Site maintenance June 19-22, 2017 ⚙️


Howdy friends! We'll be doing some site maintenance in the upcoming days to make The Open Mic even more awesome! You might notice a few bugs here and there and some things might not work.

Please, bear with us as we try to improve The Open Mic and make it even better. Hugs from Toronto!

New fields of expertise: Archaeology and Museums


Hello friends! It was brought to our attention that for some mysterious reason we didn't have Archaeology and Museums among the available fields of expertise.

We fixed it! Thanks for the suggestion, Jane! 😊

If these are your fields of expertise too, feel free to edit your profile and add them.
