An open-microphone event called “Performing for Peace,” sponsored by groups from Oregon State University and the Corvallis community, is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in downtown Corvallis.
Spoken word and performing artists are invited to showcase their talents on the theme of peace. Interested artists are invited to sign up for the event beginning at 9:30 a.m. on the site, which is the Corvallis Saturday Market at First Street and Monroe Avenue.
Sponsoring the event are the Community Alliance for Diversity and OSU’s Intercultural Student Services.
A collaborative community art project and fundraiser also are planned.
