the theme of the night was “finding my voice”
we sold out! thanks everyone
This month, we’re inviting our performers to tell us stories about finding their authentic self, or sound, or style, or just who the heck they are. Join us, and you might hear about a dramatic moment where they stood up and spoke out. Maybe it took ending a relationship or starting a new venture to find their voice. This November, our all-star line-up will be digging deep to let us in on the how, where, why and when of finding my voice.
Our November show is presented by Werk It!, a women's podcast festival, happening Nov. 13-14 at the Knockdown Center. Two days of conversations, workshops, live tapings, networking, and one-on-one mentoring sessions, plus their Podcast Accelerator: your chance to pitch a show, incubate a pilot, and score a development deal with WNYC Studios.
