“Glassless Minds has held a community based Open Mic Night in Oceanside, CA twice a month since 2010. We facilitate a safe space for teenagers and adults to express themselves on stage or just sit back and be inspired by amazing expressive art. Glassless Minds Open Mic night consists of a host, the audience, a DJ, the open mic performers and a featured guest performer. Our doors open at 6:45pm, at this time you can sign up to be a performer on our open mic list. As the open mic begins we will call the names from the list in random order to come and rock our stage for 2 songs/poems OR 5 minutes (which ever comes first). Each event we showcase a nationally recognized poet, local musician, or a comedian to be our feature performer for a 20 minute set. We also may have a visual artist displaying art, creating live art or speaking about their craft or all of the above!”

How To Do Nothing, Resisting the Attention Economy helps us grapple with technology’s impact and contribution to mind chatter. Jenny Odell, a working artist and resident of San Francisco, discusses the importance of being radical in though while assessing how much time we spend interacting with the world beyond our screens. Odell’s book is the liberating manuel on how to “relearn how to look at the world” says Megan Prelinger, author of Inside The Machine.
