Pot Luck Open Mic Night

PLOM is a vision close to our hearts but considering the currently developing health advice which encourages social isolation all PLOM events will be postponed until further notice. The UMSU Creative Arts department is trying to find online solutions to replace this event- Follow our facebook to keep updated. 

Have you got a song to sing? A poem to read? A dance to interpret? Why not test it out in front of a welcoming audience at the next Pot Luck Open Mic night?

PLOM is a low-stakes opportunity for anyone to perform anything. Sign up for an open mic slot, or just come and watch the magic unfold – you never know what you might witness in the pot luck of performers.

If you know you’re keen to perform, want to chat through your ideas with us, or have any questions or access needs, chuck us an email at arts@union.unimelb.edu.au. Or just rock up on the night and see what happens!
