The Helsinki Poetry Connection presents again its familiar, time-honored open stage concept – Ruusu Open Mic!
All poets, songwriters, rappers, and performers of all stripes are welcome to join likeminded souls in an evening of verbal revelry at Sörkan Ruusu (Pääskylänrinne 3) on Sunday, Jan 23rd at 5 pm. Each performer is allotted 5 mins to express themselves; no sign-up required in advance. You can also hook up your instrument or beats to our sound system (bring your own guitar cord).
September’s Ruusu Open Mic will feature warm-up acts by Nenonen and Ruka.
Ruusu Open Mic, like all Helsinki Poetry Connection’s events is free from any discrimination. We don’t accept any racist or hateful content or behaviour. There’ll be a photographer present all night. Please inform the organisers if you wish not to appear on any photos.
Notes: Unfortunately, Sörkan Ruusu is non-accessible. At the main entrance ~ 20cm step and door ~ 60cm wide, side door ~ 20cm step and door ~ 55cm wide, no ramps.
The night is free of charge and hosted by the HPC’s Elsa Tölli. Welcome!
