Express Wide Open Mic Event –What Matters? Creative Empathy, Community Care Ethics, and Story-Listening
October 1 @ 11:00 pm - October 2 @ 12:30 am EDT
Free and open to the public, this event promotes the spirit of a listening, caring, and just community during a time of great division. Where are you coming from? What struggles and experiences shape you? How are you rooted, planted, committed? We’ll weave diverse expressions into a tapestry of poetry, short prose, testimony, and music, offered from people all around our region. Young Appalachian voices will join featured artists including Frank X Walker, George Ella and Steve Lyon, Chiquita Mullins Lee, Manuel Iris, Pauletta Hansel, Dick Hague, Omope Daboiku, and Desirae Hosley. Hosted by author/musician Sherry Cook Stanforth. Co-sponsored by Urban Appalachian Community Coalition and Originary Arts Initiative.
