April brings hope with its warmth and sunshine – maybe this summer we all can get together again? But while waiting it is time for next Ruusu Open mic, remotely.
All our open mic poets will meet at Zoom and the event will be streamed to Facebook event and Helsinki poetry Connection page at 17.00 PM (UTC+3). Follow the link: https://fb.me/e/6pbsz1pGJ
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. We have two poets to warm up the event: Jarkko Jokinen & Keme!
You can join into open mic sending email to Elina: email@example.com. Just add headline Ruusu Open mic and your name. You will get instructions to join via Zoom at least day before an event.
And all you need is a computer or smartphone with a webcamera and microphone. We prefer joining live with The open mic slots are 4 min long each and they’re limited to 25. We are happy to welcome international performers, as this is an unique way to do poetry club globally.
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. Unfortunately we can’t give you the audience’s applause, so you will get them recorded.
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 at Helsinki Poetry Connection´s website.
