Nova Gray | Live on The Living Stage | An All Ages Open Mic Night This is an all ages open mic with performers as young as 7 years old at this event. Artists are encouraged to utilize this platform to hone their skills and to work on their stage presence with the absence of profanity. Please arrive by 7:30pm to sign up with our host Nova Gray. Nova Gray is a poet, spoken word artist, writer, and community activist that was born and raised in Baltimore. â€œI started writing to put my vision on paper; from paper to my voice,â€ said Nova. â€œWriting saved my life and Iâ€™m just using it to save others.â€ We encourage artists to come early to sign up as space is limited.
