Venue Info

SPEAKERS/VENDORS

LIVE PERFORMERS
-We have a broad sense of "Speak" to include various types of expression (e.g., song, poetry, comedy, dance, etc.)

-SIGN UP:  The performances start at 7:40pm & go until 10pm.  Click here to reserve a spot on Sign Up Genius.  Feels free to take any slot, but we’re trying to cluster the heavier/somber and the lighter performances together (for thematic purposes).  Sign up before 5/20 & get your ticket for ½ price.

-TIMEFRAME:  Please try to stick to the 5min timeline.  We’ll have a timer on stage to help you track time.  Part of what we like about SYT is having a lot of different performances in short, digestible sets.  The hope is that this will appetize attendees to check out more of your material.

- PROMOTION:  Please spread the word & let all your followers know you're volunteering your time & talent to be part of a great cause.  Let us know any particular way you’d like us to promote you.


VENDORS
-TIMELINE: Load in starting at 5pm.  Event starts at 6pm, with only the Vendor area being open until 7pm.  We’ll open the performance space at 7p, which is right down the hall.   We will have the performers starting around 7:30, with the video feed being shown in the Vendor space.  Vendor space closes at 9pm.  You’re welcome to come back & forth between Vendor & Performance spaces.

- FEES/DONATIONS:  We have a $50 vendor fee, which you can pay however is easiest.  You're welcome to donate any earnings to SYT/NAMI, but not obligated. We can make a sign if you do wanna donate.

-SUBMITTING CLIP:  However you want to send is fine.  We can do Google drive, Dropbox, DMs on Instagram, etc.

Speakers

"LISTENERS"

Attending SYT! is important as well, because we want the audience to feel connected to the "Speakers", get educated, and/or be inspired to take action.  A few considerations for "Listeners":
-We'll stick with local & venue guidelines re: COVID protocols

-We'll live stream the event if you can't attend in person (w/ access to it on youtube.com going forward)

-We ask that Listeners keep an open mind & that one's "truth" may be different than your own

-SYT! can bring up strong emotions, so we'll have resources for support (online & at the venue) if needed
