Open mic events

juice will be hosting several open mic events throughout 2016-17 in anticipation of our next issue. The open mics are a great chance for students and community members to share their creative work with an audience. We at juice believe that creativity flourishes within a community and our open mics are a great opportunity for creative types of all sorts to meet in a relaxed environment. We also offer a feedback period after each performance where the audience members can give any advice, constructive comments, or compliments they have on the presented work(s).

We encourage you to come out and watch an event, even if you are not prepared to share your own work just yet. There is even free food and drink!

The date for the next open mic will be posted on Facebook (or follow us on Twitter and Instagram).
