FoodCon 8

Fri, Aug 03, 2018 6:00 PM - Fri, Aug 03, 2018 9:00 PM @ Harrison Center

In partnership with Big Green the Harrison Center presents FoodCon 8. Since its inception in 2010, FoodCon has sought to shine a light on the art and culture of food in Indiana by gathering enthusiasts and experts in everything from aquaponics to urban homesteading. This year’s FoodCon is no exception and will feature 20 booths in the Harrison Center gym and courtyard, covering a broad range of interests including beekeeping, foraging, making kombucha, oil pulling and more. A variety of food trucks will be on site as well providing many dining options for event-goers. In Speck Gallery, Big Green presents “Real Food Grows Here,” where attendees can learn about the 32 Learning Gardens they have built and supported across Marion County since November, 2016. A beautiful photo display and hands-on activities will help attendees experience for themselves how Learning Gardens impact students and school communities. Indiana Choral Artisans will join in the FoodCon fun for the second year, performing food-themed music.

In keeping with the theme, in the Harrison Gallery, “Art Grows Here” will feature food-inspired work by Penelope Dullaghan, Johanna Gormung, Jessica Green, Gigi Salij, Rita Spalding, Beth Ann Thomas, Kelley Jordan and Candice Hartsough.

In the Gallery Annex, Cathy McElroy’s (Love Fresh Food) photographic garden murals beautifully capture images of produce grown at the Shortridge High School community garden. “Semi Transparent” is work by contemporary painter Andrea Townsend. Townsend uses her appreciation of architecture to create her own urban landscapes. Her work was recently featured on the HGTV series Good Bones.

Two more galleries provide food for the soul with “Lost Connections, Central Canal” by contemporary landscape painter Genna Pianki in City Gallery. The work was underwritten by a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission and portrays the original central canal path built in the mid-nineteenth century through Indiana and Indianapolis. The City Gallery celebrates urban Indianapolis with place-based art exhibits. In Hank & Dolly’s Gallery, see newly acquired work from Susan Hodgin, the celebrated Indy painter and Harrison Center studio artist who passed away in 2014 at the age of 36.

The work hangs through August 31.

DONT SLEEP Presents: The Wake 2018

Fri, Aug 03, 2018 7:30 PM - Fri, Aug 03, 2018 10:00 PM @ The Silver Centre/Silver Spoon Events

Inspired by the book: In the Wake: On Blackness and Being by Christina Sharpe, “The Wake” combines Art and Activism in a way never seen in the city, let alone the state:

Featuring original spoken word pieces by:

Manon Voice
Gabrielle Patterson
Januarie York
Chantel Massey
Theon Lee Jones
Devon Ginn
Calvin Campbell
Jaydon Martin
Alexandria Swan Tuesday

Artwork pieces on display from
Cora Magure
Deonna Craig

A theater performance by Earl Townsend performing a monologue dedicated to Philando Castile directed by Megan Simonton

A theater performance by Chandra Lynch performing a monologue dedicated to Sean Bell directed by Megan Simonton

Music from Jared Michael, Allison Victoria, and Megan Simonton

A dance number performed by Toni Moore and Ronald Craig

And much more…

Wake:
(v.) 3. to become cognizant or aware of something; awaken; waken
(n.) 1. a watch or vigil held beside the body of someone who has died, sometimes
accompanied by ritual observances including eating and drinking.
2. the track of waves left by a ship or other object moving through the water

The tracks, the waves that hit us as we move are the elements of anti-blackness. Police brutality, education inequity, food insecurity, Mass incarceration and school to prison pipelines, etc.

The element of a “wake” being a segment of the program discussing police brutality with pieces dedicated to lives taken such as Tamir Rice, Aiyana Stanley Jones, Rekiya Boyd, Walter Scott,…and doing so in a way that humanizes them. Eulogizes them discussing their life and their light as opposed to devaluing them as another body.

Therefore, this event will be comprised of activists, artists, actors, dancers and musicians willing to construct pieces either deconstructing an overall system of anti-blackness, or as an ode to a black life taken by police brutality.

Join us for The Wake

Indiana Medical Cannabis Town Hall meeting

Sat, Aug 11, 2018 12:00 PM - Sat, Aug 11, 2018 3:00 PM @ Indiana State Library

Indiana’s Medical Cannabis Town Hall meeting, hosted by Indiana NORML & #HoosierAdvocate David Phipps.

(Please note: We created this event page now, in order to begin spreading the word. However, we will be adding several more guest speakers in the very near future!)

As you may have already noticed, Indiana is making major progress in regards to the medical cannabis legalization issue. Change is coming!

This upcoming Medical Cannabis Town Hall Meeting will be a direct reflection of the progress we’ve all made together.
We will have guest speakers including state representative Jim Lucas, state senator Karen Tallian, state representative Sue Errington, as well as other state legislators that will soon be announced! This will be huge!

We’ll have our friends from the American Legion Department of Indiana, Indiana Amvets & Indiana VFW, along with Hoosier patients that decided to illegally treat themselves with medical cannabis and had great success relieving their suffering. You’ll hear from college professors, healthcare professionals and advocates from across the state.

This town hall meeting is going to be the biggest medical cannabis related event in the history of our state, with Hoosiers coming in from all over, national press coverage and a message that will be heard! If this is an issue that you find important and you would like to be a part of this progress we’re all making, I ask that you join us at the Indiana State library on August 11th beginning at noon.

Together we stand, divided we fall.
