"Join us at 23rd and Telegraph in Oakland for a six-slot open mic alongside two amazing features. This month's show features TBD and TBD! Music by TBD!
Telegraph Open Mic takes place every fourth Friday from 7-9:00 PM at our Uptown location. It will have six open-mic slots open to the public. Spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis and the list opens at 7:00 PM sharp. As is the case with our musicians and features at all events, open-mic readers from the community will be held to the Nomadic Press Safe Space Statement. Please see below.
Safe Space Statement
Nomadic Press events are safe spaces for those who have been silenced and marginalized. There is no room for racism, misogyny, homophobia, or transphobia whether in the content of one's reading or in one's interactions with members of the community. We will protect the safety of this space by revoking a reader's access to the microphone if we feel they have violated these guidelines, and we encourage community members to come to us if someone has violated these guidelines away from the microphone. We are a community, and we will work together to ensure that the safety of our most vulnerable members is prioritized above all else.
Come early to sign up for the open mic and share your latest work! Curated and emceed by Rene Vaz.
To help pay for our space and our artists and ensure that we can continue our robust programming series, we are calling for $10 at the door (plus whatever else you may be able to give), but no one turned away for lack of funds. Nomadic Press books, as always, will be for sale at the event.
Wine and Red Bay coffee will be available."
