Clinton Resistance Series presents FAME for Outside the Frame
Clinton Street Theater

Seven classes a day and a hot lunch. That's what New York City's High School for the Performing Arts guarantees. Stardom? That's something the school's teenage musicians, actors, dancers and dreamers strive for. Fame sings the body electric, celebrating the growing-up process of honing talent, confronting realities, finding love, living life.

Director Alan Parker (Evita, The Commitments) brings an energetic style to the crisscrossing stories of students (including future Academy Award winner Irene Cara, Paul McCrane (ER), Barry Miller (Saturday Night Fever) and two who returned in the later TV series, Gene Anthony Ray and Lee Curreri). Nominated for six Academy Awards, Fame won Oscars for its dynamic score and title tune.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Outside the Frame, which was founded with the idea of helping homeless youth value themselves as productive members of society. OTF partners with excellent social service organizations to provide a much-needed creative outlet, technological training, and a sense of success that is contagious and visible to the public.

To thrive, young people need more than their basic needs met, and OTF offers a model educational and vocational program, where young people create films about issues that matter to them and share them with the public.

Program graduates have gone on to complete their GED, enroll in college, actively pursue employment and independent living, and make movies.

Outside the Frame changes the way homeless and marginalized youth see and are seen through film.

Clinton Resistance Series shows a free movie each Monday at 7pm. All donations collected at the door go to support a different weekly non-profit

Voices From the Front Lines: The State of PDX Community Driven Media, a fundraiser for PDX Zine Symposium

"Voices From the Front Lines”: The State of Community Driven Media in Portland featuring Zahir Janmohamed (The Racist Sandwich), Melanie Stevens (Miss Anthology Comics & The Nat Turner Project), Andre Middleton (Open Signal, XRayFM), and Israel Bayer (Street Roots).

July 6th, 2017, Thursday Doors at 6:30p, Panel starts at 7:00pm TaborSpace (5441 SE Belmont St, PDX) $7-10 Sliding Scale (All proceeds go to the Portland Zine Symposium)

This is PZS's annual fundraiser, and we are attempting to raise $500 help offset the cost of port-o-potty rentals. Please help us raise the necessary funds! Your donations are appreciated!

Portland Zine Symposium - An organization that since 2001 has put on events to celebrate and support small press and DIY culture.

The Racist Sandwich - A podcast about food, race, gender, and class, hosted by chef Soleil Ho and journalist Zahir Janmohamed. Produced by Juan Ramirez.

Miss Anthology’s mission is to support racially and economically diverse young comic artists of the female diaspora by teaching professional skills through hands-on workshops, and publishing their work online and in print. By introducing female and genderqueer artists and writers to the comics and the art industries before they graduate, they will gain a firm understanding and head start on their careers, as well as an established network of peers within this otherwise male-dominated field.

The Nat Turner Project allows artists of color to go beyond the usual initial expositions inherent in presenting art borne of marginalized perspectives to a dominant culture; allowing artists of color freedom to create or express their own language within and without the parameters of racial commodification or designation. NTP creates an environment of inclusivity, a communal harbor for artists previously silenced by institutional constraints, and actively provides priority spaces to artists of color; allowing others the privilege of viewership from an outsider role. Nat Turner Project, not just a name, but a statement of artistic freedom.

Open Signal: Portland Community Media Center - With a commitment to creativity, technology and social change, Open Signal makes media production possible for everyone. We provide skills, equipment, inspiration and we amplify local voices on five cable channels.

XRAY.FM is an independent, not-for-profit radio station which supports the Pacific Northwest’s music and arts communities. It fulfills its educational mission through airing local public affairs programs featuring voices seldom heard on radio, and broadcasting a diverse array of music, with a focus on new, local, independent, and experimental recordings. XRAY.FM also serves as a resource for training community members in radio, broadcasting, and digital media.

Street Roots creates income opportunities for people experiencing homelessness and poverty by producing a newspaper and other media that are catalysts for individual and social change.

Stop Making Sense, a benefit for the 4th Dimension Recovery Center
Clinton Street Theater

This special screening is part of the Art House Convergence's national day of celebrating the life of Jonathan Demme. Theaters across the country will join in by screening Demme’s iconic concert film, complete with a special pre-recorded intro and Q&A featuring Demme himself, David Byrne, and Janet Maslin.

STOP MAKING SENSE is considered by many to be the greatest rock concert film EVER!!

J. Hailey writes:

David Byrne walks onto the stage and does a solo "Psycho Killer." Jerry Harrison, Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz join him for two more songs. The crew is busy, still setting up. Then, three more musicians and two back-up singers join the band. Everybody sings, plays, harmonizes, dances, and runs. They change instruments and clothes. Bryne appears in the Big Suit. The backdrop is often black, but sometimes it displays words, images, or children's drawings. The band cooks for 18 songs, the lyrics are clear, the house rocks. In this concert film, the Talking Heads hardly talk, don't stop, and always make sense.

Reserve your seat in advance and make a donation to tonight's nonprofit recipient, 4th Dimension Recovery Center. This community space provides a fun and safe environment for young people in drug and alcohol recovery to take action, build community, gain knowledge, and become empowered.

About JOIN: connecting the street to a home:

"JOIN exists to support the efforts of homeless individuals and families to transition out of homelessness into permanent housing. Our efforts are directed at individuals sleeping outside or in their car in the Portland Metro area. Our service provision is not dependent on age, gender, race, ethnicity, faith, culture, language, sexual identity, specific diagnosis, or identifiable issue.

JOIN is committed to preserving the dignity, humanity, and uniqueness of each person that we work with on their path back to housing stability. To achieve this, we will:

  • strive to ensure that all of our programs and services are equitable in both access and outcomes regardless of a person’s race, ethnicity, faith, culture, language, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation or family status,
  • operate with the knowledge that certain communities are significantly over-represented among those experiencing homelessness in Portland/Multnomah County and that there are disparities in outcomes for members of those communities,
  • pursue effective strategies and devote dedicated time and resources at every level of our organization to address these disparities.

These efforts are performed in service to the vision of a community where outcomes cannot be predicated based on a person’s perceived identity."

Awake, A Dream From Standing Rock is a feature-length documentary directed by Academy Award nominated filmmaker and activist Josh Fox (Gasland, How To Let Go Of The World And Learn To Love Everything Climate Can’t Change), Academy Award nominated filmmaker James Spione (Incident In New Baghdad) and indigenous filmmaker and Digital Smoke Signals founder Myron Dewey.

From the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, we can learn a deep mode of engagement with the world. One that reminds us that we do not have to act alone as individuals, but rather, can find our strength as a collective of ecological beings in cahoots with the larger breathing world.

First, join us for the Planetary Dance movement ritual on Saturday, July 29, where we dedicate our art and our dance to benefit the waters of the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Then, widen the frame of perception to include all water, and those who protect the most vulnerable parts of our world, both human and elemental.

Awake, A Dream from Standing Rock will deepen and inspire our sense of stewardship, and give context to our practices throughout this year’s Life.Art.Being festival.

More details and the official trailer can be viewed on the ticket page. Proceeds to benefit Indigenous Media Fund and Pipeline Fighers Fund.

Aided by his exiled band of genetic supermen, Khan (Ricardo Montalban) - brilliant renegade of 20th century Earth - has raided Space Station Regula One, stolen a top secret device called Project Genesis, wrested control of another Federation starship, and now schemes to set a most deadly trap for his old enemy Kirk... with the threat of a universal Armageddon!

A film screening of Nowhere To Hide, a benefit for KBOO Community Radio
Clinton Street Theater

NOWHERE TO HIDE: "More of a message in a bottle to the West than a documentary." Maybe the most disturbing aspect of watching “Nowhere to Hide,” Zaradasht Ahmed’s gripping portrait of a male nurse in Iraq, is accepting how empathy itself has become collateral damage. Detachment may be a survival mechanism, but for Nori Sharif, a young father of four and a dedicated medic in an emergency hospital not far from Baghdad, it’s a luxury he can’t afford. And when he’s handed a small video camera by his director and asked to film his life, the resulting diary of perseverance and suffering has a raw immediacy that’s both appropriate and involving. #KBOO #Peacenow #nomorewars #savethechildren #boycottoil #peace #Baghdad #worldpeacenow

The look is rough, the emotions always hovering near the surface. Yet, buoyed by Mr. Sharif’s cheery personality, these can sometimes be defiantly upbeat. Moments like this are few, though, as he documents the rising tide of danger and displacement that follows the 2011 withdrawal of coalition forces and the eventual arrival of the Islamic State. Throughout, his director (who was born and raised in Iraq and has been observing families in the region for years) maintains a determinedly hands-off approach. This allows Mr. Sharif’s bewilderment over what he calls “an undiagnosed war” to become the story, one that speaks specifically to the profoundly destabilizing nature of lengthy conflict.

It also honors those whose spirits appear indestructible.

“Everything is expensive in this country,” goes a lively song that plays at a wedding, “but sadness Is for free.” And the men dance.More of a message in a bottle to the West than a documentary." #KBOO #Peacenow #nomorewars #savethechildren #boycottoil #peace #Baghdad #worldpeacenow

It also permits us to honor those whose spirits appear indestructible.

“Everything is expensive in this country,” goes a lively song that plays at a wedding, “but sadness you can get for free.” And the men dance.

This is a benefit for the Japanese Incarceration Mobile Workshop Project (JAIN Mobile), of which he has embedded himself in. The group is visiting internment sites and interviewing survivors as inspiration in preparation of a multi-media symphonic piece next year.

You won't want to miss this intimate experience, filled with new and old songs, and stories of their trip so far. He will be playing a stripped down acoustic set with fellow musician and ethnomusicologist, Julian Saporitti. This is an all ages show!

Kishi Bashi is the pseudonym of singer, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter Kaoru Ishibashi. After studing film scoring at Berklee College of Music he become a renowned violinist. Ishibashi has recorded and toured internationally as a violinist with diverse artists such as Regina Spektor, Sondre Lerche, and most recently, the Athens, Georgia-based indie rock band, of Montreal.

From 2004-2010, Julian Saporiti fronted the Berklee trained indie-rock group The Young Republic. After releasing several well received albums and touring extensively around North America and Europe, Saporiti relocated to Laramie, Wyoming to enjoy the outdoors and pursue a master’s degree in American Studies. After completing his course work, Saporiti took a job lecturing at the University of Wyoming where he still offers summer courses. While living out west, he made several trips to the remains of the Heart Mountain Japanese Incarceration camp in northwest Wyoming. These trips made a profound impact and inspired him to begin interviewing camp survivors and researching the music performed in the camps. He is currently living in Providence, Rhode Island, continuing this research, writing songs, and pursuing a PhD at Brown University.

Clinton Street Resistance presents Clueless, benefits Jhamtse Gatsal
Clinton Street Theater

Jane Austen might never have imagined that her 1816 novel Emma could be turned into a fresh and satirical look at ultra-rich teenagers in a Beverly Hills high school. Cher (Alicia Silverstone) and Dionne (Stacey Dash), both named after "great singers of the past that now do infomercials," are pampered upper-class girls who care less about getting good grades than wearing the right clothes and being as popular as possible. But Cher, who lives with her tough yet warm-hearted lawyer dad (Dan Hedaya) and hunky, sensitive stepbrother (Paul Rudd), also has an innate urge to help those less fortunate -- like the two introverted teachers she brings together ("negotiating" herself improved grades in the process) and new friend Tai (Brittany Murphy), who starts out a geek and ends up a Cher prodigy. Cher also possesses her own sensitive side, and she is looking for the perfect boyfriend, whom she ends up finding where she least expected.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Jhamtse Gatsal, a community, a school, and a home for about 90 children ranging in age from toddler to adolescent. Jhamtse Gatsal lies in the district of Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh, India, and the children come from nearby villages. Each of these children has a background of adversity. The driving goal of Ghamtse Gatsal is to provide these children with better lives, helping them to achieve their fullest potential.

Network film screening benefitting Education Without Borderrs
Clinton Street Theater

The Clinton Street Resistance Series will be showing Network on Monday, September 11.

In this lauded satire, veteran news anchorman Howard Beale (Peter Finch) discovers that he's being put out to pasture, and he's none too happy about it. After threatening to shoot himself on live television, instead he launches into an angry televised rant, which turns out to be a huge ratings boost for the UBS network. This stunt allows ambitious producer Diana Christensen (Faye Dunaway) to develop even more outrageous programming, a concept that she takes to unsettling extremes.

Tonight's nonprofit recipient is Education WithOut Borders (EWOB), Globalfam's partner organization, a federally recognized 501c3 non-profit. Globalfam Ent. and EWOB jointly conduct community projects in the U.S. and abroad, striving to develop social justice through education, expression and action.

NE PDX Neighborhood Emergency Teams Charity Day & Unprepared Screening
The Oregon Public House

The Portand Neighborhood Emergency Teams wil be one of the Oregon Public House Charity Partners from February - June 15, 2018. The NET program for all of Portland stands to raise as much as $8,000 - $10,000 during that time.

There are also benefits for each neighbor NET, no matter where your NET is located in Portland. NETs may raise funds for themselves on Monday nights (even before February) by hosting a Charity Day event. The entire OPH building is yours to use, including the large 300-seat ballroom upstairs. Kids are welcome, and a play area is available.

The event on Monday, September 18 is your chance to see how your NET (or other NPO) can conduct its own event. Ideas include game nights, pub trivia quizzes (equipment and supplies available from the Piedmont NET), raffles, drawings, distribution of information and supplies. You name it!

Proceeds from this event will go to the Piedmont, Boise-Humboldt-Eliot, and Concordia-Woodlawn-Vernon NETs. Come join us for fun, food, and libations! If you want to sign up as a volunteer greeter to tell the uniformed about the NETs, use the SignUpGenius page here:

All day Sep. 18 will be a Charity Day for N/NE Portland NET teams Boise/Eliot/Humboldt, Piedmont, and Concordia/Woodlawn/Vernon. Come by anytime, get a beer and chat with a NET or PBEM employee about preparedness!

Sound Immersion Fundraiser for "Friends of the Columbia Gorge"
Bikram Yoga Fremont St

Sound Event to raise support for "Friends of the Columbia Gorge"

Sound + Intention = Healing ~ Jonathan Goldman

Simply come, relax, and immerse yourself in sound while together we will hold and align our intention of healing for our forests, animals, and community.

All donations will go directly to "Friends of the Columbia Gorge" If you are unable to attend the event, and would still like to contribute to this organization, please let Danelle or Gretchen know and we will help take care of that before September 26th.

~Note from the organization~ "Before a single sapling can be planted or any trails can be rebuilt, plans for restoration and future recreation need to be created, debated and finally implemented. Friends is the only nonprofit organization dedicated entirely to ensuring that the beautiful and wild Columbia Gorge remains a place apart, an unspoiled treasure for generations to come. What gets decided in the next year or two will affect the Gorge for decades. Join us and have a voice in that decision making.

Your membership gift will allow us to continue our work to protect the Gorge and in addition take steps to help the Gorge emerge from this disaster as a place our kids and grandkids will love and treasure as much as we have."
