Stand up comedians and graff writers have a lot in common – both hustling nonstop to make their visions a reality. This coming Sunday at Yo Space Gallery & Studios we’re going to prove it by throwing these two cultures a shindig where these artforms can thrive.
This innovative new night will welcome graffiti writers and street artists to swap slaps and sketchbooks (think: Writer’s Bench http://www.at149st.com/bench.html) and add in an open mic starting midway into the night, including comedy, spoken word, music and more.
Hosted by comics Regi Desjardins and Abe Perez, there’ll be plenty going on to keep you entertained while you get down in a sketchbook or trade some stickers with fellow collectors.
We’ll have refreshments, and as always ping pong table and N64 to fill in the gaps and everything else you need for a laid back good time.

The selection process is split into 4 parts categorizing a curated compilation made up of: A Presenting artist; Featured and Invited Artists; as well as juried artworks. To guarantee the best outcome, the collection of art is chosen by knowledgeable art experts and curators from some of the world’s most prestigious art museums and galleries.

ENTERTAINMENT
We will have an incredible entertainment line up this year with a different theme each of the 3 days of the art festival. Our Sensual performances will delight and tantalize all your erogenous spots.

THE EXPERIENCE:
*** Celebrating the sensual aspects of Art + Music + Fashion + Entertainment

It’s time to say goodbye to summer (boo!) and hello to a new school year, so what better way to celebrate this (and say until next year, lovely summer) than with some awesome 90s grunge music? Once a month Artistic Vibes, otherwise known as AV, produces a booked music and poetry night called ReVerb. This month AV presents a totally 90s infused Grunge ReVerb. Some of the line-up for this month includes the very popular local band Panda-Rama, Vee & the Villains, the amazing poet Erika Marrero, and, of course, a performance by our own house poet Narciso Montas (who will make your heart beat faster with his poetry!).

Lets continue to enjoy the beautiful summer weather and vibes with a Luau themed ReVerb. Don’t know what a ReVerb is? A reverberation, or ReVerb, is created when a sound or signal is reflected causing a large number of reflections to build up and then decay as the sound is absorbed by the surfaces of objects in the space… At AV the sounds and words never decay… they’ll echo through the crowd and energize the vibe throughout the night. So come out, kick back, free your, mind and express your soul! And this month AV will be celebrating the love we all feel for the summer with an amazing line-up that includes: Rene Castell, Juan Gamero, The Motels, Lucille, Above the Skyline, Folks Tale San Pedro and many more!

Proxy Selves: a fast-paced, prompt-driven writing workshop with Girls’ Club writer in residence Jan Becker

$20 registration

“Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes.”
– Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself”

Proxy Selves is a poetry/creative nonfiction workshop that will explore and give voice to the multitudes of self contained within each writer.
Participants will explore how relationships, politics, setting, time and other factors alter others’ perception of us as individuals, and how projection of self is altered under different circumstances. Participants can expect to produce a series of short poetry/creative nonfiction pieces, gain inspiration for further writing after the workshop concludes, and become more comfortable with developing a drafting process.

Writers of any level are welcome. This generative workshop is designed to silence the inner critic that plagues most writers, and allow access to an uninhibited writing voice–or as Whitman might phrase it, sound a “barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.”
