Landscaping Memory

Taught by Artist in Residence Paulina Ramirez, Landscaping Memory is an intimate/collective workshop to remember home, and our memory landscapes. We will be working with collage and playlists that will allow us to map those memories that represent our identity and resistance.

This is a workshop for Black, Indigenous, and Brown Immigrants, prioritizing people who moved away from their land to be here in the United States.

Telltale: Nothing Ever Goes Away

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. This used to be a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit, and perhaps it will be again. We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We, in theory, should be just kicking off our 4th season, but…things got real weird. So I can’t promise that Telltale is back, because the future feels pretty hard to predict or commit to. But we are at least going to have a September show. Yeah, it’s going to be on zoom and not in person. Yeah, it’s not the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until the government stopped making me angry…

JAMONDRIA HARRIS: Audiovisual Soundscapes and Live Rounds

Lavender is a Brooklyn, New York–based multidisciplinary sound artist, sound healing practitioner, and educator whose work spans live performance, recording, installations, videos, compositions, and workshops.

Telltale: It Was All A Dream

Hey, champ! Thanks for checking out Telltale. This used to be a monthly curated storytelling event for people that like to get vulnerable and take no shit. We are into genuine connection, laughter, heartbreak, poignant moments, and community building. We, in theory, should be just kicking off our 4th season, but…things got real weird. So I can’t promise that Telltale is back, because the future feels pretty hard to predict or commit to. But we are at least going to have an August show. Yeah, it’s going to be on zoom and not in person. Yeah, it’s not the same. But it’s better than nothing. And I said I’d do the show until the government stopped making me angry all the time….and….you see my point.…

Corbin Reiff in Conversation With Mark Yarm

Total F*cking Godhead (Post Hill) is the complete story of the complex and enigmatic artist, Chris Cornell. It’s the riveting account of a blue-collar, high school dropout emerging from Seattle, Washington, to become one of the greatest singer-songwriters and voices of his generation. With input from people who knew and worked with him — together with Cornell’s own words — the book recounts in great detail the rise of his immortal band Soundgarden as they emerged from the 1980s post-punk underground to dominate popular culture in the ‘90s alongside other Seattle bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, and Nirvana. Long-time Seattle resident and rock writer Corbin Reiff examines Cornell’s dynamic solo career, as well as is his time in Audioslave. He delves into Cornell’s…

In this workshop, we’lldissect and analyze song forms together across different genres of music. What makes a song unique? What is the message of the lyrics?

We’ll also be joined by guest artists and songwriters for QAs about their creative process.
