Community & Friendships: Wicker Mic 2015
We recently concluded our sixth season of hosting a monthly outdoor open mic in Wicker Park — Wicker Mic.
This year, we hosted three Wicker Mic events, and they were just as unpredictable and amazing as ever 😉 Wicker Mic is always a collision of people: diverse people, diverse performance types and diverse music. It is amazing to see who shows up, and we are always surprised by the talent and creativity of the performers.
It is always awesome to spend time in the community and to bless people by providing a platform for displaying their talents. So many people are genuinely thankful that we put the open mic on, and we get to build friendships with people in the neighborhood. I personally have had some great conversations with performers and attendees, and many people return event after event, year after year.
THANK YOU to everyone who volunteered, whether that was in ‘official’ roles in the event, or you just lent a hand when we were setting up or tearing down. You have been a blessing to people in our community, and have allowed some great friendships to be formed!
