Group Description

The Wandering Eye: Political Art Collective & Zine presents: POLITICAL OPEN MIC!

Political Open Mic is a open mic-style multimedia art showing and live performance event. WE invite you to share art-in-progress, new art, and old art. ANY POLITICAL & PROTEST ART GOES! 

Unlike a travel ban, we welcome everyone. No hate speech allowed. If your act requires special set-up or equipment, please let us know before the day of the event.

Come show us your anti-Trump art, your poster from the Science March, your new political stand-up routine, or your interpretative dance piece about the death of empathy in America! Show video interviews you did with immigrant families, perform a Putin-on-Trump burlesque duet, or play tunes from your anarchist all-ukelele punk band!

Cost: Free!
Time: Depends on event. See upcoming meet-ups. 
Drinks for 21+

Invite your friends & share the event with any artists you think may be interested!
