Participate as a Performer
Many of you have an interest in poetry, music or performance, but it has perhaps been pushed aside for the demands of real life. Art invigourates our lives. Much of Fine Arts Forum's motivation comes from the desire to provide a local environment where local artist can awaken, nourish and pursue their art. Many performers for our series started by working up a few things presented at an open microphone. Check out our booking information.

Art and performance require an audience. A performance is an attempt at communication and this requires an active, listening audience. Evolution of art requires a community. Artists need constructive feed back to better themselves. Those of us in the audience are enriched by what artists have to say. It is also great fun to attend a performance and share that experience with others around you. It beats anything TV has to offer.
