So. One week from today is our May show. Which means: One week from today is our third birthday.
That’s right, Voices of Venus is three years old!
We started in 2009 with high hopes and limitted expertese, but look where we are now. 😀
In three years, we’ve featured world-renouned poets and storytellers, award winning novelists, slam champions, and poet laureates. We’ve also seen countless women take a chance on themselves and start performing – it seems like every single month, someone pops their performance cherry with us, and that just means the world to me.
So, I want to say thank you – ideally without starting to gush too much (always a risk) – to all of you who come out every month, whether you’re a regular on our open mic, an audience member who shows up and supports women artists and performers with your presence, your applause, and your money, or someone who drops in when you can, you make this show the fun, vibrant, welcoming event that it is.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! 😀
To that end: We’re going to have cupcakes at the May 9th show and, if we can swing it, a couple of give-aways as well. 😀
Hope to see you on the 9th!
 We’ve always been firm on paying our feature performers, because women’s stories and art in general are both valuable and one way we can show that is through paying for the privilege of experiencing women artists’ work.
