Online Arbonne for PEAK

Fri, Mar 01, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Mar 01, 2019 8:00 PM @ https://www.arbonne.com/discover/promise/index.shtml

Linda and Bright From The Heart Yoga & Wellness have put their heads together to raise funds for Uplands PEAK Sanctuary (People, Earth, and Animals in Kinship) with an online Arbonne Party. With the help of Linda’s team they have created a fundraiser that will not only donate a portion to PEAK, but will donate 100% of the sales to support the residents care, help future rescues, and for the maintenance of PEAK grounds!!!

How incredible is this?! Uplands PEAK Sanctuary rescues abused and neglected farm animals, where they can then live out their lives getting the care and love every being deserves. As you can imagine, this takes a lot of time and resources, and with PEAK being a 501(c)(3) this means it relies 100% on donations, fundraisers, and volunteers to make it possible.

Arbonne takes pride in the efforts to make products that do not harm the body or the environment through the use of botanical ingredients, AND they are a certified cruelty free company by PETA, AND their products are certified by The Vegan Society. To learn more about their ingredient policy, such as non-GMO, gluten free, soy free, and others, you can find more information here – https://www.arbonne.com/discover/promise/index.shtml.

This party is online, so it makes it super easy to participate from the comfort of home, and is a great way to introduce yourself to their wide variety of products, from makeup, body, skin, and hair care for women, children, men, to healthy living and nutrition items. If you’re already familiar with them then stock up, or purchase some thoughtful gifts for others for birthdays, Holidays, or just because. And remember, with every purchase you make you are not only supporting your body, but you are supporting PEAK and all of their amazing rescues. Learn more about each of them here – http://uplandspeaksanctuary.org/meet-the-animals/ – they are why we do what we do :).

What draws people to the work of ecology, conservation, and environmental activism? In what sense is that work a vocation, a calling? In this session, we will hear from three scholars and activists, each with their own unique inspiration and vision of the work of ecology as a vocation.

Laurel KearnsLaurel D. Kearns is Professor of Ecology, Society and Religion at Drew Theological School where she has taught for 24 years. During this time, she has helped eco-justice to become rooted in the Drew curriculum, co-founded the Green Seminary Initiative, and published extensively on religious involvement on ecological issues such as environmental justice, climate change, and food.

Tuesday, October 30, 7:00 PM

Fairview Common Room

In this session, we will hear from scholars of two non-theistic religious traditions and learn how these traditions frame care for the Earth without reference to a Creator God. We will discover that Buddhism and Jainism contain powerful and promising resources, such as non-harm and interdependence, that can promote a robust environmental ethic.

ChappleChristopher Key Chapple is Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology and Director of the Master of Arts in Yoga Studies at Loyola Marymount University. He has published more than 20 books including Nonviolence to Animals, Earth, and Self in Asian Traditions (1993), Hinduism and Ecology (2000, with Mary Evelyn Tucker), Jainism and Ecology (2002), and In Praise of Mother Earth (2012).

Climate change is the most significant environmental problem of our time. In this session we will consider the perils of climate change from a global perspective with the help of scholars of Christianity, Judaism, and Hinduism.

sophia OhJea Sophia Oh is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at West Chester University of Pennsylvania, teaching Religion and Ecology, Environmental Ethics, Asian Philosophy, and Comparative Religions. Her book, A Postcolonial Theology of Life: Planetarity East and West (2011), is the first approach to bridge postcolonialism and ecological theology as well as the first full version of Asian ecofeminist theology.
kroneAdrienne Krone is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies and Director of Jewish Life at Allegheny College. Her research focuses on religious food justice movements in North America. Intersecting her interests in religion and ecology, she has focused on the Jewish Communal Farms Movement.

The Broken Earth: Afrofuture Friday

Fri, Mar 08, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Mar 08, 2019 8:00 PM @ Kheprw Institute

AFROFUTURE FRIDAY: A DEEP DIVE INTO N.K. JEMISIN

It’s being said that for those of us into fantasy, we’re no longer in the age of JRR Tolkien, but rather we’re in the age of NK Jemisin. Join us as we begin a three-month deep dive into the work of the phenomenal N.K. Jemisin who has earned every last accolade heaped upon her.

BACKGROUND

The Fifth Season (2015) is the first volume in the Broken Earth series and is followed by The Obelisk Gate and The Stone Sky. The Fifth Season takes place on a planet with a single supercontinent called the Stillness. Every few centuries, its inhabitants endure what they call a “Fifth Season” of catastrophic climate change.

The society of the Stillness is broken up into many “comms”, “use-castes”, races and species. Such as orogenes, people with the ability to control energy, particularly that of the ground (directly) and temperature (indirectly).

In a prologue, an extraordinarily powerful orogene discusses the sad state of the world and laments the oppression of his race. He then uses his enormous power to fracture the entire continent along its length, threatening to cause the worst Fifth Season in recorded history. The story then follows three female orogenes across the Stillness from different time periods.

In August 2017 it was announced that The Fifth Season is being adapted for television by TNT

We’ll be discussing themes of the book and what it has to say about community, oppression, and most importantly, resistance. As always, we gather at 6p for our listening lab and meal. Discussion begins at 6:30pm.

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.

Sat, Apr 06, 2019 8:00 PM - Sat, Apr 06, 2019 11:00 PM @ Healer

TribeSouL (Indy) – soulful intersection hip hop, reggae, entrancing spoken word capitulated fiercely from the sacred heart of spirited unity with more girl power than a roller derby.

Joshua Powell & the Great Train Robbery (Indy) – in their first full band home show since PSYCHO/TROPIC’s release, experience rock n roll’s soft ego death making your insides tingle while channeling the ecstatic fervor of a million babies born at once.

Veseria (Indy) – fresh off the release of PPD1, become cosmically refreshed by the spectral embodiments of human sweetness, silhouetted by a host of matching suns that proclaim the glory of thrashed vocal cords and guitar solos from cthulu’s drooling mouth.

The Outside Voices (Kent, OH) – coal-fired blue collar smash the tubes out of yr amp type sweaty boys with rusty belts and more than thing or two to holler at the moon about.

ALL AGES.

The Broken Earth: Afrofuture Friday

Fri, Feb 08, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Feb 08, 2019 8:00 PM @ Kheprw Institute

AFROFUTURE FRIDAY: A DEEP DIVE INTO N.K. JEMISIN

It’s being said that for those of us into fantasy, we’re no longer in the age of JRR Tolkien, but rather we’re in the age of NK Jemisin. Join us as we begin a three-month deep dive into the work of the phenomenal N.K. Jemisin who has earned every last accolade heaped upon her.

BACKGROUND

The Fifth Season (2015) is the first volume in the Broken Earth series and is followed by The Obelisk Gate and The Stone Sky. The Fifth Season takes place on a planet with a single supercontinent called the Stillness. Every few centuries, its inhabitants endure what they call a “Fifth Season” of catastrophic climate change.

The society of the Stillness is broken up into many “comms”, “use-castes”, races and species. Such as orogenes, people with the ability to control energy, particularly that of the ground (directly) and temperature (indirectly).

In a prologue, an extraordinarily powerful orogene discusses the sad state of the world and laments the oppression of his race. He then uses his enormous power to fracture the entire continent along its length, threatening to cause the worst Fifth Season in recorded history. The story then follows three female orogenes across the Stillness from different time periods.

In August 2017 it was announced that The Fifth Season is being adapted for television by TNT

We’ll be discussing themes of the book and what it has to say about community, oppression, and most importantly, resistance. As always, we gather at 6p for our listening lab and meal. Discussion begins at 6:30pm.

Casey No and Taylor Rose: Crashing Through The Front Door

Fri, Feb 01, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Feb 01, 2019 10:00 PM @ Tube Factory artspace

“Crashing Through the Front Door” is a culmination of photography, essays, and oral histories examining queer life in Indianapolis, Indiana through the lens of once-a-month dance party.

Photographer Casey No and writer Taylor Rose met over a decade before the ideation of this project in southern Indiana. Though the town was small, and seeped in rural midwestern tradition, the two found a group of LGBTQ friends who were a safe haven. In fact, Casey was the first person Taylor came out to at the age of 16. Both have developed their individual crafts over the years, talking about doing a collaboration for several of them. When Low Pone, an Indy-based queer dance party, came to life the subject matter was clear — the two would chronicle the lives of their queer community as it intersected over one night every month.

Casey and Taylor are capturing a rare and novel movement in queer Indianapolis. One where much of the LGBTQ community is hungry for inclusion of all races, genders, non-genders, and expressions. On a sociological level, they are examining the need for public celebration of holistic queer existence by showing the vibrancy that comes from a space where the queer community can unapologetically show their identities. Low Pone is doing something that’s outside the norm in this city: It’s creating a space for those who have felt displaced. Crashing Through the Front Door is documenting what they view as a historical queer moment of creation and community.

Over the last eight months, dozens of people were interviewed about the impact that a small pop-up queer, trans, and people-of-color inclusive space had on their lives. By no means is a dance party the solution or even a delineation of the queer community in Indy, but it does bookmark a moment in time and offers a periscope view into queer life.

The culmination is a story about how that one night becomes a sanctuary, paying homage to the idea of home, to a chosen family, to rising above the fragments that society bends us to fit neatly into their stackable boxes. The photographs and personal narratives illuminate the process of finding triumph in the face of tragedy and refusing to be defined by it, how a chosen family finds one another, grapples with gender, sexuality, and identity in the midst of a cultural movement.

Casey and Taylor consider themselves documentarians and creative culture makers. Casey is a local musician in the band Spandrels and an award-winning photographer living in Indianapolis. He is interested in closing the negative space between artist, audience, and community. Taylor is a non-binary journalist in Indianapolis who has worked as the Arts Editor for NUVO and as the Communications Director for the ACLU of Indiana. Their work has won numerous Society of Professional Journalism awards for social justice and community based content. This relationship between an artist and journalist is collaborative. Both artists have experienced discrimination based on class, gender, and sexuality. They both found power in their perspective mediums by boldy claiming their own identities. This project is not only personal, it is how these artists hope to encourage similar endeavors in the arts community of Indianapolis.

Exhibition runs February 1-16:
Monday-Friday 9am-6pm
Saturdays 11am-3pm

Black Spaces & Places artist reception

Fri, Feb 01, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Feb 01, 2019 9:00 PM @ Harrison Center

The Harrison Gallery presents Black Spaces and Places, new work by painter Courtland Blade. Blade says, “This show is an exploration of the idea of ‘black spaces’ as opposed to the idea of what some call ‘white spaces.’ Here I am simultaneously exploring some of the culture and history of black people in the city of Indianapolis through place and space – whether it be Madame Walker’s legacy through the theatre, or King Park commemorating the night that Kennedy spoke to the people of Indianapolis after Dr. Martin Luther King’s assassination. The idea of ‘black space’ is a space where people of color feel comfortable and are usually not outnumbered. These are often places where people that are considered white may not feel as comfortable. In a “white space,” people of are color outnumbered, often feel out of place and many times find themselves looking around to find another face of color.” Blade received his MFA from the school of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in affiliation with Tufts University in 2011. His work has been shown nationally and internationally and is in various public and private collections including the permanent collections of the University of Indianapolis, Indiana State University, DePauw University, Sishang Art Museum and the Eskenazi Health collection.

In the City Gallery, mixed media artist Lorie Lee Andrews debuts a new body of work, Building Possibilities. “Every building was someone’s vision and creation and these images celebrate the concept of reimagining the purpose of a structure that seems like it is old enough to be ready for the wrecking ball. There is a special magic that happens when people respect and appreciate the history and possibilities that belong to the buildings in our community.”

In Speck Gallery, ROAM by Kate Oberreich features largely new mixed media paintings with materials ranging from acrylic paint to pastel, and chalk to house paint and embroidery. The work created for ROAM uses symbolism to address concepts of moving to or away from something. A ladder is a way up and out, a bright sky behind grey clouds can be moving toward or away from a possible future. Oberreich says, “Over the course of several years, I’ve been looking into my genealogical history, searching for more than just dates on a page. I’ve been researching the people and the events happening at the time to better understand why people chose to move from one place to another. The first member of my dad’s side of the family to move to the U.S. did so alone to fight in another country’s civil war. He later sent for his wife and children to join him as his own home country disappeared. These are the types of stories I find so fascinating.”

Hank & Dolly’s Gallery features Portraits from the Grave by painter Matthew I. Allen. No stranger to the Harrison Center, Allen was an intern for Harrison Center curator, Kyle Ragsdale while a student at Indiana Wesleyan, and has been featured in several group shows.

The Gallery Annex features work by Phillip Lynam and Tresa Steenberg.

The work hangs through February 22.

Naptown Stomp returns this First Friday with swing dancing in the gym.

With support from: the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the Indiana Arts Commission, Christel DeHaan Family Foundation, Allen Whitehill Clowes Foundation, the Indianapolis Foundation, Sun King Brewery, and Matinee Creative.
