Neighbor Day Game Swap and Resources Event @ High Point Library
Feb 10 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The West Seattle Timebank, High Point Library, and High Point Neighborhood House invite you to join us in celebrating…

Neighbor Day

Saturday, February 10th, 2018

1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

at the High Point Library

3411 SW Raymond

Meet your neighbor, learn about community resources, and participate in a fun activity!

Refreshments too!

High Point Library staff will be on hand to provide more information on resources available to you at no cost. Laptops will be available for job search information and resume assistance. High Point Neighborhood House will also have program staff available to provide information on STUDIO, a STEM program that partners with the University of Washington.

The West Seattle Timebank hopes you will clean out your games, puzzles, or activities and head to Neighbor Day. Swap out the old for a new-to-you activity to get you through the winter months. While you’re here, learn about how you can make lasting connections within your community with the West Seattle Timebank.

How to participate:

Bring a game, puzzle or activity kit you no longer want. Board games, card games, travel games, puzzles, arts and craft kits, word puzzle books, and other kid-approved, family-friendly, or adult activities are welcome. Gently loved condition or better is preferred with all pieces included. It’s no fun to play a game or do an activity without all the pieces!

How does the swap work?

Drop in on Neighbor Day between 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. Swap for as many games as you bring: Bring 1 activity, take one home, bring 2 activities, take 2 home … Anything not claimed in the exchange will first be offered to the High Point Library for future game events.

This Pow Wow began when we saw a need in the community to help support the Native youth. Many children in our area are Native foster children or “urban” Native children. Many of them not knowing their culture or feeling the need to connect further with it. This Pow Wow allows them to dance, sing and further connect with the Native traditions. It also brings our community together to share in this celebration!

Playshop @ Fauntleroy Schoolhouse
Apr 22 @ 12:30 pm – 4:30 pm

April 22nd

12:30-4:00 pm

Fauntleroy Schoolhouse
9131 California Ave. SW

In this half-day playshop, we will dive into activities that bring our awareness to what we create from fear. Then we will shift our focus from fear to creating fun thus opening ourselves up to reinventing our lives. The activities are a mix of improv games and scenes, and activities that engage our body’s intelligence for full expression. No experience necessary.

Do you want to:

PLAY through your issues instead of working hard on them?

LEARN to use improv as a way to practice creating what you really want?

ACT out your dreams and conjure fun?!

YES, AND your experience, and discover how loving yourself can be a playful, embodied practice in creative expression?

If yes, then join us in improv games and mind/body centering activities as we play and uncover old unconscious patterns and stories. Then we’ll apply the simple “Yes, And” rule of improv: We’ll say YES to them, and dive in adding humour and fun. Then we’ll add the AND to create a new story of our choosing.

I use presence and play to facilitate the discovery of what you really want. Then we use improv to practice co-creating your dreams so that you can experience the feeling of receiving what you really want.

Come play with us and begin co-creating your new story! RSVP required. $37 per person if you pay online through Meet Up: www.meetup.com/PLAY-IT-OUT/. $35 if you pay cash at the door. Please RSVP to me via e-mail if you plan to pay cash at the door: playitoutimprov@outlook.com.

On Being Gendered: A Workshop for Every Body
Thursdays in June (14, 21, 28)
6:30- 8:00pm at Admiral Church

— To Register, email officemgr@admiralchurch.org-

This workshop series is a basic primer on current theory about gender (distinct from sex assignment and
sexual orientation) and how it relates to everyone, whether trans*, gender fluid, cis-gender, non-binary, etc. 

We will focus on our own experiences of identifying with our gender, of having our gender expression
policed by others (and ourselves), and the church’s role in supporting human freedom around gender
identity and expression. By the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of
what it means to be an ally and co-conspirator with trans* and gender non-conforming folx, and the
gifts that progressive Christian theology can bring to this work.

Nurturing the Environment and Food Access workshop @ Camp Long

DNDA’s Let’s Talk Race Series 2018‎: Nurturing the Environment and Food Access Workshop. Coming up on June 16th, 1–6 pm. Register in advance at tinyurl.com/RaceSeries5

What would it look like to have equitable access to food that nourishes our bodies and nourishes the land? Join us at Camp Long to talk about race in the context of Nurturing the Environment and Food Access. This outdoor workshop will create space for community members to engage in courageous conversations that rely on our vulnerability rather than on instant resolutions. This event will explore how our food systems are built upon the racial injustices of slavery, and how environmental protection is inseparable from indigenous sovereignty. By exposing histories of white supremacy and colonialism in the United States, we can reveal their impacts today. Through timelines, open dialogue, and circle practice, participants will share stories of food traditions and connections to land that build bridges across difference and promote healing.

With facilitators Nat Mengist and Lucia Santos

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

Seattle Writes (for teens): Piloting the Category Five Hurricane: Getting Through Tough Times @ High Point Library
Oct 21 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

At the High Point Library:

Teens are invited to join poet Ann Teplick in a poetry-writing workshop that explores the themes of self-care and resilience.

In this poetry-writing workshop for teens, we will explore the themes of self-care and resilience. In a world where, in addition to our own personal challenges, we witness the struggles of those whom we love, and of those whom we haven’t had the good fortune to meet; in a world where overwhelm is often the wave that spins us to our outer limits—what brings us to solid ground?

In two workshops at the High Point and Delridge Branches, teens will read and be inspired to respond to the work of poets such as Li-Young Lee, Nikki Giovanni, Naomi Shihab Nye, Suheir Hammad, Rumi, Gretel Ehrlich, Ntozake Shange, David Wagoner, Francisco X. Alarcon, and more. The material for each workshop will be different. Please attend one or both! All participants are invited to read and celebrate their work on Sunday November 4th from 1:30-3:30 p.m. at the Highpoint Branch of the Seattle Public Library. Do join us!

Ann Teplick is a Seattle poet, playwright, prose writer, and teaching artist. She writes with youth at Seattle Children’s Hospital, through Writers in the Schools; Child Study Treatment Center, through Pongo Teen Writing; and at Coyote Central. She’s received support from Artist Trust, Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, 4Culture, and The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Her writing has appeared in Raven Chronicles, Crab Creek Review, The Louisville Review, Drash, Spartan, Hunger Mountain, Jack Straw Writers’ Anthology, 4Culture’s Poetry on the Busses, and more. Her plays have been showcased in Washington, Oregon, and Nova Scotia. She is currently working on a young-adult novel in poems where resilience and self-care save the day in the face of tragedy.

Library events and programs are free and everyone is welcome. This workshop is intended for teens. Registration is not required for this writing class, but seating is limited. Seating will be on a first come, first seated basis. Doors to the meeting room will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the class.

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women

Working with your own hands invites you to be still, within the present moment – for complete concentration to the work at hand. Holding your creation brings a connection to the Earth and the many traditional cultures who honored the plants, fibers, and animals of the land they lived with. Each class will cover the basics of traditional crafting to create a small ‘keepsake’ item of function and beauty. Participants will also take home the tools used in class for continued crafting beyond our time together. COST: $300, plus $125 materials fee for the entire series.

Dec 15 – CARVING, Jan 19 – BASKETRY, Feb 16 – LEATHER CRAFT, Mar 16 – WILDCRAFT (plant medicine)

Find those perfect gifts for your friends, family or loved one right here at the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center. We are always happy to see you!

Friday Dec. 14th, Saturday Dec. 15th and Sunday Dec. 16th, 10 am–5 pm.

Opened in 2009, the Longhouse is a traditional cedar post and beam structure designed in the Puget Salish Longhouse style. It houses a Native Art Gallery, Duwamish History Museum, Gift Shop, Duwamish Tribal Offices, and traditional Longhouse. As in ancient times, Longhouse is the site where tribal business is conducted and cultural & educational events are held. It is the first Duwamish Longhouse built since the last one was burned down in West Seattle in 1894 to push the Duwamish off their land. In 1851, there were over 90 Duwamish Longhouses.

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women @ TBA
Jan 19 all-day

Nature Crafting Skills Workshops for Women

Working with your own hands invites you to be still, within the present moment – for complete concentration to the work at hand. Holding your creation brings a connection to the Earth and the many traditional cultures who honored the plants, fibers, and animals of the land they lived with. Each class will cover the basics of traditional crafting to create a small ‘keepsake’ item of function and beauty. Participants will also take home the tools used in class for continued crafting beyond our time together. COST: $300, plus $125 materials fee for the entire series.

Dec 15 – CARVING, Jan 19 – BASKETRY, Feb 16 – LEATHER CRAFT, Mar 16 – WILDCRAFT (plant medicine)

Saturnalia @ West Seattle "Alki" Masonic Center
Jan 19 @ 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Join Seattle’s Phantasmagorical Chef [Chef Killian] for a January feast that will make Saturn blush!

Traditionally held in December, we’ve moved the Saturnalia Feast to January so you can enjoy the newer winter holidays with family and recover from your New Year revelry with friends, before diving into the extravaganza of our January Saturnalia.

In honor of the Agricultural Deity, everything you eat this night will be best-of-kind!
Sourced from ethical butchers, local gardens, and small local farms and wineries, every kind of diet and restriction is accommodated. From celiac to halal, Chef Killian is pleased to provide you a meal to remember. “The poet Catullus called Saturnalia ‘the best of days’ I promise to make this dinner one of your best!” Note: the ancient Romans had limited flatware: you will have a spoon and a knife; ample use of your fingers is encouraged.
