This grant and proposal writing workshop hands on workshop focuses on proposal writing for grants. Writing speculative proposals is challenging. By writing a proposal under a nom de plume and then being part of a mock jury, you will experience how a jury reads proposals and what works well in that context. The workshop includes a comprehensive handout with resources to take home.
A free unstructured studio drop-in where artists can meet, talk, brainstorm, share techniques, materials or ideas they are engaged with.

Repetitive strain injuries and fatigue from working long hours and meeting deadlines can get in the way of being productive and simply enjoying the act of creating. Acupuncture excels for this type of strain, but it also works at the deeper levels where our physical, mental and emotional lives interact. Creativity and expression are at the heart of an artist’s work, though they don’t always come easily. Creative blocks, depression, worry, fear, stress, insomnia—all of these can get in the way of your art. Acupuncture is a physical therapy that frees up the mind, balances emotions, and reconnects our inner experience with our outer expression. This interactive workshop offers practical advice and useful exercises for visual artists, musicians, movement artists, and creatives of all kinds.

Near East – Ravi Naimpally, Ernie Tollar and Demetri Petsalakis – releases their debut recording on CD and vinyl. The concert will feature special guests, Syrian clarinetist Majd Sekkar and Turkish qanun virtuoso Tamer Pinarbasi.
Near East invents their own world-music convention, by bringing together several world music traditions. The Inception of Near East’s Music begins in, Maqam and Iqa’ of the Middle East and Greece, gives way to the raga and tala concepts of North and South India ultimately evolving into group improvisation. From those foundations, Near East harvests a fresh sound, familiar yet surprising. The roots simply cross – pollinate on their own, evolving without additives, without taking anything away.
