CREATIVE CITY CENTRE PRESENTS REGINA WORD UP AT THE ARTESIAN!  

The pandemic encouraged the Creative City Centre to pivot and transform the Hague Gallery, the beloved home of open mics and poetry slams for close to a decade, into a production studio when safe in-person performances weren’t possible. The CCC now produces exciting digital content and professional development — check it out here!

We are grateful to the Artesian for welcoming us into their space!   

*****  

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!

GUIDELINES, COMMUNITY AGREEMENTS AND CONSENT STATEMENTS  

At the Creative City Centre we always strive for inclusivity and respect in the community both inside and out of our facility, which is why we have compiled the following guidelines to remember both for our events and also in everyday life.
• We encourage respecting the way folks self-identify, without assuming gender, sexuality, orientation, religion, or ability.
• We understand that at times folks may need to leave or engage in other methods of self-care, and that’s okay.
• We encourage language that promotes inclusivity, education, and awareness and dislike all forms of explicit ignorance including, but not limited to, hate speech, racism, homophobia, transphobia, and classism.
• We encourage the culture of consent meaning we respect people’s physical, verbal, and emotional boundaries. This means respecting that some people might not want to be hugged and if you want to engage physically in any way with a person it is important to ask permission before doing so.
