‘Swimming While Drowning’ at ArtsWest
Oct 6 @ 7:30 pm

Marking the beginning of their 2022-23 Season, titled BEGIN IT, West Seattle’s own ArtsWest is excited to be producing the Seattle Premiere of Emilio Rodriguez’s SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING, running September 29th through October 23rd.

SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story of love, poetry, and new beginnings. When teenager Angelo Mendez decides to leave his home out of fear of further disappointing his homophobic father, he encounters a world he was not prepared for at an LGBT homeless shelter in Los Angeles. There he meets a fellow homeless teen who gives him a voice and unexpectedly introduces him to love. Angelo ultimately learns that all relationships, no matter how powerful, have an unfortunate time cap which he must cope with through his writing. SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story that is simultaneously gritty, sweet, funny, heartbreaking and real.

Directed by Roy Arauz, a Costa Rican-American director, choreographer, and producer who has worked in the Seattle area at Book-It Repertory, Latino Theatre Projects, and previously at ArtsWest, among others. After working on SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING’s World Premiere at Milagro in Portland, Arauz is thrilled to bring the play to Seattle audiences. “It’s a beautiful, beautiful script. I saw almost every performance of it and sat in the audience mesmerized every time. Nowadays, we have quite a few queer coming of age stories, but they are often about kids that are sort of affluent and of privilege. In this case, we’re seeing kids who aren’t, and who are not always seen. It’s a coming of age story for all of us about feeling like you’re not going to make it and finding a way to come out of that and keep on going.”

“We’re so honored to have Roy back at ArtsWest for the first time since his incredible work on 2015’s My Mañana Comes,” says Artistic Director Mathew Wright. “He comes with such a strong sense of the beauty, humor, strength, and resilience in Emilio’s play. The play is beautifully cast with Brodrick and Gabriel as Mila and Angelo, and the design team has created a fiercely poetic world for the story to live in. I can’t think of a more exciting way to open the 2022-23 season.”

South Delridge Farmers’ Market @ Hope Academy
Oct 8 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

On May 14, 2022, the Delridge Farmers Market reopens in the Delridge neighborhood of Southwest Seattle. The Market launched last summer, and seeks to put fresh, local food produced by Black, Indigenous and People of Color-owned businesses directly into the hands of the neighborhood’s residents.

With a mission to serve the African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community in King County, nonprofit African Community Housing & Development, led by Executive Director Hamdi Abdulle, has heard from the community for years about the need for food access programs in Delridge. The Delridge Farmers Market is designed to provide a wide array of culturally appropriate foods for the immigrant and refugee community in the area. Featuring robust food access programs, the primary goal of the market is to bring local, nutritious food to everyone, especially families for whom fresh produce is a financial struggle. The market also aims to holistically support Black and Brown entrepreneurs who run farms and food-based businesses.

The majority of vendors at the Delridge Farmers Market are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, and many are immigrants and refugees themselves. With the goal of supporting the development of small businesses in mind, vendors are not charged a stall fee to participate and are provided with resources, equipment, and technical support as they build their capacity to sell at farmers markets. In addition, ACHD seeks to reduce the inherent economic risk of selling at a farmers market while eliminating food waste by purchasing any leftover produce at the end of the market day. That food is then delivered to members of the African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community who are unable to attend the market due to mobility or transportation barriers. “We’ve created a market model that is a win-win-win for customers, vendors, and the community,” says ACHD Associate Director Bilan Aden.

Throughout 2022, a variety of vendors will be returning to the market, including: Afella Jollof Catering (Senegambian cuisine), Chef Jalissa Culinary Co (Southern-inspired baked goods), CityFruit (fruit from Seattle’s urban orchards), Heu’s Blooms & Greens (vibrant locally grown bouquets), Ma & Pops (Caribbean-inspired popsicles), Regeneration Farm (sustainably grown produce from Woodinville), Seola Bee Company (hyper-local honey from West Seattle hives), Small Axe Farm (produce grown by the Black Farmers Collective), Umoja Ni Nguvu (produce grown by Burundian immigrants), and Wakulima (culturally relevant African produce). The market is also seeing incredible growth, adding 10+ additional vendors this year including: Ardour Sisterz Candle Co. (100% coconut soy wax crafted candles and melts as well as traditional African beads and clothing), Haki Farmers Collective (produce and spices grown using traditional methods), Lillie’s Passion (lovingly-crafted sauces, pickles, and jams), Theary’s Flowers & Produce (sustainably grown Cambodian produce), and more!

The Market also hosts on-site connection to resources, offered by ACHD staff in both English and Somali, and provides other community organizations the opportunity to introduce their community services to both vendors and patrons. Organizations like Muslimahs Against Abuse Center and the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association have already signed up for tabling this year.

Birds of Roxhill Park – Bird Sit
Saturday, October 8th 2:00-3:30 pm
Roxhill Park 9234 29th Ave SW
Free, All ages welcome, Family friendly

Join Seattle Audubon Master Birders Wendy Walker and Clair Ervin in discovering your local birds, how to identify them, when and where to find them. The fall migration is a great time to view the many birds of our area as they head south for the winter. Learn more about them by attending these events

What’s the difference between a “sit” event and our Neighborhood Bird Outings? Instead of hiking to see the birds, you sit still and let the birds come to you. Participants are encouraged to drop by at any time and stay for as long as they like. This event is located in a grassy area, and anyone is welcome to bring a folding chair and get comfy. Snacks (for people, not birds) are optional, but a nice touch.

Wear comfortable, weather appropriate clothing and shoes. Events will be held rain or shine but in dangerous weather conditions
No registration needed, please leave pets at home.

Fauntleroy Community Association’s Great Pumpkin Search
Oct 8 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Fall is right around the corner. Can you smell it in the air or see it in the trees? Well, now you can look forward to “The Great Pumpkin Search” presented by the Fauntleroy Community Association. This fun event for the whole family will be on Saturday, October 8, 2022 from 2 to 5 pm. The Association will have a booth set up in the square across from Endolyne Joe’s. The pumpkins will be hidden in the streets that spoke out from that square. There will be little pumpkins easy to find for the wee ones and larger pumpkins harder to find for the grown-ups. As a bonus there will be a few prize pumpkins to find. All of this is on a first come, first serve basis. We also encourage you to take a picture if you find pumpkins and post them on social media and tag it #FCAPumpkinSearch. Just like the Spring Egg Hunt we would love volunteers to hide the pumpkins, but the area will be more concentrated around the square. If interested, please call or email Candace Blue, 206-401-8406, leeblue2@hotmail.com

‘Swimming While Drowning’ at ArtsWest
Oct 8 @ 7:30 pm

Marking the beginning of their 2022-23 Season, titled BEGIN IT, West Seattle’s own ArtsWest is excited to be producing the Seattle Premiere of Emilio Rodriguez’s SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING, running September 29th through October 23rd.

SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story of love, poetry, and new beginnings. When teenager Angelo Mendez decides to leave his home out of fear of further disappointing his homophobic father, he encounters a world he was not prepared for at an LGBT homeless shelter in Los Angeles. There he meets a fellow homeless teen who gives him a voice and unexpectedly introduces him to love. Angelo ultimately learns that all relationships, no matter how powerful, have an unfortunate time cap which he must cope with through his writing. SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story that is simultaneously gritty, sweet, funny, heartbreaking and real.

Directed by Roy Arauz, a Costa Rican-American director, choreographer, and producer who has worked in the Seattle area at Book-It Repertory, Latino Theatre Projects, and previously at ArtsWest, among others. After working on SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING’s World Premiere at Milagro in Portland, Arauz is thrilled to bring the play to Seattle audiences. “It’s a beautiful, beautiful script. I saw almost every performance of it and sat in the audience mesmerized every time. Nowadays, we have quite a few queer coming of age stories, but they are often about kids that are sort of affluent and of privilege. In this case, we’re seeing kids who aren’t, and who are not always seen. It’s a coming of age story for all of us about feeling like you’re not going to make it and finding a way to come out of that and keep on going.”

“We’re so honored to have Roy back at ArtsWest for the first time since his incredible work on 2015’s My Mañana Comes,” says Artistic Director Mathew Wright. “He comes with such a strong sense of the beauty, humor, strength, and resilience in Emilio’s play. The play is beautifully cast with Brodrick and Gabriel as Mila and Angelo, and the design team has created a fiercely poetic world for the story to live in. I can’t think of a more exciting way to open the 2022-23 season.”

Fern Naomi Renville at Words, Writers, Southwest Stories @ Online
Oct 13 @ 6:00 pm

“Words, Writers & Southwest Stories”, a speaker series of the Southwest Seattle Historical Society, is pleased to announce that it is hosting Fern Naomi Renville for a live Zoom presentation on Thursday, October 13th at 6 PM. Ms. Renville will deliver a presentation entitled “American Democracy’s Indigenous Roots and Future”

REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED

History books teach us that the Founding Fathers birthed American democracy, but do not reveal the Indigenous sources of inspiration that guided their vision. The Haudenosaunee Confederacy’s Great Law of Peace – united six Nations in an alliance that predates the American Constitution by centuries – served as a powerful example to men such as Benjamin Franklin, who benefited from the political guidance of Haudenosaunee leaders. Franklin directly cited the Law’s influence on the Constitution.
But even Franklin did not comprehend the political and spiritual power held by the clan mothers of these matriarchal societies, who were instrumental to building and maintain a peaceful union.

Fern Renville is a Siseton Wahpeton Dakota, Omaha and Seneca-Cayuga storyteller, theater director, and playwright. She is the great-granddaughter of Melinda Cayuga, a Seneca matriarch who exemplified the loving strength of the clan mothers.

She will share stores both mythic and personal that reframe and highlight the history, present, and future of Indigenous female power and leadership in America. Such stories include the Seneca story of The Peacemaker and the Dakota story of White Buffalo Calf Woman.

‘Swimming While Drowning’ at ArtsWest
Oct 13 @ 7:30 pm

Marking the beginning of their 2022-23 Season, titled BEGIN IT, West Seattle’s own ArtsWest is excited to be producing the Seattle Premiere of Emilio Rodriguez’s SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING, running September 29th through October 23rd.

SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story of love, poetry, and new beginnings. When teenager Angelo Mendez decides to leave his home out of fear of further disappointing his homophobic father, he encounters a world he was not prepared for at an LGBT homeless shelter in Los Angeles. There he meets a fellow homeless teen who gives him a voice and unexpectedly introduces him to love. Angelo ultimately learns that all relationships, no matter how powerful, have an unfortunate time cap which he must cope with through his writing. SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story that is simultaneously gritty, sweet, funny, heartbreaking and real.

Directed by Roy Arauz, a Costa Rican-American director, choreographer, and producer who has worked in the Seattle area at Book-It Repertory, Latino Theatre Projects, and previously at ArtsWest, among others. After working on SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING’s World Premiere at Milagro in Portland, Arauz is thrilled to bring the play to Seattle audiences. “It’s a beautiful, beautiful script. I saw almost every performance of it and sat in the audience mesmerized every time. Nowadays, we have quite a few queer coming of age stories, but they are often about kids that are sort of affluent and of privilege. In this case, we’re seeing kids who aren’t, and who are not always seen. It’s a coming of age story for all of us about feeling like you’re not going to make it and finding a way to come out of that and keep on going.”

“We’re so honored to have Roy back at ArtsWest for the first time since his incredible work on 2015’s My Mañana Comes,” says Artistic Director Mathew Wright. “He comes with such a strong sense of the beauty, humor, strength, and resilience in Emilio’s play. The play is beautifully cast with Brodrick and Gabriel as Mila and Angelo, and the design team has created a fiercely poetic world for the story to live in. I can’t think of a more exciting way to open the 2022-23 season.”

I can’t think of a more exciting way to open the 2022-23 season.”

‘Swimming While Drowning’ at ArtsWest
Oct 20 @ 7:30 pm

Marking the beginning of their 2022-23 Season, titled BEGIN IT, West Seattle’s own ArtsWest is excited to be producing the Seattle Premiere of Emilio Rodriguez’s SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING, running September 29th through October 23rd.

SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story of love, poetry, and new beginnings. When teenager Angelo Mendez decides to leave his home out of fear of further disappointing his homophobic father, he encounters a world he was not prepared for at an LGBT homeless shelter in Los Angeles. There he meets a fellow homeless teen who gives him a voice and unexpectedly introduces him to love. Angelo ultimately learns that all relationships, no matter how powerful, have an unfortunate time cap which he must cope with through his writing. SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING is a story that is simultaneously gritty, sweet, funny, heartbreaking and real.

Directed by Roy Arauz, a Costa Rican-American director, choreographer, and producer who has worked in the Seattle area at Book-It Repertory, Latino Theatre Projects, and previously at ArtsWest, among others. After working on SWIMMING WHILE DROWNING’s World Premiere at Milagro in Portland, Arauz is thrilled to bring the play to Seattle audiences. “It’s a beautiful, beautiful script. I saw almost every performance of it and sat in the audience mesmerized every time. Nowadays, we have quite a few queer coming of age stories, but they are often about kids that are sort of affluent and of privilege. In this case, we’re seeing kids who aren’t, and who are not always seen. It’s a coming of age story for all of us about feeling like you’re not going to make it and finding a way to come out of that and keep on going.”

“We’re so honored to have Roy back at ArtsWest for the first time since his incredible work on 2015’s My Mañana Comes,” says Artistic Director Mathew Wright. “He comes with such a strong sense of the beauty, humor, strength, and resilience in Emilio’s play.

South Delridge Farmers’ Market @ Hope Academy
Oct 22 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

On May 14, 2022, the Delridge Farmers Market reopens in the Delridge neighborhood of Southwest Seattle. The Market launched last summer, and seeks to put fresh, local food produced by Black, Indigenous and People of Color-owned businesses directly into the hands of the neighborhood’s residents.

With a mission to serve the African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community in King County, nonprofit African Community Housing & Development, led by Executive Director Hamdi Abdulle, has heard from the community for years about the need for food access programs in Delridge. The Delridge Farmers Market is designed to provide a wide array of culturally appropriate foods for the immigrant and refugee community in the area. Featuring robust food access programs, the primary goal of the market is to bring local, nutritious food to everyone, especially families for whom fresh produce is a financial struggle. The market also aims to holistically support Black and Brown entrepreneurs who run farms and food-based businesses.

The majority of vendors at the Delridge Farmers Market are Black, Indigenous, or People of Color, and many are immigrants and refugees themselves. With the goal of supporting the development of small businesses in mind, vendors are not charged a stall fee to participate and are provided with resources, equipment, and technical support as they build their capacity to sell at farmers markets. In addition, ACHD seeks to reduce the inherent economic risk of selling at a farmers market while eliminating food waste by purchasing any leftover produce at the end of the market day. That food is then delivered to members of the African Diaspora immigrant and refugee community who are unable to attend the market due to mobility or transportation barriers. “We’ve created a market model that is a win-win-win for customers, vendors, and the community,” says ACHD Associate Director Bilan Aden.

Throughout 2022, a variety of vendors will be returning to the market, including: Afella Jollof Catering (Senegambian cuisine), Chef Jalissa Culinary Co (Southern-inspired baked goods), CityFruit (fruit from Seattle’s urban orchards), Heu’s Blooms & Greens (vibrant locally grown bouquets), Ma & Pops (Caribbean-inspired popsicles), Regeneration Farm (sustainably grown produce from Woodinville), Seola Bee Company (hyper-local honey from West Seattle hives), Small Axe Farm (produce grown by the Black Farmers Collective), Umoja Ni Nguvu (produce grown by Burundian immigrants), and Wakulima (culturally relevant African produce). The market is also seeing incredible growth, adding 10+ additional vendors this year including: Ardour Sisterz Candle Co. (100% coconut soy wax crafted candles and melts as well as traditional African beads and clothing), Haki Farmers Collective (produce and spices grown using traditional methods), Lillie’s Passion (lovingly-crafted sauces, pickles, and jams), Theary’s Flowers & Produce (sustainably grown Cambodian produce), and more!

The Market also hosts on-site connection to resources, offered by ACHD staff in both English and Somali, and provides other community organizations the opportunity to introduce their community services to both vendors and patrons. Organizations like Muslimahs Against Abuse Center and the Delridge Neighborhoods Development Association have already signed up for tabling this year.

Look for the market on the second and fourth Saturday of each month from May – October 2022, 10 am – 2 pm in the courtyard of Hope Academy (9421 18th Ave SW). Everyone is welcome to attend, and robust food access programs are available (including SNAP/EBT, WIC/Senior FMNP checks, SNAP Market Match, and Fresh Bucks). Free bags of produce will also be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Delridge Farmers Market is made possible by King Conservation District, Albertsons Foundation, and PCC Community Markets.
