Urbana-Champaign Independent Media Center Offers Digital Venue Space and Community with its Sounds Like Community Web Series

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

The UC-IMC has always been a popular venue space for performances of all kinds, from spoken word poetry to live music, to art shows, plays and much more. But when the pandemic struck, the IMC Board of Directors was forced to close the building to the public.

This however did not stop members of the IMC’s Programming Committee. They were determined to continue to offer a space for performers and local artists to thrive and for community to happen, even if that space was digital.

Sounds Like Community, a weekly community night Wednesdays at 7 pm, was the result of this process. Running for over eight weeks at the time of this writing, SLC has since served as an excellent source of exactly what it was meant to be. It provides a space for us to come together weekly even though we’re all apart, a place to share with one another the talents, skills and discussions that make us all human. And you can be a part of it! Every Wednesday at 7 pm, until the IMC re-opens, Sounds Like Community will be there. Go to www.ucimc.org/slc to check out past shows and get info on what’s next for the series.
