Lyrical Opposition, along with The Urban Center, are proud to support the artist community in a new inclusive and unique collaborative workshop series. Based in San Francisco, the monthly workshop series starts in January 2016 and runs every 3rd Saturday of the month until the end of the year. Over 50 artists in the past couple months have participated in Lyrical Opposition Workshops and Forums, with participants learning valuable artist techniques, strategies and empowering tools to add to an artists' arsenal. The results; better written songs that resonate with listeners and development in other various skill sets.

These workshops are designed for connecting the artist community in the Bay Area through icebreakers, interactive dialogue, engaging lecture, writing sessions, and a cypher. We hope to create a space for discussion, strategic planning and networking of like-minded and creative individuals through collaboration through the arts and positively impacting our communities.

Optional: Please bring any writing utensil, notepad, and/or electronic devices to take notes on.

Light Refreshments will be provided.

Artists are encouraged to quickly RSVP, as the workshop is limited to 25 participants. For more information, please visit or email us at

We look forward to seeing you there!
