***************************************** 

Our annual Regina Word Up Pride Stage is an opportunity to share your work with an appreciative crowd. For this event, we prioritize and centre queer expression on our Pride Stage: we encourage sharing queer content or any content for folks who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+. Performers are welcome on our pressure-free stage to share in 5-minute spots. We suggest signing up to perform in advance by sending us a message to secure a performance spot. 

Everyone is welcome in the audience! We encourage audience members to engage during the performances – snap, make cheesecake noises (mm’s and yes’), laugh, stomp, or otherwise make your appreciation known!  

We will kick the night off with our “Just Write” segment, which provides writing prompts and time to scrawl out new words that can be shared. Then we’ll move on to our Pride Stage where each performer receives 5 minutes to share their work. We’ll close the night with a feature performance by talented local poet Cat Abenstein.
7 pm – Just Write
7:30 pm – Open Mic
8:30 pm – Feature performer
