call for performing artists

SEEDArts and the Rainier Valley Cultural Center are seeking Performing Artists for Valley Vibes, a new music series focusing on jazz in 2011.

Valley Vibes is an event geared towards bringing together artists and audiences who might not otherwise cross paths. The event will feature a formal concert experience followed by a community conversation involving the performing artists and a featured speaker on a topic related thematically to the performance or performing group. The event artist(s) will perform in the auditorium and also participate in the conversation event after the performance.

celebrate women in film & 3 CD releases

We've got a week full of celebrations at Columbia City Theater. Three talented local artists will release their new CDs: singer-songwriter Kris Orlowski (Thursday), punk rockers Virgin Islands (Friday) and the jaunty vaudeville pop of Curtains for You (Saturday). But that's not all — from 7 to 9pm on Friday, we'll be joining SIFF in celebrating the many talented women film-makers in this year's film festival.
