WE HAVE MOVED! http://oneimagination.weebly.com/

One Imagination empowers the current and next generation of leaders through written and oral expression. As a collective based in the Long Beach/South Bay area, we believe that through conscious artistic programming, community education and outreach, and leadership development, we can cultivate a world free of hatred, ignorance, injustice, inequality, and oppression.

BREAK THE SILENCE! Open Mic is THIS Thursday, July 29th, 7-10PM in Long Beach!

Thursday, July 29th
7PM - 10PM (Sign ups start at 6:30PM)
Pizza Pi: 649 E. Broadway, Long Beach, CA 90802

You, your friends, loved ones, and family are invited to come, perform, share, watch, eat, drink, laugh, cry, love, and connect at this month's BREAK THE SILENCE! Open Mic presented by One Imagination.

We strive to provide a safe space where all established and emerging artists can come together and share the stage to express themselves -- their struggles, their desires, their suffering, their passions, their accomplishments. And we absolutely love first timers! First timers are highly encouraged to get on the mic and share their creative work.

Featured artists for July's BTS include the amazing live hip hop band, The Committee, and the debut of One Imagination's own hip hop emcee and Long Beach fixie master, SK. You don't want to miss this!

Support One Imagination!
Make sure to visit our merchandise table to support the work One Imagination is doing. We have recycled DIY shirts, used books, political pamphlets, and more! We also recently released Voices of Our Community, a compilation album featuring local artists from Long Beach, South Bay, and South Los Angeles. All album proceeds go towards funding our youth programs. Stop by the table and say hi!

Exciting update - Childcare Available at BTS
One Imagination is now providing CHILDCARE at Break the Silence from 7-9PM. Families are an important and key part of our community and we want to include you!

Parents, please bring along your children, drop them off to the backroom at Pizza Pi with experienced caregivers for fun activities and games, and enjoy your evening of community spoken word, music, poetry, dance, and artistic expression! Children, be prepared to create and have fun! We'll be working on a children's collaborative mural :).

Hope to see you at BTS!
