Has creating music, rhymes or poetry given you light in dark times? Or shed light on a hidden struggle? Then come celebrate how art heals.
Spoken word artists, poets, rappers, country/western singers, dancers, any and all performers are welcome! Hope Is Alive! is not a talent show. First timers are encouraged to take to the stage.
Performer sign-in is at 5:30 p.m., and the mic is open 6-9 p.m.
The Hope Is Alive! Open Mic Series are events organized by the Stand Against Stigma Campaign and Committee to raise awareness about mental health struggles, substance use disorders, suicide and suicide loss. We strive to use art and performance to fight stereotypes, promote healing and understanding.
Check out some highlights from a recent Hope Is Alive! Special thanks to the Shasta County Arts Council for putting this video together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qzkfTf5LSLA&t=106s
***Just a friendly reminder that people of all ages and walks of life attend open mics. Please use a “PG” rating as a guideline when selecting material for your performance, avoid profanity and sexual references.***
