      Search for tidepool animals during some of the best low tides of the year. Learn a bit of beach ecology and which animal is the most colorful – a sea star, a sea anemone, or a sea slug. Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

      August 1: 10:45 am–1:45 pm
      August 2: 11:45 am–2:15 pm

      Not only will you witness the Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, but you’ll also see advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beach goers – Beach Naturalists.

      Beach Naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn and enjoy area beaches this summer. Be sure to visit a local beach this summer and meet the Beach Naturalists. They know their beaches. They can help you enjoy the beach without harming it. They can tell you what sea stars eat, why barnacles stand on their heads and how moon snails lay their eggs. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our Beach Naturalists transfers directly to the public-it’s a wonderful infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, Community Outreach at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      Block parties to fight crime and promote neighborhood solidarity! Watch for details as it gets closer. SPD’s website has past info here. And let us know the location of YOUR block party, if you wouldn’t mind WSB stopping by for a photo (as we’ve done in years past).

      “Night Out” Designed to heighten crime prevention awareness,
      increase neighborhood support in anti-crime efforts, and unite our communities. It is a great chance to learn about crime prevention, while also celebrating your community and spending time with your neighbors. The event is a unique opportunity to bring your neighbors together, welcome new neighbors, talk about crime prevention, and Block Watch efforts, and mainly just have a great time with food, music, games – whatever you want. The creativity we’ve seen of what neighborhoods come up with is amazing. Some gatherings are just a few households; others expand into large block parties.

      ***

      High Point Night Out takes place at 6 pm – with six picnics in six parks, and lots of activities for the kids!

      Meet your neighbors!

    11. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      Duwamish Revealed, a historic summer-long series of outdoor art installations, performances, community activities is proud to present REVERBERANDO, a bilingual performance inspired by Latin American cultural connections to rivers.

      REVERBERANDO – Reflection of your waters
      (Milvia Pacheco, David Blanco, & Mirta Wymerszberg)

      Friday, August 7th, 7:00 pm
      Jack Block Park, 2130 Harbor Ave. SW

      The performance will happen in two locations at Jack Block Park – along the beach beside the public pier, and on the pier itself.

      Pacheco and Blanco (from Venezuela), and Wymerzberg (from Argentina) bring together many of the performing arts – Reverberando incorporates theatre, dance, live music, and singing. The performance draws on Latin American traditional music, as well as original text and music composed by the performers. Like all of the Duwamish Revealed artists, they have created this work especially for the exhibition. This is their first time collaborating and performing together as a trio.

      Along with the performance, Duwamish Revealed will be holding an informal reception for artists George Lee, Jordan Monez, Robb Kunz and Jack Daws, all of whom have artwork up at Jack Block Park as part of the exhibition.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      At the West Seattle (Admiral) Library Saturday, August 8, 2015, 1–5 pm:

      3D printing is becoming an essential tool in design and digital fabrication. Rhino 5 is one of the most powerful platforms for just about anything from industrial modeling and architecture to custom design, and prototype development and more.

You will learn computer-aided design (CAD) concepts, including NURBS curves, point clouds and polygon meshes. We’ll help you navigate the pitfalls of 3D design. You will be armed with approaches to 3D modeling to help you make your own small creation and turn your idea into reality. You will finish designing your 3D model and upload it to Intentional3D for printing.

      Registration is required. You are registering for a two-part class that occurs August 8 and 9.

      Upon completion of both parts, the library will provide a coupon that covers up to $25 for the cost of printing your 3D model. 3D print jobs will be sent to Intentional3D for printing and will be mailed to participants.

      Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome.

      Class size is limited to 10 participants.

      Rogers, who has operated his Logs & Timbers business from Rhododendron, Oregon, since 1983, has successfully helped scores of private organizations and public agencies to achieve their preservation goals.

      He inspired countless thousands with his hands-on helming of the Log House Museum’s back (south) wall in 1996-1997. His craftsmanship on behalf of the museum is highlighted in a 6-minute video that is viewable at http://www.loghousemuseum.info/events/welcome-back-david-rogers/.

    9. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      Jennifer Burbridge has set a schedule of focus-group-style meetings at the precinct in which she is extending an open invitation for community members to show up and talk about crime and police issues, particularly (but not exclusively) as they relate to the “micro-community policing plans” announced earlier this year.

      The precinct is at Delridge/Webster; the community meeting room is right off the parking lot, which in turn is off Webster.

      National Treasure
      Since his childhood, Benjamin Franklin Gates has known that he is a decendant of a long line of people whose job it has been to guard a treasure hidden by the Founding Fathers. They hid clues to its whereabouts in the country’s currency and on the back of the Declaration of Independence. Now, Ben has learned of a plot to steal the Declaration, and has only one option: he had to steal it himself. Even if he pulls off this monumental task, keeping the treasure safe is still going to be incredibly hard, especially since the FBI now knows of his plans.

      Friday August 14th at 3:00 pm at Kenyon Hall:

      Course-Tuned Guitar Workshop with Sulphuric Symphony’s Don McGreevy

      Course tuning is one of many experiments that can be conducted using guitars, pianos, or any other stringed instrument, to facilitate improvisation. Course tuning is when a stringed instrument is tuned to a single note in one or more octaves. When used in an ensemble with each payer fretting a different note, polyphony (independent tones in harmony) is achieved. This workshop will give students the opportunity to first watch and listen to several small performances using a small ensemble of players from the Sulphuric Symphony, then to participate in a question-and-answer period, followed by hands-on experimentation with the specially tuned guitars.

      For the workshop August 14 at 3 pm, there is no admission charge.

      To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.

    7. Riverside Walking Tour
      10:00 am – 12:00 pm

      Join the Southwest Seattle Historical Society Saturday August 15th for Riverside Walking Tour.

      Have you ever wanted to learn more about the seemingly abandoned neighborhood beneath the West Seattle Bridge and along West Marginal Way?

      It’s called Riverside, and it will be the focus of a walking tour at 10 am to noon Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015.

      Led by first-generation resident Frank Zuvela, the tour, running about two hours, will start at 10 am Saturday, Aug. 15, 2015, leaving from the corner of West Marginal Way Southwest and Southwest Marginal Place, beneath the high-level West Seattle Bridge.

      Cost of the tour is $5, payable at the beginning of the tour. Please bring comfortable shoes to walk up hills and along streets and trails.

      Zuvela’s family arrived at the mouth of the Duwamish River in 1904, and like the majority of Riverside’s fishing families, his forebears came from Croatia.

      Riverside Plaza features multi-colored commemorative tiles for families and home sites that are arranged to repeat the patterns of the neighborhood. From the plaza, the tour will cover 18th, 17th and 16th Avenues Southwest as well as the low-level Spokane Street swing bridge.

    8. Seal Sitters new volunteer training @ Alki UCC

      Seal Sitters Marine Mammal Stranding Network will hold a new volunteer training on Saturday, August 15, 2015, from 10 am–12:30 pm.

      When: Saturday, August 15, 2015
      Time: 10 am–12:30 pm
      Training starts promptly at 10 am (please arrive early: doors open for
      registration and paperwork at 9:30)

      RSVP required (see below)

      Help protect wildlife! Volunteer with Seal Sitters Marine Mammal Stranding Network. On Saturday afternoon, June 13th, we will be holding a special training for those wanting to protect marine mammals along the shoreline of West Seattle and the Duwamish River. Unlike most marine mammal stranding networks, we encourage children to participate in Seal Sitters – supervised at all times, of course, by a parent or guardian. We are so proud of our amazing and dedicated volunteers who are on duty rain or shine – we hope you will join us!

      A multi-media presentation will illustrate Seal Sitters MMSN’s educational work in the community and the unique challenges of protecting seals and other marine mammals in an urban environment. Included in the training is an overview of NOAA’s Western Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network and biology and behavior of seals and other common pinnipeds.

      FOR MORE DETAILS ABOUT LOCATION AND TO RSVP, visit Seal Sitters’ event page. RSVP is required to assure seating. (Please include full name and name/ages of children)

      Seal Sitters MMSN averages 200 responses each year to reports of marine mammals (large or small species, dead or alive) on the beach. 90% of those responses are to vulnerable harbor seal pups during our busiest time of year – late summer and fall. Pupping season is now underway in South Puget Sound and Seal Sitters has responded to 4 newborn pups since the end of May. We are happy to say that one of those pups, Little Dipper (abandoned and rescued from Lincoln Park) is doing well in rehab at PAWS Wildlife Center. Visit www.blubberblog.org to learn more about Little Dipper and Seal Sitters’ recent activities.

      Please join us on August 15th and help ensure that seal pups and other marine mammals can rest safely on our beaches. Due to time constraints of volunteers during the height of pupping season in West Seattle (usually August – October), this will be our final training for this season until later in the Fall. We hope you can attend!

Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you.

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      Featuring Sarah Rose Davis, Laura Griffith, Cayman Ilika, Jessica Skerritt, and Katherine Strohmaier

      ArtsWest is pleased to announce the launch of After Hours with Mathew Wright, its new summer cabaret series. Hosted by Artistic Director Mathew Wright, these one-night only events feature five of the fiercest leading ladies in Seattle theater, Sarah Rose Davis (7/20), Laura Griffith (8/10), Cayman Ilika (8/3), Jessica Skerritt (7/27), and Katherine Strohmaier (8/17).

      Each will dish on their lives and careers through provocative, freewheeling interviews and sing everything from Broadway standards to pop songs, backed by Mathew
      Wright on piano.

      The series is designed to showcase the best actors working in Seattle today and give audiences a behind-the-curtain look at, in the words of playwright Tom Stoppard, “the elephant falling out of the cupboard.” Think Ellen meets Inside the Actor’s Studio with the flair and verve of cabaret.

      Tickets: General Admission: $25/show | $100/series Tables for Two: $75/show | $300/series. Tickets on sale now at http://www.artswest.org/theatre/buy-tickets/

      You’re invited to join us and help support this non-profit. Enter a raffle for a chance to win a gift basket from their organization. Here’s why you need to help:

      Together Center Mission: “We create access to human services, so people can find help when they need it.” Together Center creates access to critical assistance through a one-stop human service campus and other innovative strategies. One of the first nonprofit multi-tenant centers in the nation, we were designed first and foremost to lower barriers to finding help. Where East King County residents once needed to travel from Bothell to Renton or beyond to find help at individual locations, people now find comprehensive assistance at one location. The Center provides 20 agencies in one location that help over 37,000 people each year. With one stop, people find food, shelter, medical and dental care, counseling, child care and more. One-on-one support and guidance at the Center’s front door ensures that individuals can easily move forward.

      Please join us at Salty’s on Alki Bar-Cafe on Tuesday, August 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Come early for Salty’s extended Happy Hour Menu from 3:00 to 7:30 p.m. or stay for Late Night Happy Hour 9:00 to 10:00 p.m. (happy hour usually runs 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.) There is no cover charge but donations to Together Center are gratefully accepted.

      “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.”

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden.

Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      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!”

      Live music and a Waterfront View of the City. Enjoy the famous Salty’s food and fare, but there is no food or drink minimum.

      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      Duwamish Revealed, a historic summer long series of outdoor art installations, performances, community activities is proud to present SIGNAL, by performance artist Rachel Green.

      Summer celebration of the Duwamish River continues with a powerful site-specific multimedia performance exploring growth and rebirth.

      SIGNAL (Rachel Green, Joscelyn Tarbox, Chantael Duke, Daniel Salo, Anna Telcs)

      Terminal 107 Park
      August 21 at 7:00 pm and
      August 22 at 3:00 and 7:00 pm

      RSVP: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2074171 (Free)

      Signal is a performance and ceremony that beckons us to return home to purity from a place of pollution and strife, only to discover that home is not the same as when you left it. Using the Duwamish River as inspiration, Signal explores ideas of growth, rebirth and emergence using installation, video, and dance. An empty warehouse will be transformed into a ritual space where power and wholeness are revealed through the constraint, unfolding and eventual reclaiming of the body to higher natural forces. The body, as the river, chooses growth.

      Video and choreography: Rachel Green
      Cinematographer: Joscelyn Tarbox
      Performers: Chantael Duke and Rachel Green
      Costumes: Anna Telcs

      ~ Sturdy shoes that can handle some mud (closed toed shoes are required: work boots, hiking boots, or running shoes are all fine)
      ~ Sack lunch and snacks
      ~ Full water bottle

    10. Arts in Nature Festival @ Camp Long
      11:00 am – 9:15 pm

      The 2015 Arts in Nature Festival is set for August 22-23 at Camp Long. Nature Consortium is bringing back this coveted community event as a fundraiser for the organization. This small, but mighty nonprofit’s mission is to “connect people, arts and nature”. . . and there’s no better way to do that than with a festive, artistic celebration in the woods! Tickets for this year’s event will go on sale in spring 2015, and there will be opportunities to apply for free tickets between then and August.

      An Unparalled Experience
      The Arts in Nature Festival exists at the nexus of art, nature, and community. As Nature Consortium’s founding project, this festival offers an eclectic experience of art and performance in the woods of Seattle’s only camp ground. Rather than rows of vendors and merchants, you’ll find four intimate performance stages, a ‘museum of sound’ in 8 rustic cabins, interactive hands-on art and nature activities, and winding hiking trails through the great outdoors.

      (See the full schedule here.)

      After playing a high-energy show at The Neptune on May 6, acclaimed eco-rockers Cloud Cult will return to Seattle for two intimate, acoustic shows at the Arts in Nature Festival. Each set will take place in front of the fireplace in Camp Long’s rustic lodge.

      Cloud Cult, who traveled their first American tour in a van covered in solar panels, is well known for their earthy, environmental vibe. Lead singer Craig and Connie Minowa founded Earthology, an environmental
      nonprofit that includes an advocacy wing called Earthology Institute and the green-powered Earthology Records which houses all of the band’s productions.

      In addition to Cloud Cult, there will be a wide array of modern and traditional music at the Arts in Nature Festival ranging from experimental and improvised to world, classical, jazz, bluegrass and folk. Performances will be ambient and acoustic in four different venues throughout the park: in the Lodge, in a forested grove by the Pond, on the climbing Glacier, and in the Meadow. 

      Camp Long’s rustic cabins will house the Museum of Sound where artists will take up residency for the weekend creating multidisciplinary installations that blend sound, auditory arts, music and visual arts. The cabins meander through the forested outer perimeter of the park, and festival goers will have the opportunity to enter and explore each cabin. Most of the cabins will have a hands-on component allowing attendees to interact with the artists’ work.

      Dance performances and literary readings will present in various locations throughout the park. Festival goers will also be able to participate in art activities, a ropes challenge course, yarn bombing, hikes through the forest, and naturalist activities.

      One unique thing that Arts in Nature attendees will notice is that, aside from delicious local food, there will be no large booths of vendors trying to sell them anything. The Festival experience is one centered on interaction rather than transaction.

      Admission to the Arts in Nature Festival is free with suggested donation; $10 for individuals and $25 for families. The Festival is an annual event hosted by Nature Consortium, a West Seattle-based nonprofit that connects people, arts, and nature.

      The full lineup of the festival is to be announced. For more information, visit fest.naturec.org.

    15. Kitty Harbor weekend adoption event
      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      3:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      Duwamish Revealed, a historic summer long series of outdoor art installations, performances, community activities is proud to
      present SIGNAL, by performance artist Rachel Green.

      Summer celebration of the Duwamish River continues with a powerful
      site-specific multimedia performance exploring growth and rebirth.

      SIGNAL (Rachel Green, Joscelyn Tarbox, Chantael Duke, Daniel Salo, Anna Telcs)

      Terminal 107 Park
      August 21 at 7:00 pm and
      August 22 at 3:00 and 7:00 pm

      RSVP: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2074171 (Free)

      Signal is a performance and ceremony that beckons us to return home to purity from a place of pollution and strife, only to discover that home is not the same as when you left it. Using the Duwamish River as inspiration, Signal explores ideas of growth, rebirth and emergence using installation, video, and dance. An empty warehouse will be transformed into a ritual space where power and wholeness are revealed through the constraint, unfolding and eventual reclaiming of the body to higher natural forces. The body, as the river, chooses growth.

      Cinematographer: Joscelyn Tarbox
      Performers: Chantael Duke and Rachel Green

      Tom Dyer’s New Pagan Gods’ History Of Northwest Rock, Vol. 1: 1959-1968 Release Party!

      August 22nd – 7:30 pm
      -RSVP On Facebook!-
      Easy Street Records
      Free & All Ages

      Green Monkey Records head honcho Tom Dyer says: “For my 9th release in the last six years (who’s counting?), I am embracing the NW cannon of my youth — works by mighty giants like The Sonics, The Wailers, Paul Revere & The Raiders, The Ventures, The Fleetwoods, Merrilee Rush, as well as lesser known gems from the 1957-68 period, when Northwest bands could deliver radio hits on the Seattle teen beacon KJR. To execute this difficult task, a relentless and raucous band of Green Monkey stars was assembled – Scott Sutherland and Scott Vanderpool from King County Queens on lead guitar and drums, Joe Ross and Jeff Kelly of the Green Pajamas on bass and the organ. Producer Steve Fisk was brought in to GMR HQ to track the unholy racket.

      The record release show for History of NW Rock will be Saturday, August 22, 7:30 pm at Easy Street Records. This may well be the New Pagan Gods only show and there is no opening band, so be on time! Admission is free. Easy Street will be very happy to sell you the album at the show! And beer if you are 21.”

    24. Eaten Voices @ Camp Long
      8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      The New Alchemists open their fall season with Lavinia Roberts’ award-winning play, Eaten Voices. The brainchild of New York playwright Lavinia Roberts, Los Angeles composer Ahmed Alabaca, and Seattle director Lily Raabe, Eaten Voices won “Best Play in Festival” at New York’s Thespis Theatre Festival in 2012 for its World Premiere.

      Suitable for all ages, Eaten Voices follows the story of Leona, a plucky young woman trapped in night – a place of stories, song, dance, and mystery. As she journeys towards day she meets a variety of mystical characters inspired by myths spanning the globe.

      With an original score played live to accompany the ensemble, a multitude of handmade masks, and inventive storytelling, Eaten Voices is a poignant production for the whole family.

      The West Coast premiere runs August 22—August 30, 2015.

      Experience Eaten Voices at historic Camp Long in West Seattle:

      ~ Aug 22, 8 pm – Fire Circle
      ~ Aug 23, 12:15 pm – The Pond

      TICKETING
      The New Alchemists recommend a $20 individual donation or $50 family donation; however, we believe that ticket price should not stand in the way of accessible art.

      2015 Alki Beach 5k – Save the Date!
      The Best Waterfront Route in Seattle!

      Sunday August 23, 2015 at 9 am

      Celebrate a survivor. Honor someone you’ve lost to breast cancer. Support friends, family and co-workers. Our 5k walk and run raises money to help women get back on track financially, while dealing with the emotional and physical effects of breast cancer.

      Enjoy the sights and sounds of Alki Beach & the West Seattle waterfront on this out-and-back 5k route from the Statue of Liberty at Alki Beach Park & the historic Bathhouse, along the waterfront to Anchor Park and back.

      Your dollars support the NW Hope & Healing Patient Assistance Fund! Proceeds support the Healing Programs of NW Hope & Healing Foundation and help women who are fighting breast and gynecologic cancer in the Puget Sound area. For that reason we encourage all participants to set a $100 minimum fundraising goal. Although fundraising is not required, we hope you will join us in providing basic needs to women who are battling cancer. $25 provides a Healing Basket, $50 can buy groceries, $100 can keep the lights on and the phone connected, $250 may ensure childcare during treatment and recovery, and $500 can help prevent an eviction.

      Register today, register and join breast cancer survivors, friends, family members and coworkers at our annual Alki Beach 5k Walk & Run.

      If you’d rather not walk or run, you can still help by volunteering or donating in support of NW Hope & Healing. You’ll be supporting a great cause and you’re sure to have a good time.

      Everyone is welcomed and encouraged to participate.

      Prizes for 1st & 2nd place finishers!

    5. Arts in Nature Festival @ Camp Long
      11:00 am – 9:15 pm

      The 2015 Arts in Nature Festival is set for August 22-23 at Camp Long. Nature Consortium is bringing back this coveted community event as a fundraiser for the organization. This small, but mighty nonprofit’s mission is to “connect people, arts and nature”. . . and there’s no better way to do that than with a festive, artistic celebration in the woods! Tickets for this year’s event will go on sale in spring 2015, and there will be opportunities to apply for free tickets between then and August.

      An Unparalled Experience
      The Arts in Nature Festival exists at the nexus of art, nature, and community. As Nature Consortium’s founding project, this festival offers an eclectic experience of art and performance in the woods of Seattle’s only camp ground. Rather than rows of vendors and merchants, you’ll find four intimate performance stages, a ‘museum of sound’ in 8 rustic cabins, interactive hands-on art and nature activities, and winding hiking trails through the great outdoors.

      (See the full schedule here.)

      After playing a high-energy show at The Neptune on May 6, acclaimed eco-rockers Cloud Cult will return to Seattle for two intimate, acoustic shows at the Arts in Nature Festival. Each set will take place in front of the fireplace in Camp Long’s rustic lodge.

      Cloud Cult, who traveled their first American tour in a van covered in solar panels, is well known for their earthy, environmental vibe. Lead singer Craig and Connie Minowa founded Earthology, an environmental
      nonprofit that includes an advocacy wing called Earthology Institute and the green-powered Earthology Records which houses all of the band’s productions.

      In addition to Cloud Cult, there will be a wide array of modern and traditional music at the Arts in Nature Festival ranging from experimental and improvised to world, classical, jazz, bluegrass and folk. Performances will be ambient and acoustic in four different venues throughout the park: in the Lodge, in a forested grove by the Pond, on the climbing Glacier, and in the Meadow. 

      Camp Long’s rustic cabins will house the Museum of Sound where artists will take up residency for the weekend creating multidisciplinary installations that blend sound, auditory arts, music and visual arts. The cabins meander through the forested outer perimeter of the park, and festival goers will have the opportunity to enter and explore each cabin. Most of the cabins will have a hands-on component allowing attendees to interact with the artists’ work.

      Dance performances and literary readings will present in various locations throughout the park. Festival goers will also be able to participate in art activities, a ropes challenge course, yarn bombing, hikes through the forest, and naturalist activities.

      One unique thing that Arts in Nature attendees will notice is that, aside from delicious local food, there will be no large booths of vendors trying to sell them anything. The Festival experience is one centered on interaction rather than transaction.

      Admission to the Arts in Nature Festival is free with suggested donation; $10 for individuals and $25 for families. The Festival is an annual event hosted by Nature Consortium, a West Seattle-based nonprofit that connects people, arts, and nature.

      The full lineup of the festival is to be announced. For more information, visit fest.naturec.org.
