Open Mic Night: Envisioning a Just Pittsburgh

This is a past event.

Registration requested for this special open mic night.

Join us for a special open mic celebrating work that encourages, challenges, and expands our perspective of an equitable Pittsburgh.

The evening kicks off with performances by award winners from Envisioning a Just Pittsburgh, an inclusive call for art that encouraged artists throughout southwestern Pennsylvania to share their visions for a just and equitable city. Imaan Saeed, Cerrina Hagood, and Kandala Singh are our featured artists for the night. 

Then the stage opens to anyone, from first-time performers to seasoned veterans, to take the stage and share their creative work with an audience. 

Pitt students, faculty, and staff and all performance-based genres are welcome: original music or covers; poetry, storytelling, and spoken word; dance, skits or monologues. If you can do it in public, you can do it on our stage.

Performance slots are limited, and sign-up starts at 8:15 p.m. Come to perform, or just to be part of our supportive community audience and soak up the vibe (and snacks).

Artwork: Morgan Overton. Envisioning a Just Pittsburgh is an initiative by Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, the University of Pittsburgh, 1Hood Media, and the August Wilson African American Cultural Center.

Thursday, February 22 at 8:30 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
