Women's Open Mic
A Open Mic for Women and Non-binary performers, featuring music, spoken word, comedy dance and more. For all ages, languages and styles!
The event is open doors and all are welcome to attend. You can drop in and out as you please. Child- and family-friendly. (Performers have been exceedingly good at either omitting swear words, or giving fair warning so families can step out if they wish. Also, we often have performers of all ages, so do not let your age stop you if you wish to perform, young or older!)
International Food Potluck – bring your own and try diverse food from all over the world! Other refreshments provided. Crèche available on request, please book in advance.
If you would like to perform, please contact Rebecca Dunn: [email protected] The programme will be partly sign ups in advance, and there will be slots open for on the night sign ups too. Accessibility: the venue is accessible for wheelchairs.
Background to the event
While Aberdeen is thriving in terms of the arts, open mics and performance nights in Aberdeen are pretty male dominated. This has the unintended effect of actually making female performers feel excluded and less confident to try out their skills in public.
This event is about redressing the balance by encouraging more women and non-binary people in music and arts to put themselves out there. This event aims to play a part in encouraging women and non-binary people to feel confident enough to take part in more open mics, and music and performance events.
