Lucky Chaos hosts an open mic series, Leave it at the Mic (LITM), at the Motion Media Art Center throughout 2018. Starting August, 2018, we will be switching from monthly to every other month, on the first Thursday from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM.
We welcome anyone that struggles with mental health issues, as well as friends and allies to attend and/or perform. The format is open to stand up, poetry, singing, dancing, improv, storytelling, as well as other performance genres.
There is a theme for every event, but treat it as optional, if you prefer to perform on another topic related to mental health. The theme for August is – The Long Road.

As part of the Lucky Chaos Mental Health initiative, we maintain a Lucky Chaos Mental Health Bill of Rights. We welcome your additions to the Bill of Rights. At every LITM event, we will have a giant post it board that anyone is welcome to add what they feel we should have in our Mental Health Bill of Rights. We offer smaller post its that you can write on and then stick to the giant post it.
The other thing we do at LITM is the opportunity to ‘leave it at the mic.’ There are pens and post-its available for attendees to write something they want to be rid of. It could be a self doubt. A misconception about yourself. At the end of the open mic, we collect those (unread) post-its and we destroy them along with those misbeliefs and free ourselves from the things that hold us back. This is entirely voluntary.
Motion Media Arts Center is a 501c(3) non-profit independent film, art, and technology center that supports every aspect of production from idea to distribution. Our goal is to educate, train, and develop emerging artists of all ages to be active participants in shaping our culture. We are dedicated to the belief that film, art and technology can be and are financially accessible art forms both in and outside of the classroom. Our programs include Austin School of Film and Austin Cinemaker Space.
