Regina Word Up Youth is Regina’s only youth-specific spoken word performance series.

A Youth Stage is an opportunity to share work with our peers and greater community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for youth (14-22) who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams. Rants, stories, jokes (the punnier, the better!) songs, or poems are all welcome on our stage.

After the youth stage, we host a community stage for ALL AGES. A community stage is an opportunity to share work with our community. No scores and all support, this event is a great opportunity for folks who want more exposure or practice, or want to share something that doesn’t usually fit within our regular poetry slams.

guitar-jam-fb-cover-no-textFacilitated by Erik Mehlsen (a.k.a. Del Suelo)
2:00pm – 4:00 pm
By donation ($10 suggested)*
 
Are you a guitarist who has been playing for a while, but doesn’t know anything about theory or improvisation? Or maybe you have some theory up your sleeve but are in need of some guitarists to practice with? Maybe you like the company of cool people enjoying some music on a relaxed Sunday afternoon.
 
At the Sunday guitar hangout, musician and author Erik Mehlsen(aka Del Suelo) will cover some basic music theory and explain how it applies to creativity on the guitar. Following this 30 minute lesson, guitarists will be encouraged to stick around and jam with each other, trading tips and insights on what they’ve just learned. The intention of the workshop is to build a community of guitarists and provide a space for those wishing to improve their craft. While this is a monthly event, there is no pre-requisite required – first timers are welcome to drop in anytime.
