common ground open mic series

common ground is organized by progressive Vietnamese American community members, artists, and activists committed to cultivating a positive and safe healing space for artistic growth and community empowerment. The common ground collective builds collaborations across communities and supports the work of social justice spaces.

Like us on Facebook and we'll love you a lot more than we already do :)

Our new logo was designed by the lovely Candace Kita.
