A free, open mic to provide a safe space for artistic expression, experimentation and development across all genres. It is not a workshop nor a staged show. It’s the stepping stone in-between. It is open to artists of all mediums seeking to share their creative energy and unique perspective. All generations from the Chippewa Valley are invited to share their voices, ideas and wisdom.
