“Weave & Spin” Performance Series & Open Mic | Hillsborough

March 8, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

If you are a poet, storyteller, or musician looking for a venue to share your work, we have one request of you: BRING YOUR TRUTH.

“Weave & Spin” is a new open mic series focusing on voices who have something to tell us about the deep and dirty of human experience. We welcome BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and everyone else who has waited too long to be heard. Join Hillsborough poet Morrow Dowdle on the second Wednesday of every month from 7-9 p.m at the Eno Arts Mill Gallery. Each event will begin with a featured performer followed by an open mic. Free admission; refreshments will be for sale. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for open mic sign-up. Must be 18 and older to enter and perform. Contact morrowdowdlepoetry@gmail.com for more information.

The featured performer for March is eco-poet Liza Wolff-Francis.
