Open Mic Night with Artist in Resident Sally Krigs

We’re excited to present our annual Open Mic Night! The event will be hosted by our Artist-in-Residence, Sally Krigs. She will start with a performance and share her story. Guests will be invited to come up and perform 1-2 songs or spoken word pieces. You’re welcome to get up and share your voice, or just cheer on the performers as part of the audience.

There will be a mic and amp provided. Bring your own instruments!

This is an all-ages event for anyone who identifies as a woman.

Sally Krigs

Sally Krigs is an integral part of the Calgary arts and changemakers scene. She has been influenced by lyrical masters such as Maya Angelou, Lauryn Hill, and E-Sir, which has led her to find her voice through spoken word magic. Sally uses poetry to explore ideas about identity, family, nature, and spirituality. Currently, she is involved with the ReFreshed after-school program, which provides healing and empowerment to youth through elements of hip-hop, as well as Uproot YYC, an organization driven to break down barriers for artists of colour. As a recent Mount Royal University graduate trained in Sociology, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship, Sally is working in partnership with Calgary Arts Development and Trico Changemakers Studio to research strategies to create meaningful social change through the arts.
