Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Date: 
Monday, May 1st, 2017 (All day) to Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 (All day)

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual

Assault Awareness Month.

 

Art has the power to help us think differently about things.

 

Peterborough, Ontario – April 10, 2017 > Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and participating artists welcome Sexual Assault: The Roadshow to Peterborough for May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is a pop up, participatory art gallery in a shipping container. The retrofitted, glass fronted container will travel on a flat-bed truck to 15 cities/areas in Ontario over a three-year period. At each stop, local anti-violence experts will work with local artists and participants to create, curate and exhibit art that "talks back" to sexual assault.

 

Recently, there has been unprecedented dialogue and awareness about the crime and sexual violence in general.   Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will serve as work and exhibition space for multiple art forms that will further that dialogue in creative, community based and transformative ways.

 

For the month of May, Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will be placed in the parking lot of the PACE program at PCVS, 201 McDonnel Street in Peterborough. During this time, local artists Anne Taylor, Micky Renders, Shelley King and Barb Hawthorn will conduct workshops and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in their collective vision of the "Facing Faceless" project. Additionally, there will be an opening and closing exhibitions which will be open to the public. Art created in stops in Toronto, Ohsweken and Hamilton will also be on display. Art workshops and exhibition times are posted at kawarthasexualassaultcentre.com, on Facebook or contact the Centre at 705-748-5901 for more information.

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is an Ontario wide community arts education project by sexual assault activist Jane Doe and artist/activist Lillian Allen. It is funded by the Ontario Arts Council and Vtape.

Grieving for the World - Loss in a changing Climate

Grieving for the World - Loss in a changing Climate

Date: 
Tuesday, May 9th, 2017 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm


The effects of climate change can be overwhelming with extreme weather events such as flooding and drought (both experienced locally in the last several years), markedly warmer winters, and declines in wildlife populations such as monarch butterflies – a decline with clear links to climate change. The natural world is no longer that of our childhood.

People often experience a range of emotions over these changes, including sorrow, anger, and helplessness. Indeed, the feelings are widespread enough that the American Psychological Association has just published a major report on the mental effects of climate change: Mental Health and Our Changing Climate CBC Radio also discussed this issue on  The Current on April 6.

To give people in Peterborough the opportunity to share these concerns and to find reasons for hope, For Our Grandchildren and Leap Peterborough are co-sponsoring a discussion on Tuesday May 9th, 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Trinity Church Hall, 360 Reid Street, entrance off Simcoe St. between Reid and Rubidge.

All are welcome.

Please visit the event on Facebook and invite your friends.

Schindler Lecture in Aquatic Science, The Urban Future of Earth: The More We Change, the More It's All the Same

Schindler Lecture in Aquatic Science, The Urban Future of Earth: The More We Change, the More It's All the Same

Date: 
Tuesday, May 9th, 2017 - 7:30 pm

Trent University's annual Schindler Lecture in Aquatic Science, The Urban Future of Earth: The More We Change, the More It's All the Same, delivered by Dr. Peter Groffman of the Cary Insitute of Ecosystem Studies.

The urban environment is increasing all across North America. An apparent result of urban land use change is the homogenization across cities, where neighbourhoods regardless of geographical location have similar patterns of roads, residential lots, and commercial areas. This homogenization also alters ecological dynamics with implications for hydrological cycles, biodiversity, and nutrient cycling across scales from the yard up to the whole continent. This talk will consider how homogenization due to the "human element" in urban ecology affects nutrient cycles and ecosystem health in these increasingly widespread and highly recognizable environments.

Date: Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Time: 7:30 p.m.

Location: Great Hall, Champlain College, Trent University's West Bank.

A campus map is available here. The Great Hall is number 4.

 

This is a free public lecture, open to everyone. Feel free to share this information with your networks.

New Visions/Old Land

A Special Project organized as part of Peterborough's
Canada 150: Downtown Celebrations

 
CALL FOR PROPOSALS FROM ARTISTS
 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
It is the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation in 2017, but the land and the people are much older.  This project asks artists to reimagine what "Canada" means, to put forth new visions of what the idea of Canada could or should be.  Who are we?  What does it mean to be Canadian?  What is the role of the land and the landscape in shaping this definition?  How can we trace an outline of the future in the fragments of the past?  What is the relationship between the material world that surrounds us and the ideology we use to interpret its meaning?  How can we represent this fixed geographical place and our collective cultural and social space?  What histories have remained hidden, and how can we bring them to light?  And, what should we be highlighting, remembering, moving towards?  Recasting the past, inventing alternative futures.
 
WE ARE COMMISSIONING FOUR (4) NEW MEDIA ART WORKS TO ILLUSTRATE THIS THEME FOR PETERBOROUGH'S CANADA 150 CELEBRATIONS.
 
WHEN:  June 30th, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?  We are looking for four (4) media artists to make new works that bring their unique voice and vision to the discourse on Canada, to show us with their eyes, minds and bodies, new histories that we can carry forward.  They will work with musicians and/or sound artists to create live performance on June 30th to accompany the media work.
 
THE PROJECT CHALLENGE: 
The works must be silent and no more than 5 minutes long.
Applications in any genre are welcome and experimentation with moving image structures and norms is encouraged.  There must be a live music or sound component as part of the June 30th event.  In your application, please include information on how the silent media work will relate to the live sound/music performance.  Artists are encouraged to survey Hunter St. West from the corner of George St. North to Sam's Deli, and suggest possible locations and ways of presenting their work.  Artists will work with the project Curator Kelly Egan to determine final sites and exhibition formats.

Public Energy is honoured to welcome back to Peterborough a living legend of Canadian theatre and music, Tomson Highway. On May 11 he brings Songs in the Key of Cree to the Market Hall stage with the extraordinary Peruvian/Canadian singer Patricia Cano, and saxophonist Marcus Ali.

Songs in the Key of Cree is a compilation of songs written over the past thirty years by Cree-Canadian playwright/songwriter/pianist Tomson Highway. The songs in the show are taken from five of his musicals over the years, in order: “Rose,” “The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito,” “The (Post) Mistress,” “The Sage, the Dancer, and the Fool” and a new work in progress as yet to be named. What makes the songs unique is their Cree lyrics.

An intimate meet & greet with Tomson Highway, who will speak on the topic: 
 The Birth and Development of ‘Native showbiz’. With locally sourced Indigenous food from Grandfather’s Kitchen and a selection of fine wine.

A member of the Order of Canada, Tomson Highway is one of Canada’s greatest playwrights. Peterborough audiences will recall that two of his best works have been staged in Peterborough by the O’Kaadenigan Wiingashk Collective, assisted by Public Energy: The Rez Sisters and The (Post) Mistress, with these extraordinary musician/performers of Songs in the Key of Cree as the cast for the production of the latter, held at the Market Hall in 2012.

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Date: 
Monday, May 1st, 2017 (All day) to Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 (All day)

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual

Assault Awareness Month.

 

Art has the power to help us think differently about things.

 

Peterborough, Ontario – April 10, 2017 > Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and participating artists welcome Sexual Assault: The Roadshow to Peterborough for May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is a pop up, participatory art gallery in a shipping container. The retrofitted, glass fronted container will travel on a flat-bed truck to 15 cities/areas in Ontario over a three-year period. At each stop, local anti-violence experts will work with local artists and participants to create, curate and exhibit art that "talks back" to sexual assault.

 

Recently, there has been unprecedented dialogue and awareness about the crime and sexual violence in general.   Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will serve as work and exhibition space for multiple art forms that will further that dialogue in creative, community based and transformative ways.

 

For the month of May, Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will be placed in the parking lot of the PACE program at PCVS, 201 McDonnel Street in Peterborough. During this time, local artists Anne Taylor, Micky Renders, Shelley King and Barb Hawthorn will conduct workshops and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in their collective vision of the "Facing Faceless" project. Additionally, there will be an opening and closing exhibitions which will be open to the public. Art created in stops in Toronto, Ohsweken and Hamilton will also be on display. Art workshops and exhibition times are posted at kawarthasexualassaultcentre.com, on Facebook or contact the Centre at 705-748-5901 for more information.

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is an Ontario wide community arts education project by sexual assault activist Jane Doe and artist/activist Lillian Allen. It is funded by the Ontario Arts Council and Vtape.

The latest post to your Hospice Peterborough Stories Blog by: David Kennedy, Supportive Care Counsellor, Hospice Peterborough
 
 
It was a very intense moment. The air was literally heavy with grief. She had just finished telling me the story of the sudden unexpected death of the love of her life. As she had poured out their life together, there was a deep sadness that pervaded all other emotions. Even those moments we laughed at a memory were wrapped in a shroud of sadness and disbelief...

Children of the Intifada: Gaza through poetry and drawings

Children of the Intifada: Gaza through poetry and drawings

Date: 
Monday, May 15th, 2017 - 7:00 pm

Children of the Intifada: Gaza through poetry and drawings.

 

For thirty years, author and artist Heather Spears has felt drawn to Gaza and Israel, and to the need to witness to the lives of children in crisis.

 

On Monday 15 May, 2017 at 7 pm, she will show a CD of her drawings from the Intifada, and read from her poetry, reflections on the years since then. She will conclude with current information about life in Gaza City, based on the longtime friendship between Heather and her adopted family in Gaza City.

 

The stop-over in Peterborough is thanks to her friends in the Quaker community here, who are co-supporters of the Gazan family of Mahmoud Khalid.

 

The event will take place at Sadleir House, 751 George St. N. This is a free event, with refreshments served; however, donations are accepted. Palestinian Zatoun olive oil and Za'atar herb-packets will be available for purchase, in support of Palestinian farmers.

Residing in Copenhagen, Heather Spears is en route to annual readings in Toronto and on the west coast. She has toured this show in Canada and the US, also widely in Europe and at the UN. A Canadian poet, she has won the Pat Lowther award three times, the CBC Literary Award and the Governor-General's Award. www.heatherspears.com/biography.htm

 

Dr. Jonathan Fine, a director of Physicians for Human Rights, has called Spears drawings a moving contribution to understanding the suffering of Palestinians under occupation, an instance where drawings and sparse commentary have power transcending almost any other kind of communication.

 

Heather will also present at the Spill on George St. the following evening, April 16, 7 p.m., where she will read from her Sci-Fi novels. That is part of the ChiSeries, with local writers Nathan Adler and Ursula Pflug.

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Date: 
Monday, May 1st, 2017 (All day) to Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 (All day)

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual

Assault Awareness Month.

 

Art has the power to help us think differently about things.

 

Peterborough, Ontario – April 10, 2017 > Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and participating artists welcome Sexual Assault: The Roadshow to Peterborough for May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is a pop up, participatory art gallery in a shipping container. The retrofitted, glass fronted container will travel on a flat-bed truck to 15 cities/areas in Ontario over a three-year period. At each stop, local anti-violence experts will work with local artists and participants to create, curate and exhibit art that "talks back" to sexual assault.

 

Recently, there has been unprecedented dialogue and awareness about the crime and sexual violence in general.   Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will serve as work and exhibition space for multiple art forms that will further that dialogue in creative, community based and transformative ways.

 

For the month of May, Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will be placed in the parking lot of the PACE program at PCVS, 201 McDonnel Street in Peterborough. During this time, local artists Anne Taylor, Micky Renders, Shelley King and Barb Hawthorn will conduct workshops and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in their collective vision of the "Facing Faceless" project. Additionally, there will be an opening and closing exhibitions which will be open to the public. Art created in stops in Toronto, Ohsweken and Hamilton will also be on display. Art workshops and exhibition times are posted at kawarthasexualassaultcentre.com, on Facebook or contact the Centre at 705-748-5901 for more information.

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is an Ontario wide community arts education project by sexual assault activist Jane Doe and artist/activist Lillian Allen. It is funded by the Ontario Arts Council and Vtape.

Awakening to Moments
 
 
The latest post to your Hospice Peterborough Stories Blog by: David Kennedy, Supportive Care Counsellor, Hospice Peterborough
 
 
It was a very intense moment. The air was literally heavy with grief. She had just finished telling me the story of the sudden unexpected death of the love of her life. As she had poured out their life together, there was a deep sadness that pervaded all other emotions. Even those moments we laughed at a memory were wrapped in a shroud of sadness and disbelief...

The Electric City Culture Council (EC3) in partnership with Artspace Presents: New Visions/Old Land A Special Project organized as part of Peterborough's Canada 150: Downtown Celebrations

The Electric City Culture Council (EC3) in partnership with Artspace Presents: New Visions/Old Land A Special Project organized as part of Peterborough's Canada 150: Downtown Celebrations

Date: 
Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 (All day) to Friday, Jun 16th, 2017 (All day)
 
The Electric City Culture Council (EC3) in partnership with Artspace
Presents:


New Visions/Old Land

A Special Project organized as part of Peterborough's
Canada 150: Downtown Celebrations

 
CALL FOR PROPOSALS FROM ARTISTS
 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
It is the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation in 2017, but the land and the people are much older.  This project asks artists to reimagine what "Canada" means, to put forth new visions of what the idea of Canada could or should be.  Who are we?  What does it mean to be Canadian?  What is the role of the land and the landscape in shaping this definition?  How can we trace an outline of the future in the fragments of the past?  What is the relationship between the material world that surrounds us and the ideology we use to interpret its meaning?  How can we represent this fixed geographical place and our collective cultural and social space?  What histories have remained hidden, and how can we bring them to light?  And, what should we be highlighting, remembering, moving towards?  Recasting the past, inventing alternative futures.
 
WE ARE COMMISSIONING FOUR (4) NEW MEDIA ART WORKS TO ILLUSTRATE THIS THEME FOR PETERBOROUGH'S CANADA 150 CELEBRATIONS.
 
WHEN:  June 30th, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

WHERE:  Hunter St. West from George St.  to Sam's Deli
 
WHAT:  The goal of this project is to create a media landscape of moving and projected images, music and sound, on Hunter St. West, that allows us to reimagine and re-present the idea of Canada at 150. 
 
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?  We are looking for four (4) media artists to make new works that bring their unique voice and vision to the discourse on Canada, to show us with their eyes, minds and bodies, new histories that we can carry forward.  They will work with musicians and/or sound artists to create live performance on June 30th to accompany the media work.
 
THE PROJECT CHALLENGE: 
The works must be silent and no more than 5 minutes long.
Applications in any genre are welcome and experimentation with moving image structures and norms is encouraged.  There must be a live music or sound component as part of the June 30th event.  In your application, please include information on how the silent media work will relate to the live sound/music performance.  Artists are encouraged to survey Hunter St. West from the corner of George St. North to Sam's Deli, and suggest possible locations and ways of presenting their work.  Artists will work with the project Curator Kelly Egan to determine final sites and exhibition formats.
 
HOW?
EC3 AND ARTSPACE WILL PROVIDE:

  • Artists will receive a fee of $1,750 for their work and that of the musicians/sound artists.
  • Artists will receive free access to Artspace's production and post-production equipment and facilities.  Please see http://artspace-arc.org/media-lab/booking/ for an equipment inventory list.
  • Artists will work with project Curator, Kelly Egan (filmmaker and Trent University Cultural Studies Professor) to develop and site their project on Hunter St. West.
  • There will be technical assistance and equipment available for exhibition/presentation design and delivery.

Happy National Wildlife Week!
 
Spring is here and the habitats that you help KLT protect are being put to good use by wildlife!
 

In the fields of our Dance Nature Sanctuary, woodcocks are doing their elaborate aerial dance at dusk.

Salamanders are rubbing snouts as they find mates in the still icy ponds of our Stony Lake trails.

And on 
Big (Boyd/Chiminis) Island, baby porcupines, born with soft quills that harden within hours are sleeping cozily in standing dead trees. 

Thank you for helping Protect the Land You Love and providing safe havens for our wildlife friends.  

 
Find Your Happy Place at a KLT Event!

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Date: 
Monday, May 1st, 2017 (All day) to Wednesday, May 31st, 2017 (All day)

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is Coming to Peterborough in Honour of May's Sexual

Assault Awareness Month.

 

Art has the power to help us think differently about things.

 

Peterborough, Ontario – April 10, 2017 > Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre and participating artists welcome Sexual Assault: The Roadshow to Peterborough for May's Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is a pop up, participatory art gallery in a shipping container. The retrofitted, glass fronted container will travel on a flat-bed truck to 15 cities/areas in Ontario over a three-year period. At each stop, local anti-violence experts will work with local artists and participants to create, curate and exhibit art that "talks back" to sexual assault.

 

Recently, there has been unprecedented dialogue and awareness about the crime and sexual violence in general.   Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will serve as work and exhibition space for multiple art forms that will further that dialogue in creative, community based and transformative ways.

 

For the month of May, Sexual Assault: The Roadshow will be placed in the parking lot of the PACE program at PCVS, 201 McDonnel Street in Peterborough. During this time, local artists Anne Taylor, Micky Renders, Shelley King and Barb Hawthorn will conduct workshops and provide opportunities for the community to get involved in their collective vision of the "Facing Faceless" project. Additionally, there will be an opening and closing exhibitions which will be open to the public. Art created in stops in Toronto, Ohsweken and Hamilton will also be on display. Art workshops and exhibition times are posted at kawarthasexualassaultcentre.com, on Facebook or contact the Centre at 705-748-5901 for more information.

 

Sexual Assault: The Roadshow is an Ontario wide community arts education project by sexual assault activist Jane Doe and artist/activist Lillian Allen. It is funded by the Ontario Arts Council and Vtape.

Awakening to Moments
 
 
The latest post to your Hospice Peterborough Stories Blog by: David Kennedy, Supportive Care Counsellor, Hospice Peterborough
 
 
It was a very intense moment. The air was literally heavy with grief. She had just finished telling me the story of the sudden unexpected death of the love of her life. As she had poured out their life together, there was a deep sadness that pervaded all other emotions. Even those moments we laughed at a memory were wrapped in a shroud of sadness and disbelief...

The Electric City Culture Council (EC3) in partnership with Artspace Presents: New Visions/Old Land A Special Project organized as part of Peterborough's Canada 150: Downtown Celebrations

Date: 
Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 (All day) to Friday, Jun 16th, 2017 (All day)
 
The Electric City Culture Council (EC3) in partnership with Artspace
Presents:


New Visions/Old Land

A Special Project organized as part of Peterborough's
Canada 150: Downtown Celebrations

 
CALL FOR PROPOSALS FROM ARTISTS
 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
It is the 150th anniversary of Canadian confederation in 2017, but the land and the people are much older.  This project asks artists to reimagine what "Canada" means, to put forth new visions of what the idea of Canada could or should be.  Who are we?  What does it mean to be Canadian?  What is the role of the land and the landscape in shaping this definition?  How can we trace an outline of the future in the fragments of the past?  What is the relationship between the material world that surrounds us and the ideology we use to interpret its meaning?  How can we represent this fixed geographical place and our collective cultural and social space?  What histories have remained hidden, and how can we bring them to light?  And, what should we be highlighting, remembering, moving towards?  Recasting the past, inventing alternative futures.
 
WE ARE COMMISSIONING FOUR (4) NEW MEDIA ART WORKS TO ILLUSTRATE THIS THEME FOR PETERBOROUGH'S CANADA 150 CELEBRATIONS.
 
WHEN:  June 30th, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

WHERE:  Hunter St. West from George St.  to Sam's Deli
 
WHAT:  The goal of this project is to create a media landscape of moving and projected images, music and sound, on Hunter St. West, that allows us to reimagine and re-present the idea of Canada at 150. 
 
WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?  We are looking for four (4) media artists to make new works that bring their unique voice and vision to the discourse on Canada, to show us with their eyes, minds and bodies, new histories that we can carry forward.  They will work with musicians and/or sound artists to create live performance on June 30th to accompany the media work.
 
THE PROJECT CHALLENGE: 
The works must be silent and no more than 5 minutes long.
Applications in any genre are welcome and experimentation with moving image structures and norms is encouraged.  There must be a live music or sound component as part of the June 30th event.  In your application, please include information on how the silent media work will relate to the live sound/music performance.  Artists are encouraged to survey Hunter St. West from the corner of George St. North to Sam's Deli, and suggest possible locations and ways of presenting their work.  Artists will work with the project Curator Kelly Egan to determine final sites and exhibition formats.
 
HOW?
EC3 AND ARTSPACE WILL PROVIDE:

  • Artists will receive a fee of $1,750 for their work and that of the musicians/sound artists.
  • Artists will receive free access to Artspace's production and post-production equipment and facilities.  Please see http://artspace-arc.org/media-lab/booking/ for an equipment inventory list.

Art Pop-Ups with the Peterborough Art Hive
Fridays in May and June
10:00 AM - noon

 

What if we could connect with each other, our community, & ourselves through the arts?
What if we had a place we could go where we were seen as creative beings, capable & whole? 
What if that place were free, offered a variety of materials, space, & encouragement to create? 
What if it were okay to knit quietly on your own, make a mural with a group, write a poem, work on a song, scribble with charcoal and paint over it with bright blue paint?

The Peterborough Art Hive is partnering with Seeds of Change to run a weekly Pop Up Art Studio intended to foster creativity and encourage experimentation in an atmosphere of cultural exchange, conversation, encouragement, and freedom of expression.

This is for people of all ages, all orientations, all abilities, all walks of life. No art experience necessary.

Supplies will be provided and the event is free of charge (donations welcome).

You might like to help to hold open an hour for peace on Monday, January 30, 2017, 5-6 p.m. On the last Monday of each month peacemongers can be found on the corner of George and McDonnel, in front of the labyrinth. We speak of internal peace, transformative justice leading to peace, nonviolent peaceful communication, municipal peacebuilding, national and international priorities to support the global longing for peace. We will bring signs and lanterns and a banner, but if you like feel free to bring your own message and your own light.

The monthly Vigil for Peace

The monthly Vigil for Peace

Date: 
Monday, May 29th, 2017 - 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm

The monthly Vigil for Peace is this Monday, May 29. It's seed time, and on that corner for one hour each month we seek to plant the seeds of peace, not war. Make your own placard or carry one from our growing collection!

Jo Hayward-Haines, one of the first organizers of this vigil, sent this article. "Let's hand shovels and seedlings to weapons company stockholders so they can reap some meaningful returns." Link: https://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/05/19/lets-skip-war-part-and-go-right-reparations?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=email_this&utm_source=email

Jo writes: "Little seeds here in Peterborough– sidewalk mediation, Peterborough Pollinators, participatory budget etc.  This is the best perspective I've seen in a while on this issue – how rare it is that anyway relates militarism to the ravages of climate change?"

Other Peace Council members send news of wonderful local resources now available to train us all in non-violent communication. I'll send you that latest notice in a separate email. Non-violent communication only feels counter-intuitive because our society has become so imbued in the discourse of confrontation and attack. To change minds, we need to get in touch with feelings and needs.

Bring the dog or the kid, and spend an hour for peace next Monday, 5-6 pm, corner George and McDonnel.
