Eastern Michigan University's AMP!, or Amplifying the Arts, is a student organization under EMU arts management that helps connect student artists with opportunities and audiences.
"We host arts events to amplify the voices of student artists and get them out there," Sophie Swift, treasurer of AMP!, said.
The next big event that AMP! is hosting is Java Jam, a live performance that will take place on Oct. 20 from 4-6 p.m.
"Java Jam is a live performance event targeted more towards live performers like spoken word artists, musicians, actors even, but it's just a fun event for them to perform," Swift said. "If they don't want to perform they can just come and enjoy the event and support us that way," Swift said.
Any EMU students interested in performing at Java Jam can go through AMP's Instagram page @emu.amp.
"I think with this event specifically, we're trying to get back to creating that sense of community here on campus," Olivia Robinson, co-president of AMP!, said.
Java Jam will be held in the Student Center right outside of Starbucks and is the organization's way to help bring EMU students back together after a hectic few years.
"We have really geared this event towards appreciating the fall season and channeling our love for fall and the coziness of the season through music, so we're gonna have those cozy fall vibes going," Robinson said. "We are so thankful to already have a number of performers, poets, that are going to be showcasing their work, and we just want to facilitate that."
