Pyro Poet Tiff Beatty opens and closes each cypher with spoken word. Art Is Bonfire, the title of one of Tiff's poems is also the official name of Chicago's only bonfire cypher, a seasonal monthly cypher for poets and cultural workers at Promontory Point Park, last Sundays, Jun-Sep.
Attention poets, storytellers, emcees, singers, in-the-closet-writers, you are invited to share! There is no list. Tiff will let you know how you will know when its your time to share. There are no features. The fire is the cypher. Respect it. This event is accessible, free, and open to the public.
Disclaimer: Please do not contact the park. This is not an official park event.
