Unhappy Holidays 2017

  • A-Mill Artist Lofts 315 Southeast Main Street Minneapolis, MN, 55414 United States (map)

Join Dissonance for our second annual Unhappy Holidays event, an alternative holiday gathering during "the most wonderful time of the year". Bombarded by office gatherings, happy hours, awkward family dinners - or none of the above and feeling a little isolated? Join us for an opportunity to get away from all that and be in a safe space.

This year's guests include renowned singer-songwriter Charlie Parr, storyteller and podcast host Levi Weinhagen, playwright, poet, and activist Saymoukda Vongsay, and experimental classical violinist and vocalist Leah Ottman. They'll perform and engage in brief conversations with the Dissonance hosts about their art and how they experience dissonance in their lives.

Come together in a fun, alcohol-free environment with good food, good music, storytelling and community-building. Find resources from the community on how to live a balanced life whether you're in search of yoga classes, mental health services, support for eating disorders, or just more folks who don't find the holidays especially merry.

Admission is free but space is limited, so reservations are strongly encouraged. Register here:

We pay our artists, we don't charge our guests. All donations made to Dissonance go to supporting this mission, so if you'd like to support us you can make donations at the door or here:
