BIOGRAPHY

Luya

Luya

Luya is a Chicago-based poetry organization that uplifts the voices and experiences of people of color. Luya (Tagalog for “ginger”) is used as both a spice and a remedy across many cultures, and we bring this spirit of nourishment and healing to every workshop, performance, and open mic space we create. We believe deeply in using poetry to bring communities of color together, to build solidarity around the issues that are important to us, and to reclaim our cultures and histories.
