Ohio Tavern, Ohio Avenue, Madison, WI, United States

Event Description

Looking for a way to deal with the anxiety, rage, general malaise accompanying the knowledge of the upcoming Trump Presidency? Come out and join us for Mining Light: Not MY President’s Day, an evening of performance featuring music, theatre, spoken word, performance art, and general revelry at the Ohio Tavern on February 20, 2017. This event will work to shift our public space out of isolation and hopelessness and into collective expression, dialogue, and empowerment. 

We will use this night to come together and send a message, with so many other artists and communities around the world, that we do not accept the US’s dramatic assault on integrity, humanity, science, and reason. We will hear one another and celebrate our diversity as a source of power and wealth. Through art and community, we will resist and build.

Mining Light is in association with Bad Hombres and Nasty Women: Not My President’s Day, an international DIY performance series seeking to channel our energy since the US election out of despair and into collective action. Find out more about the international series at!

Stay tuned for more info about Mining Light: Not My President’s Day!
