The Royal Drop

Rainbow Bistro, 76 Murray Street/ Byward Market, Ottawa, Ontario

As part of Algonquin College’s public relations (ACPR) #ShatterTheSilence campaign, Mic Drop the Silence is an open mic charity event that will raise funds for The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and awareness of mental health issues. With a microphone and a keen audience, this event will help us shatter the silence and build community in the battle against mental health stigma!

The event will take place on Wednesday, July. 24, 2024 from 6 - 9 p.m. at the Rainbow Bistro on 76 Murray St. Tickets are on sale for $15 on Eventbrite; all proceeds will go towards The Royal. If you cannot attend the event, but would still like to donate, please purchase a ticket.

All audience members are welcome and to perform any creative piece, including, but not limited, to a song, poetry, and comedy skit. While a mental health theme is preferred, it is not required. The evening will also include local artists. Please note that if you are interested in performing, you will need to fill out a form about your routine upon purchasing your ticket for accommodation.

PA system, microphones, stands and sound engineer will be available!

There will also be group performance challenges; groups do not need to be formed beforehand. Prizes will be announced at the event.
