Unmasked Poetry Open Mic and poetry collective Sastra Santai present Proud Poetry Night at Jakarta’s first feminist bar, Bar Gina. Why “Proud”, you ask? Because the organizers simply want you to be proud of yourself and shine with your poems. All are welcomed to listen or recite their poems. If you’d like to perform, kindly shoot a direct message (DM) to Unmasked Poetry Open Mic or Sastra Santai on Instagram, because they only have limited slots for the evening.
Saturday, July 13 at Bar Gina, Senopati, South Jakarta. Free entry, open for public
