Sub Rosa: The Creative Courtyard (formerly the Gypsie Courtyard) has found a new home at Bearno's in the Highlands every fourth Friday of the month. It is one of Louisville's most popular creative networking events.
Founder and producer Divinity Rose created the event to be an arts and entertainment networking event and showcase in 2008. Hundreds of Louisville's visual artists, musicians and other performers have graced the stages of Sub Rosa's venues as have a fair amount of out of town visitors.
There are paid feature spots in addition to open mic slots, and the event has been split into two different performance areas. Music occurs in the dining room, while the rest of the event occurs on the back deck. This allows the performers to rotate at a quicker speed as the music happens simultaneously with the other performers. Divinity Rose hosts the Courtyard outside, while Morgan Boeckel (Singer #31911) hosts the music indoors.
"It's nice to actually have a courtyard," says Rose.
If you were not part of the Sub Rosa family in the past, you're still welcome to join us! Sub Rosa was founded on the idea of "everyone's welcome" and was the one place you could count on finding an audience that paid rapt attention and gave loads of support. Let's see our community continue to grow and thrive.
Sub Rosa was a variety showcase and arts/entertainment networking event that was hosted 1-3 times weekly between 2008 and 2011 (over 400 shows) and became more like a family, offering paid stipends to hundreds of featured musicians, fashion designers and make up artists, visual artists, filmmakers, comedians, poets and circus performers. Every show also offered an open mic portion, It served as a support system and promotional outlet in addition to often supplying talent with tools like video or professional photography to use for their own promotions and press mentions. It connected many in the Louisville creative scenes and served as a launchpad for many of the artists now performing regularly in and outside of Louisville in addition to serving as a home for many and giving them a place of emotional support as they pursued their hearts and dreams. It was unique in that it was the only showcase at the time that offered money to the featured musician, performer and visual artist at each show and took no cut of art or merch sales.
Sub Rosa is moving forward with paid feature spots and open mic opportunities and remains a way to connect to a diverse support system in Louisville. The more you bring to it, the more it grows, the more everyone benefits.
