise, perform spoken word, write excessively, facilitate workshops, and flail their arms around. Check some videos on their website.
