      About the Presenters:
      Joleen Winther Hughes is the founder, principal and fearless leader of Hughes Media Law Group. With experience that spans the entertainment and digital media world, Joleen started HMLG specifically to support entrepreneurs, burgeoning media properties and service providers who push the boundaries of media and technology. As a longtime entrepreneur herself, Joleen understands the trials and tribulations of starting and running a successful business. In addition to fronting HMLG, Joleen is a popular lecturer and panelists for several national and international media and technology organizations including Digital Hollywood, the American Bar Association and the Application Developer’s Alliance. Before dreaming up what is now HMLG, Joleen was Senior Counsel at RealNetworks, Inc., where she worked with major sports leagues, media companies, television networks, movie studios and record labels to create the first on-line consumer content subscription service and was responsible for developing Real’s casual gaming licensing strategy. Prior to her legal career, Joleen owned a successful artist management and production company during the height of the 90′s Seattle music explosion working with music legends like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains (just to name-drop a few!).

      Mackenzie McAninch has been in the music business for over ten years as booking agent, promoter, band manager, writer and owner of the nationally recognized and award-winning blog Randomville.com. In 2012, Mackenzie sold Randomville and became the booking agent for Seattle band Ayron Jones and the Way, quickly helping the band get shows with artists like Robert Cray and landing festivals like Bumbershoot. In 2013, he became the band’s manager and also began working as the booking agent for the Seattle band Funky 2 Death. 2014 is starting out great for Mackenzie. In just three months, he has helped steer his band clients to collaborations with The Seattle Seahawks and Sounders organizations, performances with the likes of BB King, and nationally-broadcasted shows on NPR. Mackenzie is currently spending much of his time planning his bands’ upcoming national touring schedules and music licensing projects.

    9. Fixers Collective & ‘Ask an Expert’ @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
      6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

      Combining the best of both worlds, Ask an Expert & DIY Skill Share will now be joining the West Seattle Fixers Collective on the 3rd Thursday of every month!

      Thursday, April 18th, 6:00-9:00 pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center.

      In the broadest sense, a Fixers’ Collective is a group of folks who love to fix and mend things, which could be any old thing from broken blenders to ripped sweaters to antique dentist drills. Take it apart, put it back together, figure out how it works, refuse to throw it away, and get to know others who do the same! What the collective works on depends entirely on who shows up but you can be rest assured that there will be plenty of creativity involved. Adding to this fun, The Tool Library also brings together some experienced DIY coaches who are willing to answer any questions that you may have on your current projects, future plans, or anything else you liked to discuss. Our coaches have expertise in a variety of areas, including solar power, water harvesting, green architecture & building, permaculture, and urban gardening.

      These open and informal community meetups offer an opportunity to bounce project ideas off fellow DIYers and maybe receive some advice in the process, if you like. It’s also a great time to show off what you’ve been working on.From small little blenders to entire home renovations, these meetups offer you a chance to explore all of sorts of DIY fixes!

      Ask an Expert brings together our community and hosts some experienced DIY (do-it-yourself) coaches who are willing to answer any questions that you may have on your current projects, future plans, or anything else you like to discuss.

      Each month the Tool Library brings together our community’s experts to provide advice on your home and garden ideas. From light-hearted transformations (like early blooming flowers) to heavy-hitting ones like rainwater catchment, building an addition, or becoming an urban farmer and everything in-between, our experts will give you the power to understand and tackle your challenge.

      Bring your inspiration, inquiring minds, and projects. They’ll bring the experts and the pizza!

      p.s. Tell your friends! You do not have to be a West Seattle resident to participate in this event or borrow tools from the West Seattle Tool Library!

      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      The Edible Garden Series includes events and presentations for all ages at Library branches around the city in April and May. Learn about edible gardening, food advocacy and sustainability in coordination with our local partner organizations.

Volunteers can expect to pitch in for a variety of restoration activities including removing invasive plants, mulching, and forest maintenance. Planting occurs October-March, and summer months also include forest monitoring.

      We blend art and nature in everything that we do. Performing artists “play in the woods” during many of our work parties, and include singers and instrumentalists. Learn more and sign up today at www.naturec.org/volunteer.

    3. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      Islamic Art: Mirror of the Invisible World” film screening and discussion facilitated by Randy Nelson and Esther Sunde takes place Thursday, April 24, 12-2 pm in RAH 125 (map) as part of the Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys project.

      The film explores the richness of Islamic art in objects big and small, from great ornamented palaces and the play of light in monumental mosques to the exquisite beauty of ceramics, carved boxes, paintings and metal work. It revels in the use of color and finds commonalities in a shared artistic heritage with the West and East. The film also examines the unique ways in which Islamic art turns calligraphy and the written word into masterpieces and develops water into an expressive, useful art form.

      7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      Friday and Saturday, April 25 & 26 at 7:30 pm, Kenyon Hall present famed theater organist Dennis James and Belle of the Hall Connie Corrick, in a show featuring our Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Organ: “Take Your Girlie to the Movies.”

      Master musician Dennis James returns to the Mighty Wurlitzer, and Belle of the Hall Connie Corrick joins him in their tribute to the Silent Movie Days. Featured will be Sherlock, Jr., Buster Keaton’s immortal 1924 silent movie comedy.

      Dennis spends the majority of his time traveling the world performing in solo organ, glass armonica, and piano concerts; for silent movies; and with major symphony orchestras. He gained fame in Seattle as the originator of Silent Movie Mondays at the Paramount Theater. Dennis meticulously works out his accompaniments to silent films, choosing music from the era, and illuminating the action as only he can. To experience the intimacy of his performing on our instrument, lovingly and expertly curated by Bob White, is a rare treat.

    5. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      rock musical to our stage. Telling the story of the “Tribe” – a group of politically active
      long-haired hippies of the Age of Aquarius, living a bohemian life while fighting against
      conscription into the Vietnam War – HAIR is both a joyous celebration of youth and a
      poignant journey through 1960′s America. Through all its peace, love, and psychedelic
      colors, HAIR is a social and cultural phenomenon that remains just as vital and relevant today.

      Friday and Saturday, April 25 & 26 at 7:30 pm, Kenyon Hall present famed theater organist Dennis James and Belle of the Hall Connie Corrick, in a show featuring our Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Organ: “Take Your Girlie to the Movies.”

      Master musician Dennis James returns to the Mighty Wurlitzer, and Belle of the Hall Connie Corrick joins him in their tribute to the Silent Movie Days. Featured will be Sherlock, Jr., Buster Keaton’s immortal 1924 silent movie comedy.

      Dennis spends the majority of his time traveling the world performing in solo organ, glass armonica, and piano concerts; for silent movies; and with major symphony orchestras. He gained fame in Seattle as the originator of Silent Movie Mondays at the Paramount Theater. Dennis meticulously works out his accompaniments to silent films, choosing music from the era, and illuminating the action as only he can. To experience the intimacy of his performing on our instrument, lovingly and expertly curated by Bob White, is a rare treat.

      Connie Corrick has been brightening our stage for over twenty years. She combines a shimmering soprano voice with consummate acting ability, and she’ll put both to good use this weekend in this unique and entertaining family-friendly show.

      Reserved table seats are $14. Row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle & high school students are $5. Pre-school children are free.

      To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation.

      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

In order to continue providing these essential services, they are reaching out to the community for support. Having represented and assisted survivors throughout Washington, SVLC clients can attest to the significant impact of our services — see prezi.com/w9onrp8oq14l/my-unsung-hero for more.

      Statistics on sexual assaults are alarming: one in three women have been a victim of sexual abuse and/or sexual assault; one in six men have been a victim of sexual abuse and/or sexual assault; less than twenty percent of victims will ever report the sexual violence they experienced; trauma of sexual abuse or assault impacts a survivor’s health, psychology, financial stability, personal and professional relationships and overall well-being.

      In response, we are boldly meeting the needs of sexual assault survivors in Washington through holistic legal representations; an anonymous statewide hotline for survivors, advocates and attorneys to inform them of the survivor’s rights, review legal options and connect the caller to legal and social services resources; and technical assistance/trainings (in 2013, SVLC provided trainings to over 200 judges, prosecutors and civil attorneys).

      SLVC clients range in age from 12 to 70+ and, although there are no income restrictions on qualifying for our services, we focus on representing especially vulnerable populations such as immigrants, members of the LGBTQ community, the elderly, low-income and individuals with physical or mental disabilities. Please help by making a tax-deductible donation (see vlawcenter.org/section_donate/index.htm for more) so SVLC may continue providing vital services to survivors and the greater community.

      Come learn more about SVLC, listen to live tunes provided by Salty’s Pianoman Vic Janusz who will also emcee the event. Just for attending Tuesday Tune-Up, you’ll be entered in a free drawing to win a gift basket. Join us for food, drinks, entertainment, fun people and a beautiful sunset.

      WHERE: Salty’s on Alki Beach Café-Bar
      WHY: Party for a cause! Help raise funds for SVLC.

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.”

      Our area’s latest community-fueled school-playground project – for Pathfinder K-8 School on Pigeon Point – is proceeding, and welcoming more help! Outreach co-chairs Holli Margell and Toni Wells share this update:

      We have chosen a design company that has the skills to translate our needs and dreams into reality: Johnson Southerland. Their designs can be played on at Seward Park, Salmon Bay, and Concord Elementary.

      Mark your calendars for our first community meeting on April 30th, 5:30-7 pm at Pathfinder K-8 School. Please come, and bring your kids. Your participation at this meeting counts not only toward shaping our playground design, but also toward volunteer hours required for our next grant application (the big one that will help us actually build it).

      The time you commit to volunteer will help us get the Large Neighborhood Matching Grant to build it. For example, attending each design meeting (3 x 2 hours) equals 6 pledged hours. We also need folks who can put up posters, help host our three community meetings, and make sure every family in the community knows about the project.

      poignant journey through 1960′s America. Through all its peace, love, and psychedelic
      colors, HAIR is a social and cultural phenomenon that remains just as vital and relevant today.

      Evening will include 50/50 Raffle, Appetizers, Beverages, Cash Bar, and “Cello Shots”. Awards for the Top 5 Performances of the evening.

      As the demand for music programs increases, WSCO continues to provide musicians in the community an artistic outlet. In recent years their three orchestra groups have almost reached room capacity and many incoming musicians are placed on a waiting list.

      Now in WSCO’s 12th season, the Board of Directors have proposed to launch two new music programs that will enable them to accommodate the increasing growth and continue to provide community musicians opportunities for mentorship, performance, and growth. The proposed new groups include a Wind Symphony and an Introduction to Music Class. This fund-raising event will help with startup costs for these new groups.

    3. Tai Chi on the Beach at Alki
      9:00 am – 9:00 am

      Welcome: If you have a heartbeat or can draw a breath, you are welcome to come and join us. No experience or prior knowledge needed.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      10:30 am – 12:00 pm

      From Stewart Wechsler of Stewart’s Stewardship Adventures in Nature:

      Join Stewart on an adventure with your family around Camp Long’s 68 acres of habitat. Engage with and learn about everything (partly depending on the season) from the salamanders to the slugs, the Barred Owls to the Cooper’s Hawks in the woods, the dragonflies by the pond and butterflies to the hoverflies and snakes in the sunny spots, and from the Stinging Nettles to Hedge Nettles. Help the native community by learning an alien weed and pulling one. If you can see it, hear it or smell it Stewart can probably tell you what it is and some of its fascinating story! While the program will be quite kid friendly, regardless of your knowledge level, you will be able to learn things you didn’t know and have fun doing so.

      E-mail or call to reserve a space, ecostewart@gmail.com / 206 932-7225 (land line / message), with the number of kids and adults. Drop-ins can check if there is room. There may be cancellations for the toughest weather conditions, so check this website or the outgoing message on my land line (@ 206 932-7225) for cancellations if more than either a light rain or moderate wind, or very cold are in the forecast.

      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”

      • All genres welcome: solo, acoustic, electronica, full bands, and comedy of any type
      • 15 minutes/3 songs each (sometimes touring acts get a little extra time)
      • Ludwig house drums, Vox AC30 guitar amp, Yamaha G50410 guitar amp, Ashdown ABM500 bass amp, Shure mics, DIs, etc.

      Sign-up begins at 8:00 pm. Music starts at 9:00 pm.

      Sign-up sheet goes out every Wednesday at 8:00 pm sharp (trivia will still be in progress so don’t be alarmed). You must be present in person to sign up for an open mic slot. The only exception is bands on tour who have made arrangements in advance for a particular time.

      My name is Caylen Storm, I have been teaching Tai Chi locally for a few years and I would like to invite you and yours to join me for an informal hour of Tai Chi on every Saturday of the month, Spring Through Fall. The class is FREE so all you need to bring is a smile and the right clothes for the weather.

      The class, as always, is open to anyone curious about the marvelous art of Tai Chi. All we ask is that you dress for the weather and bring friends. The main focus of the class is in teaching people what they can do to improve the basic quality of daily life, i.e. smoother, deeper breathing, a more stable sense of balance, how to let stress pass by us rather than trapping it in our bodies, etc. We will be out in the fresh air, having a grand time and maybe even learning something before we’re done.

      When: We begin class at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday April 5th, 2014 and continue until September 27th, 2014.

      Where: We meet just West of the Statue of Liberty, but will move the class up or down the beach to accommodate the many festivals that occur during Summer.

      Contact Lao-Shi (teacher) Caylen Storm at 206-385- 8841 or Caylen@stormtaichi.com

      The West Duwamish Greenbelt needs you! Volunteer with Nature Consortium and help restore vital habitat in Seattle’s largest remaining forest. Volunteers are needed to help remove invasive plant species, mulch, clean up litter, and plant native trees and shrubs.

      Nature Consortium hosts volunteer restoration work parties year round. Currently we are working Tuesdays and Saturdays from 10 am-2 pm in the West Duwamish Greenbelt located in West Seattle. Come experience some fun in the forest as we engage in hands-on conservation work.

      We provide tools, gloves, and all the training you need to get started. Each work party begins with a short informal forest ecology workshop. Volunteers can expect to pitch in for a variety of restoration activities including removing invasive plants, mulching, and forest maintenance. Planting occurs October-March, and summer months also include forest monitoring.

      We blend art and nature in everything that we do. Performing artists “play in the woods” during many of our work parties, and include singers and instrumentalists. Learn more and sign up today at www.naturec.org/volunteer.

    4. Notes from the Job Search, West Seattle group @ C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)
      11:00 am – 11:00 am

      Job search help and networking opportunity. From the original announcement:

      Notes From the Job Search” is about helping people find new jobs. In the years we’ve been meeting at C&P Coffee we have laughed a great deal, we have met some really amazing people and a lot of them have found new jobs. The way we work is to break down job search into its component parts, study each of those and figure out how to use these parts in ways that give us the best chance of identifying and then getting a job where we will consistently exceed expectations. We start with our skills and strengths, then how to capture that in a resume. A resume that can be tuned to each specific job we apply to. We learn how new tools like Linkedin can be used as tools for helping our friends and allowing them to help us. Then we try to put this all together and into a campaign for a great job. If you are looking for a new job, we would love to see you at C&P Coffee, Tuesdays at 11 am.
