Last month was the first Open Mind Open Mic, a cultural event co-hosted by the Center for Inquiry. This is your opportunity to share performance art relating to rationality and human progress. Whether you want to perform or just listen, and whether you're experienced or just beginning, you're welcome to attend.
The first event went very successfully, with around 15 skeptics and rationalists showing (approximately an even mix of Less Wrong folk and CFI folk), plus another few people who wandered in from the bar. Including one "regular performer" who had been playing a gig upstairs, came down to see what we were about, and turned out to have a pretty awesome self-improvement themed song. It's a good opportunity to introduce rationality memes to wider audience.
We're building towards a larger event towards the end of year, incorporating the most popular performance art that accumulates at the Open Mic events.
The event is held in the basement of the National Underground. Ask the bartender if you're not sure where to go.
