How we work
opEN mIC sESSIONS
Our themed open mics bring together a community of performers, willing to engage with subject matter aimed at the core of who we are and the world we come from.
Past themes include:
The Stripped Seasons
Join Spencer's Vanguard throughout the year as we host performance showcases and present a new standard of performance art and creative passion.
This club serves as a creative outlet for students at Dunbar Middle School who are interested in creative writing and spoken word. The Listening, Inc. encourages students to use their own stories and experiences to create original poetry and craft their performance styles. The goal of this club is to help students create performance pieces that will build their creative development, self-confidence and self-awareness, as well as social and cultural awareness.
Artist-As-Citizen Youth Award
Our AAC Youth Award seeks to identify passionate young artists in our community who desire to use their art to change the world. In partnership with Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP), the next generation of artistic revolutionaries are given the opportunity to attend the annual six-day Artist as Citizen Conference at Julliard College in New York City, where they will cover three major themes: Artistic Excellence, Entrepreneurship, and Activism.
