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.”

      10:00 am – 1:00 pm

      Children’s Academy of Seattle (WSB sponsor), a Spanish-immersion preschool now open in West Seattle, is having an open house on Saturday February 28th, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm:

      The program at Children’s Academy of Seattle supports optimal Spanish-language learning by tying language to a broad range of day-to-day activities. Children learn language best by experiencing it naturally, by being immersed in it.

      The benefits go beyond being bilingual. Exposure to another language, through immersion, provides cultural competency and sensitivity to others. Language immersion takes advantage of a child’s natural ability to rapidly acquire another language. At no time in life is this task easier than in early childhood.

      Children’s Academy of Seattle believes that young children develop to their fullest potential when they are allowed to enjoy life at an unhurried pace. Our program focuses on imagination and creative work and play. Our center offers a rich curriculum and hands-on learning, science, and social skills.

      Our staff has a minimum of five years teaching child development experience. Our high-quality program with experienced teachers ensures success in learning a second language.

      Children’s Academy of Seattle is at 2410 SW Juneau; call 206-466-1121 for information about enrollment, which is open now. You’re also invited to visit the preschool during an open house 10 am-1 pm on Saturday, February 28th.

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. Seattle Tilth info session for Master Composter training @ Chaco Canyon Organic Café
      6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Did you know that Seattle now prohibits food waste from going in the garbage? Food waste in landfills is a big problem, accounting for nearly one quarter of methane emissions in the US. Alternatively, when it’s kept out of the garbage and composted, food waste is an incredibly useful soil amendment, turning garbage into “gardener’s gold.” The benefits of compost are huge – reducing global warming, storm water pollution and waste, while building healthy soil and growing healthy plants.

      Now in its 30th year, Seattle Tilth offers the Master Composter / Soil Builder program in partnership with Seattle Public Utilities to train community members to become compost educators. Community members participate in 28 hours of classroom learning, hands-on practice and field trips. Learn how to compost while learning about soil science, natural yard care and recycling!

      Training includes eight sessions during four weeks starting on Tuesday, March 24 in Seattle’s Wallingford neighborhood (4649 Sunnyside Ave N). After the training, Master Composters contribute 35 hours of volunteer outreach teaching practical techniques to other community members. Volunteers work on projects of their own choosing – at schools, churches, community centers, businesses and community gardens.

      Apply by March 14
      The Master Composter program is for Seattle residents only. APPLY NOW. Applications are due March 14. Bilingual applicants are encouraged to apply.

      King County residents who live outside of Seattle are encouraged to apply to similar programs we offer in King County.

      Questions? Come to an Info Session!
      Interested and want to learn more about this program? Attend one of the following info sessions:

      Wednesday, March 4, 6-7 p.m. at Chaco Canyon in West Seattle (3770 SW Alaska St)
      Thursday, Mar. 5, 6-7 p.m. at Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands (5513 South Cloverdale Street)

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      We’ll be removing some Golden Raspberries that are taking over the Blueberries and also cutting back some blackberries that are encroaching from the green space. Check out the growth of our orchard if you haven’t been here for a while.

      Volunteers will have the opportunity to take home a raspberry plant after volunteering, as well as learn about growing food in our area. We have a limited amount of clippers and gloves, so if you can bring some it would be helpful. Tea will be served in the morning. Bring some additional water, be healthy!

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS STARTS AT 8 PM – SORRY FOR THE TIME-CHANGE SOFTWARE GLITCH SUGGESTING OTHERWISE*

      BDENIE commemorates the centenary of the premiere of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “All-night vigil,” which took place in Moscow on March 10th, 1915. Rachmaninoff wrote his 70-minute, 15-movement vigil in January and February of 1915, and it was first performed as a fundraiser for war relief efforts.

      Rachmaninoff’s masterpiece proved to be so popular with both critics and the public that it was performed five more times within the month. Rachmaninoff based 10 of his 15 movements on extant chants from various traditional styles, including Greek, Kievan, and the Russian “Znamenny” style. The remaining five movements were entirely of the composer’s own creation, although he admitted their style to be “a conscious counterfeit of the ritual.” For this concert series, The Esoterics has expanded to 48 voices, and will intersperse Rachmaninoff’s movements with phrases of Slavonic chant. More concert information is available at http://www.theesoterics.org/concerts/season-2015/bdenie

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      *mature themes

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

      Chinglish
      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

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

      6:30 pm – 9:30 pm

      InspireSeattle Invites YOU to join us at our Social Forum: Saturday, March 14th at 6:30 pm. Remember “IT’S A POTLUCK!!” – so please help out and bring something to eat and to drink!

      Main discussion topic for this evening: Unintended Consequences of Energy Production and Usage

      Clearly energy drives our economy, communities and culture. Energy is core to our way of life today and in the future. We all understand that energy comes at a cost, both to our wallets and to our environment. The politics and power around energy production and usage are arguably the most perverse of any issue, both in the US and throughout the world. As with many things, often there exist unintended consequences with both energy production and usage. Also often these consequences are not well known, or even purposely kept from public view.

      This evening’s panel will discuss multiple unintended consequences of energy production and usage. Topics will include hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”), the recent “game-changer” in US energy production that has dramatically increased US oil and gas production and has been a key in our recent oil and gasoline price declines. A carbon-free energy source, nuclear energy, will be discussed. Of course climate change will be part of this discussion, but also key planetary boundaries needed for safe operations of life on our planet.

      Please join us for this important discussion!

      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      Please join us at the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center on Wednesday March 18 from 7-9 pm as we celebrate Women’s History Month with poetry readings by Native poets.

      Following on the heels of the successful 2013 production of I’M/MIGRATION, which featured artists in various performing arts disciplines, I’M/MIGRATION Unplugged presents an opportunity for poets to share their interpretation of movement across invisible yet very real boundaries by exploring the role of women today as influenced by the sociopolitical, economic and cultural boundaries in our communities. This event is donation only and is supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture, with partial funding from Seattle Arts and Culture.

      The Poets:

      Celeste Adame is an MFA Candidate in the inaugural class of the Lo-Rez program at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She’s been published in Yellow Medicine Review, As/Us, Santa Fe Literary Review and numerous IAIA student anthologies. When not writing, she makes her life in Auburn, WA with her family.

      Natalie Díaz was born in the Fort Mojave Indian Village in Needles, California. She is Mojave and an enrolled member of the Gila River Indian community. She is the author of the poetry collection When My Brother Was an Aztec (2012), which New York Times reviewer Eric McHenry described as an “ambitious..beautiful book.” Her honors and awards include the Nimrod/Hardman Pablo Neruda Prize for Poetry, the Louis Untermeyer Scholarship in Poetry from Bread Loaf, the Narrative Poetry Prize, and a Lannan Literary Fellowship.

      Nilka Wherrette is an Acéntos Poetry Fellow of Colombian descent who divides her time between Seattle and Colombia, S.A.. Her poetry explores contemporary issues as experienced through the lens of an indigenous, mixed race woman. She has a passion for exploring the marriage between poetry and stage, and her poem-dramas have recently been produced and performed on stages in Seattle and Los Angeles. She is currently a student in the “Low Rez” MFA program at the Institute of American Indian Arts, working on her first poetry manuscript.

      Where does the page leave off and the poet begin? A poet may be a truth-teller or scoundrel, a saint or sinner, depending on the day of the week-but it’s her poetry that really matters. For the March 18th, 2015 edition of WordsWest Literary Series Washington State Poet Laureate Elizabeth Austen and award winning poet Michelle Peñaloza will join us for a night of poetry as well as a talk back on performance and collaboration. This month WordsWest is very grateful for a grant from Poets & Writers that allows WorsWest to pay the poets for their time and talent.

She’s also the author of two chapbooks, The Girl Who Goes Alone (Floating Bridge Press, 2010) and Where Currents Meet (Toadlily Press, 2010). Elizabeth earned an MFA in Poetry at Antioch University Los Angeles. She produces poetry programming for NPR-affiliate KUOW 94.9 and makes her living at Seattle Children’s Hospital, where she also offers poetry and journaling workshops for the staff.

      Michelle Peñaloza grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. Her poetry can be found or is forthcoming from The Asian American Literary Review, The New England Review, and Pleiades.

      By David Henry Hwang

      March 5 – March 29, 2015
      Seattle Premiere

      This laugh-out-loud comedy by the much celebrated Tony-Award winning playwright David Henry Hwang (M. Butterfly), merrily spews forth mutilated and mangled idioms, slang and pronunciations, against the backdrop of stranger-in-a-strange-land tensions. Our protagonist, a naïve American business man, finds himself in China trying to sell a Cultural Minister signs with proper English translations, all the while making his own blunders not only in language, but in cultural etiquette, sex, and in searching for the best guanxi!

      Children’s Movie Hint: In this 1970 26 minute short, Horton the Elephant struggles to protect a microscopic community from his neighbors who refuse to believe it exists.

      Movie hint: In this 2011 G (96 minutes) feature, when Blu, a domesticated macaw from small-town Minnesota, meets the fiercely independent Jewel, he takes off on an adventure to Rio de Janeiro with this bird of his dreams.
