Tue, Mar 16, 2021 7:30 PM - Tue, Mar 16, 2021 9:00 PM @ https://butlerartscenter.org/performance/duckwall-artist-series-trina-gross-clarinet/

At the start of this pandemic when all things shut down including musical concerts, the Musicians of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra began creating music and sharing their talents through videos online. Clarinetist Trina Gross asked four friends from the orchestra to play a short sampling of the Larghetto from the Mozart Quintet for Clarinet and String Quartet for a multitrack video that was brilliantly made by violinist Jennifer Farquhar. She named us “QuaranTrina.” As the warmer months allowed, we planned concerts and performed in many neighborhoods bringing live music to friends and neighbors.

We come together once again to play wonderful quintets for clarinet and string quartet by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Johannes Brahms and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart featuring Butler faculty clarinetist Trina Gross with special guests, Jennifer Farquhar and Lisa Scott, violins; Amy Kniffen, viola; and Perry Scott, cello.

Please note that COVID-19 restrictions will be enforced during this outdoor event. Masks will be required, and physical distancing is strongly encouraged. Please wear comfortable shoes and warm clothing, since this is an outdoor event that will require a lot of walking.

More about BlackSpace Indy: BlackSpace honors the lives of countless victims of this violence, we celebrate Black existence in its current form, we mourn lost Black futures. Our private homes are not safe. Our public spaces are not safe. The “justice” system must change and it does not stop there. No landscape is neutral. Urbanists design and plan the built environments where these tragedies occur. The disciplines impacting our built environments are steeped in racism and anti-Blackness. BlackSpace challenges architects, planners, urban designers, artists, and all curators of built spaces to unlearn traditional values and rethink Manifesto-based practice.

Thu, Jan 21, 2021 2:00 PM - Thu, Jan 21, 2021 3:30 PM @ https://info.nonprofitquarterly.org/health-racial-economic

NPQ’s latest webinar in our Remaking the Economy series looks at healthcare, the largest single sector of the US economy. Famously, the US pays more for healthcare than any other nation, 17.7% of the economy in 2019, yet its quality falls far short of other nations. Increasingly, healthcare’s shortfalls are recognized. This year, the American Medical Association formally recognized racism as a public health threat. And age-adjusted COVID-19 mortality rates for Black, Latinx, and Native Americans are twice that of whites. How can healthcare be retooled to address these disparities and promote better health?

Addressing these issues are our three panelists:

Ben Palmquist is program director of health care and economic democracy for Partners for Dignity and Rights, a New York City-based nonprofit that advocates for a new social contract where everyone’s human needs are met.

Al Richmond is based in Raleigh, North Carolina, and is executive director of Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, a member-based nonprofit that promotes health equity and social justice through partnerships between communities and academic institutions.

Yolandra Toya, MD is a physician and community pediatrician, and a citizen of the Jicarilla Apache nation. In her practice, Dr. Toya is currently providing medical care to residents of both Native and non-Native communities in New Mexico.

This webinar will explore:

  • What is the current status of the healthcare system in the US, and how does that differ according to race, class, and location?
  • What does good community-based health research look like? How does poorly conducted health research in the past continue to cause problems in the present?
  • This year the AMA and many US cities have declared that racism is a matter of public health. But what is required to convert words of concern into action?
  • Is COVID-19 teaching us new things about healthcare in the US, or is it mostly confirming what was already known? If it is teaching us new things, what are they?
  • What are the structural causes of healthcare injustice in the United States and what can be done to address them?
  • What principles guide the US healthcare system, as it currently operates? What should those principles be?
  • How do we get from “here” to “there”? In other words, what kind of transition policies are required?
  • What role can nonprofits and philanthropy play in supporting economic and racial justice in the healthcare sector?

Whether you’re a nonprofit leader, board member, or engaged in community-based organizing, this webinar will provide you with real-life examples and lessons learned that can inform your work in your own community.

The moderator for this webinar is NPQ Economic Justice Program Director Steve Dubb. Steve has worked with cooperatives and nonprofits for over two decades and has been both a student and practitioner in the field of community economic development. You can send your questions to [email protected] to have them answered during the web event.

 

*The recording and slides of this webinar will be available on the NPQ website 2-3 days after the live event.

Fri, Oct 23, 2020 6:00 PM - Fri, Oct 23, 2020 10:00 PM @ StorageSpace

Join us for this gallery opening.

Stephen Creech is originally from Kentucky where he studied ceramics while attending Morehead StateUniversity. After college he worked as a Production Manager at IMG_187 in Los Angeles, the Studio Technician at Eastern Kentucky University and Studio Manager at One World Art Center.

Since moving to Indianapolis in 2012, he has co-founder of Clay Week, co-founded Indy Clay Coop, and became the Director of Marketing at AMACO Brent.

This body of work explores the idea that in a reality of multiverses, each with an infinite amount of space, anything is possible. The goal is to transport the view to a world that exists but has yet to be discovered, every piece being a requiem for what humans may never reach.

Masks will be required to enter. Contact tracing, distancing and other precautions will be utilized and observed.

EVENT INFO:
August 2020:
Abbey Arts will not be hosting public gatherings at our venues in Seattle until Public Health guidelines allow.

Because producing streaming music & arts falls within essential services as described in Governor Inslee’s stay-at-home order, we are able to present select events online with all standard social distancing and Public Health practices in place at all times during the production process.

We believe music and the arts are incredibly helpful for mental health, whether in a time of quarantine or not. In addition to providing a much-needed service to the community, we are also creating financial opportunity for artists whose livelihoods have been adversely affected by the ongoing public health crisis.

It’s learning about Art and how Art works.

– Henry David Thoreau

Fri
Fri, Aug 07, 2020 5:30 PM - Fri, Aug 07, 2020 9:00 PM @ Circle City Industrial Complex

The Circle City Industrial Complex Artists (CCIC Artists) will host a variety of artists as part of the August First Friday art tour, on Friday, August 7th. This will be the first “Indoor-Outdoor” First Friday, to allow for safety measures and social distancing requirements. Admission and parking are free, general programming starts at 5:30pm, although times may vary in individual spaces. Outdoor activities will wrap at 8:30pm/sunset, and indoor activities will wrap at 9pm.

The Indoor-Outdoor First Friday will see artists using the parking lot fence along the Pogue’s Run Trail as an outdoor gallery space, giving artists with smaller studios a chance to receive visitors in the open air. Larger gallery and studio spaces, as well as other businesses, will be open throughout the building, and Centerpoint Brewing and 8th Day Distillery will have outdoor accommodations in their areas. Signage
around the area will point visitors to indoor areas. Per Marion County guidelines, all visitors will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distance.

“I really miss the regular visitors I would have every First Friday, we always had great conversations going in my studio,” Rachel Hedges, of BEBITO Toys, said. “While the break has been good, I’m looking forward to showing my new work.” Hedges explored fabric dyeing and back-burner projects during the shutdown, while generating new ideas and working on her online presence.
“I’m looking forward to seeing my clients again, even if we are visiting through masks,” long-time CCIC artist Katrina Murray said. “I’m happy to do my part in protecting the public while returning to doing business. My art practice is vital to me and I know we, the creative culture makers at the CCIC, need to get back to doing what we do best; making and sharing art.”

The Circle City Industrial Complex has become a destination for art appreciators and supporters of local work, with the total number of artists working within the CCIC to around 90. Just northeast of the Mass
Ave. Art and Theatre Cultural District, at 1125 Brookside Ave., the CCIC Artists First Friday programming is a must-see stop, while events and viewable hours continue throughout the month.

The Main Entrance of the building (identified by its black marble façade) provides easy access to both the South Studios and the North Studios (with a wheelchair accessible ramp and elevator). Maps of the building are posted in several locations to help visitors find all that the building has to offer.

For more listings and event updates please visit https://ccicindyartists.wordpress.com,

About the Circle City Industrial Complex Artists
The Circle City Industrial Complex (CCIC) is a nearly half-million square foot industrial building, located at 1125 Brookside Ave., and was formerly home to the Schwitzer automotive company. Its industrial
appeal remains and artists and artisans have made the space their home, carving cozy studio, work, and show spaces from the concrete and steel structure, and the CCIC Artists have grown in number to over
50 galleries, individual artists and artisans. The main artist entries are the North Studios entrance and the South Studios entrance, each marked with signage along Brookside Avenue. The CCIC provides free
parking in a large lot, and is accessible by the Pogue’s Run Trail, connecting to the Monon Trail and the downtown Cultural Trail system. The complex also offers other art-supporting destinations such as the
Centerpoint Brewery, Lick Ice Cream, and Eighth Day Distillery.

Much of Katie’s work, especially the recent stuff, is about the act of collecting, and how that relates to memory and self reflection/awareness. The work also reflects the constructed, architectural and industrial spaces we live and work in and the systems and mechanisms used to organize those spaces.

We ask that all attendees to this opening please wear a mask while inside the gallery. Also, please observe social distance while inside and just outside the gallery.

Extinction Party: A Photobook Case Study

Online Conversation with Jonathan Blaustein, Caleb Cain Marcus, and Jennifer Yoffy
Thursday, June 25, 2020, 7pm EST

Free and open to the public
Registration required

Have you ever wondered what goes into the creation of a photobook, from the initial project idea to the final publication and beyond? Join Aurora for a moderated conversation with the creative team behind Extinction Party, published by Yoffy Press and released this past March. This timely book offers an incisive look at our culture of mass consumption in a globalized world. Led by Aurora’s Mary Goodwin, the talk features photographer Jonathan Blaustein, designer Caleb Cain Marcus, and publisher Jennifer Yoffy for an evening of anecdotal stories, lessons, and experiences as Extinction Party went from idea to reality. Some discussion topics will include:

* When to take the leap from a personal project to a book
* How to approach publishers
* The creative collaboration between the photographer, designer, and publisher
* An honest assessment of funding a book project
* What happens after your book is published

Extinction Party is photographer and conceptual artist Jonathan Blaustein’s first book and brings together over a decade’s worth of research on consumption in America. His elegant images investigate the relationship between what we take from the earth and what we receive in return. Published at the advent of the global pandemic, Extinction Party makes clear that there is a price to pay, beyond the cash register, for the overconsumption of our planet’s resources. In his introduction to the book, Blaustein writes, “It’s the end of the world as we know it. We humans treat the planet like one big, rowdy, discount super-market: a Trader Joe’s filled with chickens, cows and pigs. And we’re hungry for all of it.”
