The 930, 930 Mary St., 494-7042, is pleased to present an evening of creative sharing. In hopes to further our mission to encourage meaningful and beautiful art, music, and community we’re launching our first “Open Mic, Open Walls” event.

We should also say, since this is pretty much an uncensored free-for-all, that this event is intended to be “family friendly” and some content may not be appropriate. We want you to be aware too that The 930 is a project of Sojourn Community Church. It is not expected that participants share the views and beliefs of Sojourn Community Church, and the sharing of diverse viewpoints is welcomed. Again, we invite all people to participate in this event (regardless of religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, race, age, etc.) We just ask that the content of your work be considerate of the diverse audience and the venue’s connection to a Christian Church.
