Ear to Ear: Collective Transmission

When: Jun 30, 2020 6:30-8:30 pm

Where: THIS CLASS WILL TAKE PLACE VIA ZOOM. ATTENDEES WILL BE SENT A LINK UPON REGISTRATION.

Join Other Desert Radio founders Caroline Partamian and Ethan Primason to examine, explore, and converse about community, transmission, and distance. This workshop will dive into the history of transmission-based projects to glean how the medium is rife for community building and experimental communication. Using these examples as a guide, participants are invited to intentionally interact with their space to engage deeper with an invisible and anonymous audience who will be transported by their work. Date: This one-time workshop meets on Tuesday, June 30 from 6:30-8:30PM EST. Audience: Open to all. Materials: Participants will need a computer with internet access and some type of audio recording device, which could be a phone or a field recorder. Caroline Partamian is a sound and visual artist influenced by her training in dance. She works closely with the concept of abreaction —the extraction of dormant memory stored within a muscle, resurfaced through physical movement, of which an individual was previously unaware; these memories span the spectrum and can take many forms—traumatic, erotic, comforting, etc. By focusing on the process rather than anticipated result, her work encourages what can be revealed when one becomes conscious of their kinetic movement in the process of creation. She has shown work at Marfa Open, Wassaic Project, Otion Front, Flux Factory, Anthology Film Archives, Babycastles, Compound Yucca Valley, and more. Ethan Primason is a sound artist, recording engineer, and musician. His works and practices explore the multisensory context and placeness of audio. His works have been shown at Pioneer Works, Sargent’s Daughters, Marinaro Gallery, Zaha Hadid 520 W 28th street, Outpost Artist Resources, Wassaic Project, Clocktower Radio, Marfa Open, WGXC Wavefarm, and BoxoPROJECTS. Please note, this online workshop will begin promptly at the listed start time. In order to ensure the quality of instruction for all participants, late entry will not be permitted.

Freedom School: Read Aloud!

When: Tuesday, July 7, 2020

 

With millions of children (and many of us) at home as communities respond to the coronavirus crisis, we are looking for a way to bring great CDF Freedom Schools®  books to children who do not have books in their homes. The CDF Freedom Schools community knows the power of Read Aloud, and now we want to take that online. We're asking any partners who can participate to record a video of an at-home Read Aloud and send it to us. We hope to collect Read Aloud videos that we can share with our networks on social media, while we also encourage people across the country to record their own Read Aloud and share it with us, their children, and their friends and families. Check out these examples of a CDF staff-led Read Aloud and a Read Aloud from our partners at The Listening,  Inc. CDF Freedom Schools program to get inspired! Please send us your videos at fsphotos@childrensdefense.org or post them on Instagram and Twitter, tagging us and using #ReadAloudforKids. Please follow us on Instagram at @childdefender1973. Please feel free to share with your networks, friends, and family.

There is a small stipend available and rehearsals will be worked around actor schedules. Character Descriptions: CHRIS CHRISTOPHERSON (M late 40-50s), captain of the coal barge Simeon Winthrop; good-humored, fond of drink, superstitious; must be able to do/learn a Swedish accent; POC encouraged to audition MAT BURKE (M late 20s- 30s), coal stoker on a steamship; strong, rough, bold, and romantic; must be able to do/learn an Irish accent; POC encouraged to audition MARTHY ( F 30s-50s), a seasoned prostitute who gets her way, withered, vivacious, quick-witted; POC encouraged to audition; musicians highly encouraged to audition (and bring their instrument!)
