A QUARTERLY FUNDRAISING EVENT: MAY, AUGUST, NOVEMBER & FEBRUARY
Celebrating creativity, words, writing, storytelling, memory, curiosity, music, photography, books…and our wonderful community!
SIGHTXSOUND “Found Subjects”
Share your knowledge, perspective, thoughts, and insights using a mix of spoken word and photos. Limited to 20 ‘slides’, with a strict time of 20 seconds per photo. Video submissions may also be considered.
POETRY MATTERS “It’s nothing and everything” Read a poem! Yours or someone else’s.
STUBBY PENCILS “If you wrote it, you can read it” Read your work – whatever it is – a story, essay, thought, or an old or imagined letter to your 6th grade crush!
BOOK MARK “Because books always leave a mark” Share a passage from a book that has inspired you, altered your perspective, or impacted you in some way.
PERFORMANCE “Words & Movement” A dramatic read. A theatrical excerpt. You tell us your idea and we’ll go from there. MUSIC “Lyrical love!” Music has a subtle way of inspiring a love of words. Your own lyrics or someone else’s, we just want to hear you. Looking for a 15-20 minute set as people are arriving; or a 10 minute intermission set.
