Creatives Thinkers Poets Community
Art Of the Word
The Longest running Open Mic night in Orlando
Downtown Credo N. Quarter
885 N Orange Ave.
Every Tuesday night from 7:30-10pm.
Open mic nights are a brave space for artistic expression, community building, and a bit of escapism. Listening to the experiences of others through poetry, song, or even comedy connects and inspires us in ways we may not fully grasp in the moment. There is something special that draws us back to these spaces week after week or month after month, whatever your routine. If you don’t have a routine, we invite you to share a space with other creatives and incredible people in general. You, too, can experience and contribute to the Art of the Word!

What's Diverse Word?
Diverse Word was launched on September 19, 2006 at Dandelion Community Cafe, just north of Downtown Orlando. The open mic night ran weekly on Tuesday nights until March of 2020. Diverse Word shifted to online during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, during which we learned that the venue, Dandelion Community Cafe, permanently closed their business. Diverse Word found a new home and returned to in-person engagement on December 1, 2020 at Downtown Credo – North Quarter, just a few miles north of the original venue and continues on Tuesday nights to this day.
