Solstice Open Mic

In April 2020, during National Lockdown, Solstice asked our community to send us in a performance of a reading, a poem, a song with a simple instruction: the more inventive the better! It doesn't matter if you're aged 4 or 99, we want to hear from people of all ages enjoying all creative pursuits!
