Self-ish is a womxn, trans and/or non-binary monthly open mic based in Paris but sometimes travelling to others cities such as New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Portland, Montréal, Madrid, London, Edinburgh, Bordeaux, Lyon, Berlin, Brussels, and Amsterdam (check out our map and invite us to our next destination!). It was founded in May 2016 and has been going ever since.

Why? Because it’s about time we have a space of our own to express ourselves and share our stories. Anyone is invited to attend but the mic is exclusively open to womxn, trans and/or non-binary folk (see Q&A).

So come along and share your poetry, songs, prose, stand-up, craft or performance: let’s be Self-ish!

Self-ish is a bilingual French-English feminist open mic. It was founded by and is usually hosted by Marie.
