Are you a young performer? Do you love being on stage and making music? Poetry? Spoken word? Read on to find out how your talents could be used!
Our Community Partner, The Bushwick Book Club Seattle, is a group of musicians who create new music inspired by literature. On March 30th at Hugo House, they will be presenting a show of original music inspired by Angie Thomas' The Hate U Give (it's a Teen Night, too!). They would love to include some younger voices in this upcoming program and are looking for performer submissions, particularly from young artists of color. Participants will be asked to read the book and write a song inspired by it, whatever speaks most to you and your aesthetic. Bushwick may even be able to team you up with a professional songwriter from the Seattle music community!
Check out some of their past shows to get an idea of what their work looks like:
- Okanomode: Music inspired by Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower
- JR Rhodes: Music inspired by Octavia Butler's Parable of the Sower
- Julia Massey: Music inspired by Claire Dederer's Love and Trouble
