Welcome to LionLike MindState, a Poetry and Art Community that began in Chino in 2008, co-hosted by Judah1 and Treesje EmPowers, with the intention of building an artistic community to represent the Inland Empire. In 2009 we succeeded in solidifying our position as a leading Venue in the Inland Empire by hosting the first successful Poetry Slam session to produce the IE’s first National Poetry Slam Team. In 2010, we moved to Pomona and sent our second consecutive and last Poetry Slam Team, coming home with Second in the Nation. In 2011, LionLike MindState led by ‘Judah 1’ ventured where no local venue had before and opened Machine Pomona, an Art Gallery and Event Space in The Historic Arts Colony of Downtown Pomona.
This Online store is an extension of our Community from the Mic to the Street and every room our Lions might find ourselves in.
