About Aqueous:

Listen | Watch Video

After forming in Buffalo in 2006, Aqueous (pronounced “ay-kwee-us”) has earned a reputation as one of the most promising improvisational rock acts in the country. Best known for their “groove rock” stylings, guitarist Mike Gantzer, guitarist/keyboardist David Loss, bassist Evan McPhaden, and drummer Rob Houk have developed a unique sound characterized by meticulous compositions and rich exploratory jams that easily transition from laidback, in-the-pocket grooves to furious, high-intensity peaks. Composed of longtime friends, over the years, Aqueous’ members have developed near-psychic abilities with one another, enabling them to stretch each song while maintaining a staggering degree of precision. In a live setting, the group’s undeniable technical prowess truly shines, making for dynamic performances that bring fans back night after night.

Whether they’re headlining and selling out venues across the U.S. or performing stand-out sets at notable events like Summer Camp, The Peach Music Festival, Jam Cruise, and Suwannee Hulaween, it’s clear that fans across the country are clamoring to hear more from the Buffalo-based four-piece. With the hype around the group growing, Aqueous is making a huge breakout as the project enters its second decade of existence. Do yourself a favor, and discover firsthand what the buzz is all about.

FREE TRAINING + BREAKFAST + LUNCH

What is Trauma Informed Community Building Training?

Trauma informed community building, begins to define, discuss, and address trauma and the lasting impact it has on our communities. It explains why our communities (usually in urban areas) are having challenges with thriving. This model serves to assist community leaders and workers in recognizing the impact of “continual violence, poverty, historical structures of racism, and disenfranchisement” can do to a community (Collins, 2010). It also serves to identify proven strategies to promote community healing while promoting community building.

The We CANN BUILD (Build Up Informed Leaders for Development) is a set of workshops designed to improve the skills, knowledge and behaviors of those that work in a role that has direct contact with the community on a daily basis: such as (but not limited to) community organizers, community development staff, youth organizers, elected and appointed officials, neighborhood boards, nonprofit staff (especially in community outreach roles), city/county/state employees, first responders, health professionals and religious organizational staff and volunteers.

These six (6) impactful trainings will introduce models of trauma informed care and community building that assist in understanding its impact on youth, families, and communities. Working to understand why trauma can be a stumbling block for challenged communities and how being trauma informed can complement the efforts of asset-based community building approaches (ABCD). The trainings will uncover proven best practices and will evaluate community workers to identify individual trauma and discussing the possible impact that it may have on their work within the community. Lastly, engage participants in collaborative planning and result-based implementation strategies to meet the needs of the community.

TO GRADUATE & RECEIVE THE WE CANN BUILD CERTIFICATE, SIGN UP FOR AND ATTEND ALL SIX (6) DATES: 9/14, 10/18-19, 11/19, 11/16, 12/7
