Art Aloud! – A Virtual Open Mic Event

Friday, September 24, 2021, 12:00 – 1:00PM

 


 

Writing is one way to cope with all that is happening in our world, in our country, and in our lives today. Reading to a sympathetic audience is another. U of U healthcare professionals, students, faculty, patients, and family members are invited to read a piece of original writing. All forms of spoken art are welcome, five minutes or less in length (~ 750 words).

Many of us are still finding ways to cope with all that is happening in the world that is outside of our control – and for many of us, writing has been one of them. For six years, UHealth has been hosting Art Aloud!, an open mic event where anyone can read a piece of their original writing, or a piece that may have moved them. Though we haven’t been able to safely do them in person, Art Aloud! continues virtually.

 

Our September 24, 2021 event will include a special reading from Ali Etman, MD, University of Utah School of Medicine 2020 graduate, and his published children’s book, Love Is.

 

U of U healthcare professionals, students, faculty, patients, and family members are invited to read. All forms of spoken art are welcome; we simply ask that they are five minutes or less in length (~ 750 words). You also are welcome as our listening audience.

 

To join, please register for our event and you will be sent the Zoom link and log in information: Registration is required.

 

Join us for friendly company and the positive energy that comes from sharing experiences during these uncertain times.

 

Art Aloud! is co-sponsored by the Center for Health Ethics, Arts, and Humanities; Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library; Office of Health Equity Diversity & Inclusion (UHealth); HCI Wellness and Integrative Health Center; GME Wellness; and the Resiliency Center.
