The Syracuse Improv Collective’s mission is to create a fun and happy place for comedic performances in Syracuse. They exist in order to promote improv troupes in and around Syracuse, NY. The SIC holds monthly variety shows, conducts educational workshops, engage in special appearances and stunts, and are the driving force behind the Thumbs UPstate Improv Festival. We blow minds.
Our next Bank Show is Saturday, November 7, 2015. All proceeds from the show will benefit The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. It’ll take place at the Bank located under Open Atelier Architects on 451 S Warren St. The show begins at 7PM. Doors open at 6:30PM.
While progress has been broadly made to combat depression in America, there’s still a prevailing fear and shame associated with mental illness. Some people ignore biological and environmental circumstances, claiming it’s a measure of choice and character. The more we can educate the public on mental health and suicide prevention, the more we can make a difference.
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention funds research, creates educational programs, advocates for public policy, and supports survivors of suicide loss and those at risk. Come join us for an evening of improv, stand up, art, and music to raise money a valuable cause.
