A safe space for people who need a safe space, the HOUSE Open Mic is a *FREE* monthly open mic dedicated to amplifying under-heard voices. Previously known as “EAT Art”, the HOUSE open mic invites writers and performers to share their work in an intimate gathering every first Friday.
Sign-up starts at 8pm
Show starts at 8:30pm
Ends whenever we feel like it!
***Performers are asked to respect a time limit of 5 minutes.***
***NO STANDUP. This is not a comedy open mic.***
“They’re families for a lot of children who don’t have families. But this is a new meaning of ‘family’… [It’s not] a question of a man and a woman and children, which we grew up knowing as a family. It’s a question of a group of human beings in a mutual bond.”
We strive to foster community at a grassroots level just as our LGBTQIA ancestors have. The name HOUSE pays homage to the classic queer documentary, Paris is Burning, which demonstrates exactly that. (It’s currently on Netflix so if you haven’t already seen it, it’s a must!)
