Season 5 is all about education and events.
CAT'S Got Talent! is a training program for the next generation of creative extremists who will produce cultural stages in schools, on streets, and beyond.
CATS Got Talent! is a program of 14 Black Poppies that teaches cultural event production to high school seniors as a means to cultivate positive school climate at City Arts and Tech High School, which is a public charter school run by Envision Schools. It will take the form of a semester long class that will produce two cultural events at the school. One event will feature the talents of the seniors in the class and the other will be a school-wide talent show produced by those same seniors.

The Bloom, a reading series
The Bloom is a monthly reading series founded by Margaret Bacon, Tara Dorabji, and Jason Wyman in May 2013. Now back for its FOURTH Season, The Bloom features Bay Area writers reading works loosely inspired by a theme. With between six and eight readers per event, it is a fast-paced way to get to know local talent. Each The Bloom is hosted by a previous reader. As such, it is a way to move writers from simply writing and into event production and curation, a very valuable and transferable skill for writers.
This season dates, themes, and hosts are:
