Heart Open at the Innovation Festival

hyp is collaborating with Heart Open as part of the Hunter Innovation Festival in Newcastle! Heart Open is a female-focused open mic night that has been running since 2017 and has changed and evolved over time. Heart Open explores themes of regeneration and resilience with live music, dance, discussion, and performance.

We will then end the night by welcoming several creative local artists from various backgrounds for music, art and performance.
