Open Mind Mic

Open Mind Mic is a soapbox-style symposium where you can speak your mind. 

It’s a platform to share ideas – like a TED Talk, except with a cocktail menu. 

Each speaker gets a maximum of 10 minutes, followed by a facilitated Q&A/discussion session. 

There is no theme and there are no censors – the only criteria is that your idea is discussion-provoking. You can be as controversial as you like – you just need to be ready to back up your stance during the Q&A. 

The discourse is free, as is the entry!

Doors open: 7pm
First speaker: 7:30pm

Earlier Event: April 29
Ella Belfanti
Later Event: May 6
Monica and The Explosion
