Inspired Creative Expression takes over student lounge
By Eric Nwachukwu
A performing arts club turns lunch at Harold Washington’s cafeteria lounge into an entertaining open mic experience.
This club is called ICE, which stands for Inspired Creative Expression. It consists of performing singers, rappers and poets from HWC who share their original work for all of HWC to participate or sit in on.
“We are a performing arts club that deals with everything in talent. There are many opportunities here, and it definitely helps stage presence,” said Kiya Barber, one of the founders of ICE. “Our background and overall main goal was to create a platform for students to share their gifts.”
“I like how it is diverse. People can be themselves without being judged,” said Argenis Hernandez, HWC student and performer.
ICE also allows performers to practice and get exposure.
“It’s a good club to take advantage of if you are heavy into music,” said Darius Coye, a music production major at HWC.
ICE has showcases for the remainder of the semester and meets from every Tuesday and Wednesday from 2 to 4 p.m. Fliers are around the school.
