Save-It Forwards // Tara Kirmse: An enlightening hour of viral prophesy and salvation. Illuminating the messages of e-chain-mail via word-of-mouth sharing, and respective pamphlet give away that will inspire you to pass-on this valuable information outside the confines of cyber-share. Let us not relegate these memes to our spam-bins. Save-It Forwards!
Cheerleadership // Maria Molteni : Intrigued by the tornado of directionless bi-partisan arguments found in current news, e-mail blasts, and protests, Maria will deliver an enthusiastic mashup of political catch-phrases and predictable platforms, posing as a cheerleader rooting for the defeat of the “other team” with little room for contemplation or reflection. She will be happy to take submissions and requests.
Threat Level Sext / Need To Know Basis // That Somebody: Fear is in the air. Drones are in the sky. Government creeps are reading your sexts. Boots are on the ground in Africa. Let me blow your mind by pulling back the curtain and connecting the dots. Nothing is sacred. What is intelligence? What is terrorism? A treatise on 21st century control.
3 - 5:30 pm // Baptist Hospital // Parker Hill Ave, Mission Hill // T accessible
Trading Personal for Public // Alice Vogler // 3pm: We each have our own relationship with the health of our body and mind. It is often times not shared or discussed. And yet we are constantly being inundated with what could be wrong, what we need to take, what is “normal”. This piece addresses all of these issues. Please come and join me to share and learn.
Truck Top Meditation & Prayer // Helen Miller // 4:40pm: After a silent counting meditation, we will follow a sequence of motions commonly used in prayer. We will begin simply, by bringing our palms together, and move in several directions from there. The unfolding rhythm of the lesson will be gentle and absorbing, cultivating humility and receptivity, and preparing us for an evening of ceremony and dance.
6:30 - 9pm // Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston and Vicinity // T accessible
Rosaries for Our Lady of Good Voyage // Maria Molteni & Ashley Capachione // 6:30pm: We invite participants to gather at the Chapel of Our Lady of Good Voyage to pray the Rosary together. We will teach the prayers from this Catholic tradition in support of the Chapel’s well being and to protest of the parking lots and developments encroaching upon its generous history and property.
Scenic Overlook, WWJ(immy buffet)D? // Jordan Tynes & Taylor McVay // 7:30pm:
Please join us at our romantic vista for a moment of respite from the day’s distractions. Reflect upon the landscape whilst being served a libation, washed down by tropical tunes. No day of intervention should be without reassuring hiatuses or moments of introspection.
Let us know if you need anything else!
