Community Outreach Project

My name is Michael Rzemieniecki.

I can be contacted at

541 731 9027 by text or call

Rzemie@gmail.com for emails.

I am a nurse working at Sacred Heart Medical Center University District. I work specifically in the Emergency Department and I am a member of the Unit Based Council(UBC) for the department. In a meeting with the administrative team I had suggested we reach out to create murals for the rooms in the Secure side of the Emergency Department. This would be volunteer work in which the hospital could provide necessary supplies for the students.

The Secure side of the Emergency Department can be summed up as a crisis stabilization area for psychiatric emergencies. The reasons patients arrive here are incredibly varied but the common thread running through all of them is they are all experiencing a dark moment.

The secure side serves an essential function for all types of people, including U of O students, children, elderly, and the homeless. It keeps them safe when they have been determined to be unsafe. This can be that they are in danger because of their situation but often it is when a patient is unsafe with themselves. This can include patients who are actively suicidal, having suicidal ideation, drug or alcohol problems, are experiencing general depression or a slew of other mental health emergencies. I genuinely believe our staff does their best to comfort the patients in this time but visually, the first sight of the department is often times shocking and traumatic. The walls are off white with white speckled floors and may contain a large chair, a side table, and always, a sleeping mat. Patients cannot have their belongings in this room in order to keep them safe. One of the 12 rooms has a TV. Otherwise, patients are left in a small white room, alone with their thoughts (and either a book/magazine, radio, and/or paper and pencils and occasional interactions with staff) after a very traumatic event or in the midst of a very unstable or dark state of mind.

The current director for the Emergency Department is someone who prioritizes improving mental health care at our facility and has already instated many policies to create a more comforting environment. We feel that students would be so much better suited to complete this project rather than contracting an artist.

Our next UBC meeting is on March 10th. If the students could submit ideas by that date, I could present them to administration.

large scale mural art commission project

I was wondering if there might be any students looking for a large scale mural art commission project?

I have a couple of buildings with large blank walls that are just begging for something more visually appealing, and I would love to give new, budding artists a shot at participating (if vicariously) in the 20×21 project.

The two walls I am looking to get work done on are on student housing properties and are approximately 20×20. One is on the ground level and one is on the top two floors of a 3 story building.

If anyone is interested, I would be happy to show them the surfaces and see if it would work for them.

The Sign of the Enterer – Stacy Jo Scott and Jovencio de la Paz

Ditch Projects is pleased to present

The Sign of the Enterer

Stacy Jo Scott and Jovencio de la Paz

Screening

Saturday, January 11th

7-8pm

Performance. Reading accompanied by Moog Mother 32 system and Korg ms20.

The Sign of the Enterer describes the space of queer embodiment and desire, the digital and material, the seen and unseen.

The space between is a space of action, of power, of conjuring. It is a moment in time, and an endless shift. The utopia of this text is not a cataclysmic becoming into a new state for humanity. Rather this utopia is a shift of individual consciousness and claimed agency, from moment to moment. It imagines an awakening into freedom, pleasure, and kinship, as signified by the queer and the cyborg. We learn from these icons to create the world as we are created by the world. As agents we are encouraged to choose to shift our time in one direction or another, from moment to moment. It is the locus of a shared politic of empowered interaction with the other.

This Performance/Reading is part of A Good Way to Invent the Future, co-curated by Ditch Projects Co-Artistic and Executive Directors Mike Bray and Marissa Lee Benedict, and generously supported by a Documentation and Exhibition Grant from the Ford Family Foundation. The exhibition runs from December 2019 – January 2020.

Call for Submissions

We accept poetry, fiction, nonfiction, art, and comics by anyone enrolled as an undergraduate in the U.S. during the 2019-20 academic year. (December grads are still eligible.) We award $100 prizes to the top submission in each genre. Submission is free and easy at:
https://furrowmagazine.submittable.com.

Deadline: February 20.

Selection is competitive, so please encourage students to send their most polished work. Last year Furrow featured work from students at 41 schools, selected from over 1,000 submissions. We’re proud to say we won the 2019AWP Program Directors’ Prize for Best Undergraduate Literary Journal (Content).

Boasting the tallest mountain “Mauna Kea”, the world’s most active volcano, “Kilauea” and the largest mountain “Mauna Loa” (in cubic feet), the Big Island of Hawaii is a treasure of geological extremes like nowhere else on Earth. During our internship program students gets to experience and study most of the micro climates available on this island.

Big Island Farms, a vibrant 64 acre collection of tropical fruit trees, macadamia nut orchards, permaculture food forests, botanical gardens & medicinal gardens began simply with a decade long effort to restore and revitalize the soil, flora and fauna of these treasured lands. After many years of allowing the natural ecosystems to re-establish themselves and create a biodynamic ecology our team began this mission to establish a unique experiential education program. Mulching tropical grasses that, at times, reach seven to ten feet high, we have reclaimed the orchards and farmlands replenishing and protecting the soils, establishing new gardens and reinvigorating the orchards along the way. Our team coalesces around a shared vision of sustainability, community, and the desire to understand how to live off the land through a process of discovering the deeper rooted connections that we all share within the holistic connection of organic permaculture. We are searching for like-minded individuals who we can share our knowledge with and who can also leave their mark at Big Island Farms.

Through our interdisciplinary education model, which incorporates classes, tangible hands-on experience, expeditions and guest speakers, students will actively pursue their passions, learn to broaden their worldviews, and work towards a more sustainable lifestyle.

Located in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, Franconia Sculpture Park is a nonprofit arts organization operating a 43-acre outdoor sculpture park, active artist residency, and community arts programming. Franconia was founded in 1996 by a small group of professional artists who envisioned a supportive artist residency community in a rural setting. Today, this vision has been achieved through an active artist residency and public programming that serves over 150,000 annual visitors.

Franconia Sculpture Park’s Artist Residency programs provide the opportunity for artists and/or artist teams to create ambitious new projects, interact and collaborate with fellow artists, and impact the public through sculpture, land art, socially engaged art, multidisciplinary art, installation, and/or performative works of art.

Opportunity 1: Fellowship Artist Residency

Franconia Sculpture Park’s Fellowship Artist Residency Program provides the opportunity for artists and/or artist teams to create ambitious new projects, interact and collaborate with a community of makers, and impact the public. Artists at any stage in their career, working in sculpture, installation, land art, social practice and performance are welcome to apply for residency for a minimum of three weeks and a maximum of three months between April 5 and September 15, 2020. Selected artists will each receive a private bedroom and shared workspace to create new work at Franconia, along with a $5,000 award to fund their project.

Opportunity 2: Intern Artist Residency

The Intern Artist Residency Program at Franconia offers undergraduate and graduate students, as well as emerging artists the opportunity to create public artwork, develop their artistic practice, receive mentorship from professional artists-in-residence, and participate in public engagement programs while in residency at Franconia. The rural setting and the chance to work along-side peers, mid-career artists, and visiting art curators creates a dynamic setting for artists to grow, learn, and mature.

The Intern Artist Residency Program began with the park’s founding in 1996 and has grown to support more than 200 emerging artists to date. Recognized by the National Foundation for the Advancement in the Arts for program excellence, the program is designed to bridge the gap between the academic world of artistic training and a professional career. In exchange for housing, meals, and studio space, selected artists’ commit to working for Franconia Sculpture Park for five hours per day, six days per week.
