Lucky Chaos hosts an Open Mic for Mental Health. A safe space for those living with mental health conditions to share and support each other via performance arts.
Lucky Chaos welcomes 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.
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, these (unread) post-its are collected and destroyed along with those misbeliefs, freeing ourselves from the things that hold us back. This is entirely voluntary.
As part of the Lucky Chaos Mental Health initiative, a Lucky Chaos Mental Health Bill of Rights is maintained. Lucky Chaos welcomes your additions to the Bill of Rights. At every LITM event, they will have a giant post-it board that anyone is welcome to add what they feel should be added to the Mental Health Bill of Rights. Lucky Chaos offers smaller post its that you can write on and then stick to giant post it.
