PIC Salon

A FREE curated public showcase of brand new works-in-progress and feedback discussion with the presenting artists + a public open mic where anyone is welcome to present original works of 5 minutes or less.

These gatherings are a great opportunity to not only see our development process in action, but engage in conversation with PIC artists and serve as the first audience for new works. PLUS all attendees are invited to participate in the open mic.

Join us for our Summer Salon! 

Wed. June 29th, 7:30-9:30 pm

The Divine Theater at Gateway City Arts

92 Race St. Holyoke

As always, attendees are welcome to present an excerpt (under 5 min) from their own work-in-progress as part of our Open Mic.
