The bulk of "Show & Jam!" is our special live, open jam sessions, which are essentially co-creative performance art experiences where everyone is invited to express their Creative side, no matter what form it may be.
We believe it is important to create a space for polished, prepared works of art (the featured performances), while also providing a space for artists and non-artists alike to play together in an unchoreographed, improvisational manner. The magic that happens when we allow for spontaneity to be expressed and for creative risks to be taken is something that cannot be manufactured, and is invaluably precious.
We've had people sing, make music, paint, dance, read poetry, showcase jewelry design, and more during past Open Jam sessions, often leading to spontaneous collaborations between friends and strangers alike. The point here is not to create perfection, but to engage in the act of creating itself :)
Check out this short video below to see a snippet of one of our past jams:
Those who attended past Open Jams have typically remarked that these jams were the closest to a "live event" that they had ever experienced from a virtual event. It is the kind of magic that must be experienced to be understood, so if you have never been to these Open Jams, don't miss the next one!
