Event description
Join us for an evening of inspiring art and performances with the Fly By Light Youth and One Common Unity staff members

About this Event

On December 11th, Fly By Light youth, alumni artists, and One Common Unity staff members from across Washington, DC, will share music, poetry, storytelling, dance and more at the 2019 Fly By Light Winter Open Mic. Unlike our normal showcases, this event allows the extraordinary opportunity for YOU to share some fire on the stage!

Working in school and after-school with One Common Unity's facilitators in the Fly By Light program, these youth have worked through art to find their voices, express themselves, and bring awareness to the issues they face as teens in D.C.

We encourage the entire community to come and be inspired by this beautiful, positive community of young leaders and activists.

Wednesday, December 11th

6:30pm-8:30pm

Doors open at 6:00pm & community performance signups will begin
