The Riddle Bird Café is an open mic night that welcomes performances focused on justice themes presented from diverse perspectives. Poets, singers, storytellers, comedians, musicians, and performance art lovers are all encouraged to join us. No prior performance experience is needed to take the stage. Sign-ups for the open mic will be available on the day of each event. Each open mic will showcase a local featured artist performing a 20-30 minute set, followed by brief discussion about their art.
Pam Blair (aka “Poetic Melody”) is an Elkhart/South Bend native, born artist, program assistant for The Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, diversity co- facilitator on racial issues, poetess, and founder of The Poetry Den.
These events are a partnership between the Notre Dame Creative Writing Program, the South Bend Civil Rights Heritage Center, and the Center for Social Concerns.
