Every Voice: Open Mic launched at MAC in December 2019.
We invited young people who identify as disabled to come and perform to a closed audience in our Hexagon theatre.
They were given the opportunity to rehearse with guidance from three professional musicians and then take part in a feedback session following their performances.
We welcomed performers to the stage. Of course there were a few nerves beforehand, but our aim was to create a safe and friendly environment to enable an afternoon of confident performances.
The event was a success!
We recorded each performance and played them back for a feedback session at the end. This format worked really well for developing confidence and learning how to give constructive feedback.
The next Every Voice: Open Mic will take place on Sunday 15 March 2020.
Please look out for information in the new year and help us share details of how to get involved, so that we can reach more young people who are interested in developing their performance skills.
