WELCOME to WORLD EXTRAVAGANZA!
For those of you who are coming across the World Extravaganza website for the first time, allow us to introduce our advocacy.
We are an Open Mic Community Music and Arts Organization dedicated to advocate music and arts and build a haven for all things artistic.
Our mission and purpose is to create, foster, and maintain an music and arts community that supports each other as a whole and as individuals.
Currently, we organize regular and weekly Community Open Mics in Manila, Philippines.
Our Open Mic events provide a safe haven and sacred space for artists and performers to explore and take risks, challenge themselves, and welcome something completely new and terrifying. We're a free flowing art space, and of course we love collaboration and invite all music and art appreciators and lovers to our events!
All art forms are welcome on stage – from Music, Dance, Spoken Word, Poetry, Storytelling, Monologues, Flow Arts, Stand-Up Comedy, and Improv, Speech and many more. We also invite visual artists to showcase their artworks at our events.
Our regular and weekly Open Mic events are:
Open Mic Thursdays (Full Band Set Up) at 121 Allegro in Pasong Tamo Ext., Makati.
We also have a THEMED QUARTERLY EVENT showcasing and featuring Musicians and Visual Artists that we pool from our Open Mics that we call SOUNDSCAPE. We also invite more established local bands and artists to headline at this particular quarterly event.
As friends within the organization, together we also organize Community Music Jams and create our own introductory and teaching workshops, community gatherings and retreats. Some of us join each other in recording sessions, movie nights, and random hangouts. We also visit and participate in special events and other Open Mic gigs, shows & festivals in the metro.
So what are you waiting for? Let's get CONNECTED!
