ARTIST STATEMENT
Millennials are a subject for which everyone seems to have an epithet. Coined the me generation, the nostalgia generation, the influencer generation, the gig generation, the lonely generation, Generation Rent, Generation Debt, and in other countries: The Generation that Eats the Old, The People Who Are Always Doing Two Things at Once, Generation Maybe, Generation Serious, and Generation Terror; Millennials have been named for the circumstances of our times as well as the various perceptions and realities of how we deal with them.

Generational stereotypes tack themselves onto every intersectionality. Identity can be both empowering and hindering for a person navigating a world in which every part of them is politicized. Someone who exists at the intersections of every social descriptor can find themselves in a sort of cultural limbo. Without a communal tether, who, or what, do you grab onto?

#Nofilter is a multimedia installation created by Breeze and Sass of Future Friends Holographic Magic Club. Part autobiography, part social commentary, and part Black Mirror episode, #Nofilter takes you into the mind of a millennial trying to carve an identity out of the noise, with a little help from their friends. Maybe you’ll find your own truth, or maybe you’ll just get some good pics for the gram.

Mindfulness at the Farm: Reconnecting with your Breath

Thu, Mar 21, 2019 6:00 PM - Thu, Mar 21, 2019 7:00 PM @ Fitness Farm

Reconnecting with your Breath
This month, we will dive into the realm of the breath as a dynamic tool for thriving in our present moment experience. This very simple and often taken-for-granted process of inhaling and exhaling has incredible power to support us – body, mind and soul. Together, we will deepen our understanding and awareness of the breath through sharing, discussion, and guided techniques and meditation.

Investment: $8 at the door

Join us every third Thursday of the month from 6-7 PM to connect, align, and deepen your experience. Each month we will share and explore a different mindfulness topic.

4th Annual Indy Random Band Challenge

Fri, Mar 22, 2019 7:00 PM - Sat, Mar 23, 2019 12:00 AM @ HI-FI Indy

It’s back!
4th Annual Indy Random Band
Challenge Presented by Fourth Sunday Music Co., Square Cat Vinyl, Virginia Avenue Music Fest & HI-FI Indy

RULES:
Folks will get roughly a month to sign up for the challenge.
Band mates will be selected by random drawing in mid-January. They have roughly 2 months to prepare 3 original songs (or 15 minutes of original material) to perform on March 22rd at The Hi-Fi.

Each band is given a special noun, in which one song has to be written about or mentioned in a creative way.

A Panel of judges will rate each group on a 5 point scale: Stage Presence, Originality, Song Quality, Execution of “Noun Song” & Band Name.

The audience members will also get to vote for their favorite bands. The votes are balanced between audience participation and judges, so it defiantly helps to invite people to support you, but not in a lop-sided way!

The winner will walk away with cash, a recording package from Fourth Sunday Music Co. @ Postal Recording and an opening slot on the Virginia Avenue Music Feast main stage!

No duos, or solo performances will be permitted. It’s up to you to make your band work. If people have to be fired or let go, so be it. It’s your band, we can’t hold your hand. Figure it out 😉

Fearless Asking: How to Build an Individual Giving Program

Sat, Mar 23, 2019 10:30 AM - Sat, Mar 23, 2019 12:30 PM @ Central Library

Giving data shows that 80 percent of the funds nonprofits raise comes from individual donors, yet
much of the focus of fundraising is often on grants and corporate gifts. This session will help you
understand the basics of an annual giving program and give you an opportunity to practice asking with
confidence. Asking for financial support for your program shouldn’t be scary – learn to be fearless in
your asking! This workshop is best for those who have already established their nonprofit organization.

Presented by Indianapolis Public Library Foundation staff member Bethany K. Warner, CFRE, in the Knall Meeting Room.

Made possible by The Indianapolis Foundation Library Fund and The Emily Fund through grants to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.
