Voices Merging is a multicultural student based artist coalition dedicated to providing venues, workshops and comfortable atmosphere for all types of artists. Starting in April 2002, VM has grown to be a driving force not only for young performance artists but has also continued a tradition of spoken word in Minnesota. VM is best known for its bi-weekly open mics on the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus located at Moos Tower Room 2-650. We also hold bi-ennial poetry/hip-hop conferences that bring well renowned authors, poets, writers and publishers. There has yet to be any student group on the University of Minnesota campus like us that brings poets, singers, dancers, rappers, actors, musicians of all generations into one room and create a exhilarating experience.
