      At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery (WSB sponsor):

      4000 Miles
      By Amy Herzog
      Directed by Mathew Wright

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00
      Center Seniors – $31.00 Side Seniors – $30.00

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      Mindful Living Workshop
      Thursday, January 29 at Chaco Canyon (West Seattle) from 6:30 pm–8:30 pm

      Please join us for an evening of discovering your true self as you learn to become more mindful in your daily life.

      Mindfulness is the energy of being aware and fully alive in this present moment. In this workshop, you will learn to bring your mind and body more into harmony, allowing you to be more aware of both your inner and outer world and less on “auto-pilot.” While awake in this present moment, we find we are not held back from our past conditioning nor are we fearful of what our future may hold.

      This workshop will help you to:

      Relax and de-stress
      Manage difficult emotions
      Become aware of self-limiting habits
      Access your true potential
      Live a healthier and happier life

      This workshop will include:

      Guided meditations
      Mindful eating techniques
      Gentle yoga (from your chair)
      Conscious observation and breathing techniques
      Best practices for living mindfully

      Cost: $40 per person. Limited space.

      Tap into your inner wisdom and reserve a space online at
      http://www.inmindfulness.com/events.html

      Come listen to Dave Holo and his talented musical mates! Here’s what Dave has to say about his own musical journey, “Stumbling onto the local traditional jazz scene a few years after moving to Seattle was huge for me. I’ve been blessed in many ways. Regardless, it would be hard for me to overstate the impact of jazz on my life. I’ve met most of my friends through jazz; I’ve traveled; I’ve played and recorded with some amazing musicians. I really love those nights when I have my best stuff, the band has it all working, and we make a real connection with an audience … wow! It’s pretty heady stuff!”

      Free & All Ages

      In the summer of 1964, the Beatles embarked on a record-breaking pandemonium-inducing tour of America and Canada. The Beatles and Me on Tour presents the first chronicle of that tour told by an insider: author/journalist Ivor Davis, then a young reporter for the London Daily Express. Ivor traveled with the Beatles as the only British newspaper writer invited on the entire tour. Through thirty-four days and twenty-four cities, Davis traveled with the Beatles watching them make rock history. He enjoyed unrestricted access to the four boys fresh from Liverpool—from their hotel suites to backstage at concert arenas to their private jet. We’re excited to welcome Ivor Davis to Easy Street for a night of storytelling and book signing!

    3. Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra’s “Super String Saturday” @ Chief Sealth International High School
      10:00 am – 1:00 pm

      Southwest Seattle Super String Saturday
      Presented by Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras
      Saturday January 31, 2015
      from 10 am–1 pm
      Chief Sealth International High School

      Southwest Seattle Super String Saturday at Chief Sealth International High School, is a free community event.

      Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras (SYSO) presents this annual celebration of its public school partnership program, the Southwest Seattle String Project. Violin, viola, cello and bass students from Roxhill, Arbor Heights, Sanislo, Concord, Highland Park, and West Seattle Elementary Schools as well as Denny International Middle School have been receiving support by professional musicians from SYSO throughout the year. At this free event, the students will all come together to hear a mini-concert performed by Seattle Youth Symphony, one of America’s top youth orchestras, and then go on to engage in interactive learning sessions led by the Youth Symphony musicians.

      The string students will also have the chance to perform “side-by-side” with the Youth Symphony, giving many of these beginning musicians a chance to experience being part of a full orchestra.

      Seattle City Councilmember Tom Rasmussen and Office of Arts and Culture Director Randy Engstrom will be on hand to welcome families and meet the young musicians. The event is for the Southwest string music students and their families, as well as community members interested in attending the free mini-concert by SYSO. For event information, contact Kathleen Allen, SYSO Director of Education at Kathleen@syso.org or (206) 362-2300.

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

    5. Feet First 3rd Annual Stairway Walks Day @ West Seattle
      10:00 am – 12:00 pm

      On Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, join Feet First for Stairway Walks Day. Urban explorers are invited to join one of free, guided neighborhood walks featuring outdoor stairways in West Seattle. Space is limited to 35 people per walk. Please RSVP in advance at www.feetfirst.org or http://stairwaywalksday2015.bpt.me/ (when the signup period opens).

      The stairs, many of them more than 100 years old, form a network of “scenic byways” for neighborhood discovery – a priceless asset for outdoor fun, fitness and health. The stairway routes featured on Stairway Walks Day are from Cathy and Jake Jaramillo’s book Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods. The book is intended to help urban adventurers discover and appreciate the beautiful greenspaces, history, art and architecture that make up the vivid fabric of our neighborhoods.

      According to author and Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Cathy Jaramillo, “Stairways are truly the scenic byways to neighborhoods, and we’re always curious about what’s at the top – or the bottom. They get you to, and between, places you’d probably never know about otherwise. We’re excited about celebrating them with so many people on Stairway Walks Day!”

      More about Feet First: Since 2001, Feet First has worked to ensure that all communities in Washington are walkable. Walking is a vital transportation mode that connects communities, reduces pollution, improves health and physical fitness, and allows people to explore their natural environment.

      4000 Miles
      By Amy Herzog
      Directed by Mathew Wright

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00
      Center Seniors – $31.00 Side Seniors – $30.00

      Book Description: In 1959 Florence Green, a kindhearted widow with a small inheritance, risks everything to open a bookshop – the only bookshop – in the seaside town of Hardborough. By making a success of a business so impractical, she invites the hostility of the town’s less prosperous shopkeepers. By daring to enlarge her neighbors’ lives, she crosses Mrs. Gamart, the local arts doyenne. Florence’s warehouse leaks, her cellar seeps, and the shop is apparently haunted. Only too late does she begin to suspect the truth: a town that lacks a bookshop isn’t always a town that wants one.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      9:00 am – 8:00 pm

      On February 11th from 9 am – 8 pm, South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) will host a free F.A.F.S.A. (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) workshop for students and community members interested in learning more about how to pay for college.

      The event is part of a statewide initiative administered by the Washington Student Achievement council called “College Goal in Washington,” that is designed to increase low income, first generation, and underrepresented students’ completion of the F.A.F.S.A. Financial aid experts from South will be onsite to work individually with students and families and answer questions about how to pay for college and how to access financial aid successfully. Students who are ineligible for the F.A.F.S.A. due to citizenship status may be eligible to file the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (W.A.S.F.A.) to help them access other financial resources that will help them pay for college.

      Last year, Washington State was first among all 34 College Goal Sunday states, serving 2,421 potential F.A.F.S.A. filers. This is South Seattle College’s first year participating in this campaign. In addition to receiving help with their F.A.F.S.A. forms, representatives from Student Outreach will also be on-hand to offer guided tours of South’s campus.

      For more information about the event, please contact Lyanne O’Connell, Financial Literacy Specialist, at 206.934.5220, or by email at: Lyanne.oconnell@seattlecolleges.edu. For more information about the statewide and national campaigns, please contact Anna Batie, College Goal Washington State Coordinator, at 360-753-7856 or annab@wsac.wa.gov.

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      By Amy Herzog

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Beyond the Dollars: The Real Impact of Long Term Care @ West Seattle (Admiral) Library
    9. 4000 Miles @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery (WSB sponsor):

      4000 Miles
      By Amy Herzog
      Directed by Mathew Wright

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00
      Center Seniors – $31.00 Side Seniors – $30.00
      Under 25 – $15.00 Side Youth – $15.00

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.
