A lack of artistic expression and connection with the Fort Worth community inspired junior Nia Brookins to start the organization TCUnderground.
Brookins said she wants students to have a safe place to share their art. Those students and community members gathered together Friday evening to share their music and poetry.
“The important thing about art is that it’s meant to be shared, and its meant to be heard and seen,” said sophomore theatre and English major Paige Poe. “As artists, we grow by watching other people and experiencing other art.”
Brookins said she believes it’s important for TCU students to break out of the “TCU bubble” and connect with other people from the Fort Worth community.
TCUnderground will hold 3 other showcases this semester. To find out when those are and how to get involved visit the TCUnderground Orgsync page.
