Awake: A Dream From Standing Rock Screening, a benefit for Indigenous Media Fund and Pipeline Fighers Fund.
Clinton Street Theater

Movie Night for Life.Art.Being Integrative Arts Festival Wednesday, August 2 at 7:00 p.m. Clinton Street Theater pre-booked tickets $10 before July 25.

Learn more at www.lifeartbeing.org

We are honored to screen this newly released film, telling the story of the #NODAPL Native-led resistance against the construction of the $3.7 billion Dakota Access Pipeline under the Missouri River at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.

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.

10% Day for JOIN @ Food Fight!
Food Fight!

Please come in and shop at both Stark and Halsey on Sunday, July 30 because 10% of our day's sales will benefit JOIN: connecting the street to a home.

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."

For more info and to donate online, please visit joinpdx.org and facebook.com/joinpdx


JOIN: connecting the street to a home - JOIN exists to support the efforts of homeless people - families and individuals - to move off the street into permanent housing.

JOIN is focused on creating a community where if homelessness exists, it is limited to a short-term circumstance rather than a long term and chronic condition.

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
Taborspace

"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) portlandzinesymposium.org

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.
