The Platform

Open Mic 

Due to COVID-19: next event TBD

at Collaboraction Studios - 1579 North Milwaukee Ave, 3rd Floor in Chicago

The Platform is a radically inclusive open-mic, developed by Phenom as a space for spoken word artists, musicians, poets and performers to gather to develop their craft and build creative community that isn't defined by zip code. Part open-mic, part mentorship program, The Platform is free, open, and welcoming to all artists and audience members. 

The Platform is now in it's second year, having gathered for all 52 Wednesdays of its inaugural year.
