Big Sunday happily welcomes you to Our Really Big Community Calendar

We try to include all kinds of volunteering and helping opportunities for all kinds of interests, talents, passions, and ages! As you’ll see, these include volunteering opportunities (one-time and long-term) as well as the chance to support a nonprofit by attending fundraising events. Plus, of course, we include all of Big Sunday’s homegrown events, too! Whoever you are, and whatever you do, there is someone out there who could use your help.

Poets Jazz House Live in Leimert Park @ The Vision Theatre
Jul 30 @ 2:00 pm – Jul 30 @ 5:00 pm

“POETS JAZZ HOUSE LIVE IN LEIMERT PARK”
….just somewhere to go in the midst of searching your soul

A Spoken Word & Music Lounge where spilling your heart is art and searching your soul is mandatory to get in the door…

Inner City Cultural Center II, Inc., Kaos Network and Tuesday Conner are proud to present “Poets Jazz House Live in Leimert Park”. Host by Yawo Watts on the last Saturday of every month at the Vision Theater, 3341 West 43rd PLACE, Los Angeles, CA 90008.

Poets Jazz House is a Spoken Word & Music Lounge where spilling your heart is an art and searching your soul is mandatory to get in the door and the cover charge is always free. This little beatnik Open Mic venue is taking it to the streets with Soapbox Poetry. Join us in the courtyard where there is snapping instead of clapping, the atmosphere is lax but it sizzles. Come touch, be touched, hear the answer, heed the call…

Both audience and artist can get involved on stage or in the writer's workshop directly following the Open Mic performance. Come for the experience, come back for the cool.

This Free event is on the last Saturday of every month from 2 to 4pm at The Vision Theater, 3341 West 43rd PLACE, Los Angeles, CA 90008.
