December 20, 2017, Wednesday - Dissonance presents: Unhappy Holidays 2017 at A-Mill Artist Lofts

Time: 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Location: A-Mill Artist Lofts, 315 SE Main Street 

Dissonance presents: Unhappy Holidays 2017

Join Dissonance for our second annual Unhappy Holidays event, an alternative holiday gathering during "the most wonderful time of the year". Bombarded by office gatherings, happy hours, awkward family dinners - or none of the above and feeling a little isolated? Join us for an opportunity to get away from all that and be in a safe space. Come alone or bring a friend, the choice is yours.

This year's guests include renowned singer-songwriter Charlie Parr, spoken word poet, playwright and community activist Saymoukda Vongsay, storyteller and podcast host Levi Weinhagen, experiemental classical violinist and torch singerLOTT, and singer of sad songs on a happy instrument Katy Vernon. They'll perform and engage in brief conversations with the Dissonance hosts about their art and how they experience dissonance in their lives.

Come together in a fun, alcohol-free environment with good food, good music, storytelling and community-building. Find resources from the community on how to live a balanced life whether you're in search of yoga classes, mental health services, support for eating disorders, or just more folks who don't find the holidays especially merry.

Admission is free but space is limited, so reservations are strongly encouraged. We pay our artists, we don't charge our guests. All donations made to Dissonance go to supporting this mission, so if you'd like to support us you can make donations on the Dissonance website or at the event.

Doors at 6:30; non-alcholic beverages and healthy snacks available. Music and storytelling 7:00 - 8:00. Socializing and resource finding 8:00 - 9:00.
