DESCRIPTION

The Definition of Woke and Other Words that Matter is a literary and musical investigation, poetic, profane, and profound of the term “woke,” which has efficacy but also has been co-opted, trivialized, and misunderstood. Tonight, these artists set the record straight.

Eklektik Kenetic is a quarterly series of readings and literary variety shows at Art Share Los Angeles in the Arts District hosted by Ken the Metaphorical aka Kenneth D. Capers.

Readings are a showcase of poets, novelists, musicians, and storytellers.  Eklektik Kenetic is devoted to giving the stage to fearless artists whose work is urgent, topical and transformational.  On June 2nd, we launch with The Definition of Woke & Other Words that Matter. 

Two upcoming shows are Redemption Project and Dope Writing.

Eklektik Kenetic is in partnership with Tongue and Groove LA, the long-established literary variety shows at Hotel Café in Hollywood produced and hosted by Conrad Romo, Ken’s literary Impresario Mentor and Guru.

Some proceeds  from this and upcoming events will be donated to DSTL Arts

DSTL Arts is a nonprofit arts mentorship organization that inspires, teaches, and hires emerging artists from underserved communities.
