On August 25, SPACES visiting artist Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh and neighborhood artists hosted their third open mic in the historic Ile Ife Park at The Village of Arts and Humanities.

The event brought together artists from all over the city and the whole Village family. Our Creative Impact Studios music teachers Scotty and Anwar backed up Elle Morris, vocal instructor, as the house band for the open mic. Village students Emyne and Takia shone on the mic. And the evening closed out with a dance-off between all the performers.
