Fri, Jul 05, 2019 6:00 PM - Fri, Jul 05, 2019 10:00 PM @ Listen Hear

Wildstyle Paschall’s multi-media installation “Culture, Indy Hiphop Music”, is a captivating look into the unseen counter culture of America’s most popular music genre centered in the capital of a Midwestern city more known for cornfields, a 500 mile race and various amateur sports. The ever-evolving cultural movement created by people of color exists in Indianapolis, isolated from much of the financial success and mainstream consumerism seen in larger cities.

As a lifelong musician and long time hiphop producer, Paschall is a product of 1980s and 90s hip hop culture. During a time when hiphop storytelling, music, and culture expanded internationally, he was concerned that even by 2015 significant accounts of the rich culture created in central Indiana was not being archived to shared with outsiders as well as passed down to future generations.

“Culture, Indy Hiphop Music” takes the viewers and puts them on stage with independent hiphop artists performing and creating music to see their passion and dedication to the art through picture and video.

Fri
Fri, Jul 19, 2019 8:00 PM - Fri, Jul 19, 2019 10:30 PM @ Indy Convergence

Indy Convergence’s newest initiative is mobile, non-invasive, arts programming along the shores of the White River. A Rising Tide’s first season will feature five interdisciplinary, collaborative performances this summer. Each performance will be an unexpected adventure employing an all-terrain stage or floating stage to bring Indy audiences to the banks of the White River.

SHOWS:
-June 20, 6pm Tony Ducan, internationally renowned hoop dancer followed by a nature hike. Who knows, you might just run into some of Indianapolis’ most talented artists enjoying an impromptu theatrical and music jam session

-July 19, 8pm “Sweet Palace Bistro”, our debut performance on the floating stage. The Palace and Sweet Poison Victim will light up the night with their soul, rock, and world beats

–August 30, 8pm “Strings, Reeds and a Flicker in the Woods” Forward Motion will be joined by The Fonseca Theatre Company and local professional dancers for a live collaborative performance in the woods.

September 28, 2pm “Down to the River” an afternoon of Bluegrass and Gospel following the annual White River Alliance Dragon Boat Races.

-October 5, 8pm “UnNamed Productions” Kick off fall with a staged reading of a new horror-thriller under the bridge.

A Rising Tide is made possible through an initial grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust White River Fund and Reconnecting to Our Waterways, with additional support by the Arts Council and the City of Indianapolis. Tickets are available https://indyconvergence.ticketspice.com/arisingtide or www.indyconvergence.org/art

Only 50 tickets per performance are available.

These are outdoor events that require some walking. Attendees should wear shoes appropriate for walking, bring a chair or blanket for seating and bug spray! Each event is in a different location along the river. Attendees will be notified by email and/or phone call about the exact location the week of the show. This is largely due to changing river levels that affect each playing space. Please send all questions to [email protected]

Sat, Jun 22, 2019 10:00 AM - Sat, Jun 22, 2019 7:00 PM @ Red Barn Arts Collective

Located on three hidden acres in the middle of urban Indianapolis, Red Barn Arts Collective is an Irvington-based 501 (c) 3 non profit that supports the arts in our communities by providing low-cost studio, classroom, and outdoor space to full-time artists, arts educators, and performance artists.

Emphasis on AFFORDABLE. We don’t plan to contribute to the starving of the artists. Studio fees will be as low as they can possibly go and are only for covering the cost of utilities. Jamie Willis and Deb Kent are committed to creating a nurturing, supportive and affordable environment for community artists.

(Like our page here: https://www.facebook.com/RedBarnArtsCollective/?modal=admin_todo_tour)

Seven full-time artists will have studio space in the barn. The already-finished classroom space is available now for workshops and classes. Jamie Locke treated us to a preview of her upcoming glass etching class and it was AWESOME!! Dave Nice is planning art classes for teens and homeschool groups plus special events such as Beer and Comics, Dave’s answer to ladies’ Wine and Canvas. Our eight cats and four dogs will be thrilled to know that Rita Spalding is planning a pet portraits workshop this summer!

Priority One is to make the barn ready for studios: getting the metal roof water-tight, insulating, amping up the electric service, installing climate control. If you’ve got skills, we’d love the help. Hoping to make this a community barn-raising, so to speak, attracting as much volunteer help as possible.

With studio artists lined up and classes underway, it’s time to think about the great outdoors. Jamie Locke‘s planning singing and drum circles. Personally, I’d be thrilled to have Irish and bluegrass bands practicing and performing out in the back 40. As for theatre, can you imagine a Midsummer Night’s Dream among the trees? Shakespeare in the park, community theatre, children’s theatre. Contact me if you’re interested in starting something. [email protected]

Only 50 tickets per performance are available.

These are outdoor events that require some walking. Attendees should wear shoes appropriate for walking, bring a chair or blanket for seating and bug spray! Each event is in a different location along the river. Attendees will be notified by email and/or phone call about the exact location the week of the show. This is largely due to changing river levels that affect each playing space. Please send all questions to [email protected]

Kassie Woodworth will be facilitating a workshop. She finds inspiration everyday. In the “IN MY SHOES” workshop, participants will listen to Kassie explain her process of discovery and how it is applied to the artistic practice. Then each participant will choose an object from a box and follow a process of analyzation to find inspirational ways to step out of their “comfort box” for a creative process.

Along with the workshop, it will be the closing of “Entwine In The Divine” a solo exhibition by Kassie Woodworth in the Storage Space Gallery.

Sat, May 25, 2019 5:00 PM - Sat, May 25, 2019 7:00 PM @ Twin Lakes Recreation Center

Hey Bloomington-area veg-community! Would you like to help make a difference in the lives of rescued farm animals? This Memorial Day weekend, let US do all the cooking! We are a group of committed activists that have come together to host a dinner to benefit Indiana’s very own Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary!

Uplands PEAK is driven by their mission to rescue and rehabilitate abused and neglected farmed animals, educate the public to the benefits of a healthy vegan lifestyle, and promote sustainability. This dinner will make it possible for PEAK to install two solar fans plus a panel to power the fans for the cows’ shelter. Their barn is not close to electricity hookups and fans in the heat of Summer are a must!

A purchased ticket gets you an all vegan buffet-style Indian dinner as well as a chance to win a gift basket in a raffle-drawing (additional raffle tickets can be purchased during the dinner)… so what are you waiting for?! Let’s come together for the animals!

Event Info:

What: All Vegan Benefit Dinner in support of Uplands PEAK Farm Animal Sanctuary

When: Saturday, May 25th from 5pm to 7pm

Where: City of Bloomington Twin Lakes Recreation Center at 1700 W Bloomfield Road, Bloomington, Indiana

Price per ticket: $15
