Volunteer Opportunity

Interested in studying drumming, dancing, and singing of Ghana, West Africa? Bubusɔ is a new performance ensemble specializing in the traditions of primarily Ewe and Dagomba people.

Bring your energy and enthusiasm for world music and we’ll teach you the rest. The goal is to be ready to perform for paying gigs once we have enough repertoire under our belts!

Auditions will be held on Tuesday December 12, from 6-8pm for all who are interested! Auditions will be held like one big class. I’ll be teaching certain skills, rhythms, and movements and will be looking for people who are capable of picking things up quickly. Please PM me to confirm your spot and get more info!

Propose a session for the 2024 Pacific Northwest History Conference: History Everywhere, All at Once, taking place in Portland, Oregon, October 18 & 19, 2024!

Events of the past few years have truly been historic, leading to a flood of new scholarship and public attention to events related to public health, racial injustice, climate disruption, and the fragility of democratic institutions. The 2024 Pacific Northwest History Conference offers space for sharing the ways you are using regional history to make meaning of, or to escape from, the present — and to imagine the future.

The program committee seeks proposals in the format of panel discussions or roundtables, academic presentations, or workshops for educators or other practitioners. Proposals should be connected to the history of the Pacific Northwest, from British Columbia to Idaho to northern California and all points in between and can be strictly about the past or about practices related to the work of understanding and educating about the past. Academics, graduate students, educators, community knowledge-holders, and public history practitioners of all kinds are encouraged to submit presentation proposals and to plan to attend the conference, which will include special sessions for K–12 educators.

Proposals are due by January 5, 2024. Learn more and submit your proposal at ohs.org/pnwhc2024

Calling all artists! We Belong Seattle has partnered with The Fishbowl to curate February 2024’s show whose theme is “From the Margins.” ⁣

They invite artists to submit original works of art that address the theme of marginalization so that we can all step into the margins, to make visible what is invisible, and conscious what is unconscious.

Submissions are due December 21st!

We are seeking poems as part of a volume of contemporary Indigenous LGBTQ2SIA+ poetry.  It has been over a decade since the publication of a book dedicated to two-spirit literature (Sovereign Erotics, 2011).  Before that, only a couple existed: Living the Spirit: A Gay American Indian Anthology (1988) (before the term  “two-spirit” was coined), and the Fall 2010 edition of the Yellow Medicine Review: A Journal of Indigenous Literature and Art and Thought. Many exciting authors have emerged since, attesting Native activism, land, food, sovereignty, and language revitalization which have become increasingly successful.  Along with the project concept is a growing awareness that people outside the gender binary have always existed with traditionally respected roles within Native communities.  Poetry has a crucial part to play in Indigenous activism and language revitalization; poetry in the form of song is also at the center of our religious traditions.  To give a sense of the scope of two-spirit poetry, the goal is to present a mix of established and emerging writers.  To create a space for young poets,and unpublished poets, and represent the various regions and sovereign nations within the U.S.  This collection will begin and reflect the current movement into a powerful futurity, guided by the voices of Indigenous poets whose genders and sexualities are fluid and expansive.
