    Event description

    Join us for TELL! 

    Whether you’re a community member, practicing artist or just starting out, TELL! is the community platform to connect others and celebrate our works. Join us for a potluck meal and share what you’ve been working on lately. 

    About TELL! 

    TELL! is MT Space's coffeehouse open-mic style event offering the community an artistic platform to share their works in a casual setting. These sharings can be performances, stories, lectures, poetry, drag, fine art displays -- any type of creation. 

     

    We know that art and food bring people together like nothing else. Join us for a potluck meal and bring a food offering* to share if you're able to. We'll provide plates, cutlery, and beverages (coffee, tea, and water).  

    *Please include an ingredients list for any dishes you bring. 


    Even if you don’t have anything to present now, come and share a meal with the community. Come dressed in your sweats, or as a fairy princess, this is a space to express yourself however you see fit. This is the community platform. 

    Doors open at 7:00pm. Open mic starts at 7:30pm.

    TELL! is a free event. Families with small children are also welcomed.

    Thinking of performing? Here's what you need to know:  

    TELL! is a platform that offers you time and space to share something that you've created, or something you've been working on, like: 

    • an idea 
    • a script 
    • story 
    • song 
    • something else! 

    Use this as an opportunity to get feedback from an engaged audience of fellow artists and community members, or simply show us what you've got!  


    This event is low/no tech. Bring anything you may need for your performance/presentation, including amps for instruments. There will be music stands available.
