Scream like Goku in front of City Hall (against Fascism) and Demand Utopia
Portland City Hall, 1221 SW 4th

Take a break from the dystopic Sept 10 counter protests to go full Super Saiyen in the name of our glorious solarpunk ecotopia which is totally possible for us to manifest, if only we scream loud enough

This is NOT a "weeaboo"-friendly event. This is a culturally inclusive event where we will scream like Goku in front of city hall and Demand Utopia.

NOTE: by the water front, there will be a Patriot prayer (alt-right) gathering and subsequent counter protest. We expect many of the counter protesters to stop by this event but hopefully none of the alt-right will be interested in a super saiyan screaming battle. Either way, Stay safe and travel with a buddy.

“This nonjudgmental show, which offers a safe place for good people to disagree and even, possibly, evolve spiritually, is a tonic for tough times.” –Dallas News

“[Hnath is] one of the brightest new voices of his generation.” –New York Times

Play Bio: What happens when we can no longer trust our leaders to guide us in the right direction? Do you accept the unknown or do you hold fast to your beliefs and reject what is new? In Hnath's The Christians, faith leader, Paul, begins to question what he has always known to be true. The divide amongst members of the same church address questions that to some could be the determining factor to their afterlife. Prophetic in its exploration of the commercialization of religion, this play spotlights the sensitive and challenging obstacles of all successful organizations.

Content Advisory: This poignant drama about personal faith and organized religion tackles big questions and subjects that may interest audiences in middle school and up.

Approximate runtime is 1 hour and 37 minutes. There will be no intermission.

About the Organization: Voice for Voiceless Theatre has a goal to pair conscience and challenging theatre with humanitarian needs in this ever-changing and often traumatizing times in local and global communities. This season they are focusing on the theme of "breaking traditions," taking a look at cultural, societal, and economic customs and creating dramatic presentations that address questions and highlight those that go against the norm. As a 501(c)(3) organization, Voice for Voiceless Theatre couples each production with other nonprofits that work in areas highlighted in the performances explicitly dedicating all net proceeds to those organizations.

Racial Equity Exploration: A Theatrical, Interactive Experience
Brentwood-Darlington Community Center, 7211 SE 62nd Avenue, Portland, OR 97206

We invite you to continue your racial equity journey...

Drawing upon popular education, Theater of the Oppressed, and critical race theory models, we will collectively create a container for deeper learning. Together, we will unpack theoretical frameworks and gain practical tools for deepening our shared commitment to racial equity. No previous theater experience necessary.

Because we work on the intersectionality of equity, our work is heavily trauma-informed. We recognize racism as traumatic, in terms of historical trauma and internalized oppression, and as a root cause of many other inequities that result in trauma. Our co-facilitator team will strive to carry the emotional labor and burden of this work during the workshop. As people of color, we are often asked by white folks to explain equity and racism, which exploits our lived experiences and in extreme cases fetishizes those experiences; we recognize this as oppression, and do not allow for it in our workshops. However, we as your facilitators welcome your questions, welcome hard conversations, and invite you fully participate without hesitation.

In this workshop we will:

  • Recognize how racism is operationalized and baked into our laws and social policies

  • Develop a framework for understanding how race and racism operate both in our systems and our individual lives

Learning goals:

  • How to recognize moments of oppression

  • Practice interrupting oppression

  • Learn how to use equity, diversity, and inclusion language responsibly

Snacks and beverages provided. Ample free parking.

YWCA of Greater Portland's 26th Annual Inspire Luncheon
The Sentinel Hotel

The YWCA’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. That’s why in the past year thousands of people have turned to the YWCA seeking ways to constructively respond to the distractions pouring out of Washington DC, Hollywood, and nature in figurative and literal tidal waves. And we’ve provided them with opportunities through our numerous programs and advocacy efforts because we believe change happens individually as well as systemically.

Still, we all hunger for good news, for hope, for something to remind us of our shared humanity.

And that’s what we want to share with you this year at the YWCA’s Annual Inspire Luncheon on April 24, 2018, from 11:00 am to 1:15 pm at the Sentinel Hotel in downtown Portland. This year, Imago Theatre will be providing a performance that will force you to suspend your disbelief with their combination of mime, acrobatics, and humor. Internationally acclaimed, Carol Triffle and Jerry Mouawad, the creators of Imago, have been called alchemists, magicians, theatrical animators and physical comedians.

In the words of the Boston Globe:

“Rare theatrical event – family-friendly entertainment … lively … inventive … remarkably acrobatic … mysterious … deeply satisfying … sensational … thrilling … hysterical … truly goofy fun … now, that’s entertainment …”

We hope you will join us for this opportunity to support the work of the YWCA of Greater Portland while enjoying Imago Theatre. I truly believe that on April 24th, you will leave saying to yourself and others, “Now that was time well spent! I am so glad I went!”

SPONSORSHIPS
