On January 19th theaters participating in the Ghostlight Project will host events to “create a ‘light’ for dark times ahead and make, or renew, a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”
While Speak For Yourself Open Mic is not a theater, this pledge aligns entirely with our mission and so we invite artists for whom this resonates to join us for a Ghostlight Open Mic at 7:30 pm on Thursday, January 19th at Enliten Bakery and Cafe in Provo (43 E. Center).
A ghost light is a theatrical tradition of leaving one light on in an otherwise darkened theater (to appease the ghosts and/or keep people from accidentally falling off the stage in the dark!) but I have a feeling that there is more light than that in our community.
Bring your words and your ideas for creating brave spaces in Provo through the spoken word.
Where: Enliten Bakery and Cafe – 43 E. Center Street, Provo
When: January 19, 2017 (every Thursday!)
Time: 7:30 p.m.
