AWC host Open Mic Night, pre-registration is recommended


YUMA — AWC has been sharing with the community about its Open Mic Night on Wednesday, April 26, from 6:00pm- 8:00pm at the AWC Yuma Campus in Room 282 of the Academic Complex (AC) Building.
Writers, musicians, dancers, comics and spoken-word artists of all types are welcome to deliver four- to six-minute presentations of their work. Performances should be suitable for a small stage in front of a live audience. Pre-registration is recommended as performance slots are limited.
“Our intention with this event is to create a relaxing performance space for artists from the college and the community to gather and enjoy one another’s work in a supportive environment,” said Professor of English David Kern.
While AWC encourages freedom of expression in artistic matters, participants are asked to refrain from gratuitous references to violence or slurs based on race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. The faculty and staff of AWC will have the final say on when such content has no artistic merit. The event is intended for participants and spectators 14 years of age and older.
