Open Flow Monthly Meetups

Open Flow is a meetup for Visual Artists, Performers, Musicians and Poets with and without disabilities, held every first Thursday of the month from 7:00-9:00 PM. Join fellow artists at this monthly gathering to share our art in an informal, supportive setting. Bring a sample of your writing, visual art, music, memoir, poetry, photography, video, storytelling or other art form.

Open Flow meets at Walker Community Church at 3104 16th Ave. S. (between Bloomington and Cedar Avenues, one block south of Lake Street) in Minneapolis. Parking is on adjacent streets. Fully wheelchair-accessible. Fragrance-free requested.
