Common Space is an event for people and about people. It is a place where any and all can come together to enjoy music, art, and poetry. It is designed to give local upcoming artists a platform to perform their craft and to give the local community a space to come together to enjoy these performances and connect with people they may not normally meet. Typically we find that when people share a common space, community building begins to happen. We want to encourage community building and offer this free event to all.
