Half a year ago, I wrote extensively about the value of art, ritual and community building. Six months later, after much exploration, learning and work, I've started the Open Mind Open Mic.
The Open Mic is an opportunity for rationally-minded people to share performance art related to things they value. Have a piece to share about rationality, science, ethics or human achievement? It can be a song, story, poem, comedy act... any kind of performance art that excites you. Covers of existing songs that you find appropriate are also encouraged. And if you just want to come and listen, that's great too.
The meetup will feature people from the NY Less Wrong community as well as skeptics from Center for Inquiry, the largest network of humanist meetups in NYC. It will be held in the basement of the National Underground, a bar in downtown Manhattan.
