Ruusu Open Mic is coming! Last Sunday of March makes us to fall in love with poetry again. As accustomed this Sunday stage poetry club starts with two invited warm up acts followed with the main event, that is the open mic itself! Our warm-up peformers are poet Nathalie Sallegren and actor-poet Kheba Touray.
Each performer will be carefully listened to and cheered on – especially, if it´s your first time! The open mic slots are 4 min long each and they’re limited to 25. You can register for them during the first break, right after the featured poets. Unfortunately you cannot reserve your spot in advance and the running order will be randomly drawn. You can also hook up your instrument or beats to our sound system with your own cord.
Ruusu Open Mic is free from any discrimination. We don’t accept any racist or hateful content or behaviour. Our event adheres to Safer Space Guidelines found here.
