    ONLINE ONLY: Know Origins - "Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution" Screening

    5:30 PM - 7:30 PM | Tuesday -

    Watch this award-winning documentary on the disability rights movement. Ages 17+.

    This is an online program. The film will be livestreamed via Zoom. Register by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    HOW TO WATCH
    You can watch the livestream of the film from 5:30-7:30pm via Zoom or watch independently using your own Netflix account. ASL interpretation and Closed Captioning will be provided.

    ABOUT THE FILM
    Down the road from Woodstock, a revolution blossomed at a ramshackle summer camp for teenagers with disabilities, transforming their lives and igniting a landmark movement.

    In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a camp "for the handicapped" in the Catskills, exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and makeout sessions awaiting everyone, and campers who felt fulfilled as human beings. Their bonds endured as they migrated West to Berkeley, California - a promised land for a growing and diverse disability community - where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption and unity might secure life-changing accessibility for millions. Co-directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nicole Newnham and film mixer and former camper Jim LeBrecht, this joyous and exuberant documentary arrives the same year as the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, at a time when the country's largest minority group still battles daily for the freedom to exist.

    CRIP CAMP: A DISABILITY REVOLUTION is executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan; Oscar nominee Howard Gertler and Ray Lifchez, Jonathan Logan and Patty Quillin; LeBrecht, Newnham and Sara Bolder produce.

    Downtown Bend: Origins of Transformation - Sound Yoga and Gong Bath Meditation

    6:30 PM - 8:00 PM | Thursday - Brooks Room * Registration Required

    Relax deeply in this sound therapy session. All are welcome.

    This is an in-person program. Registration is required. Masks are required at all in-person library events.

    WHAT TO EXPECT:
    The class begins with a brief explanation of the healing attributes of the gong and other sound therapy instruments. We open the space with a mantra and then use light movement and breathwork to prepare the body for the flow of energy to create a receptive experience for deep relaxation. Participants will then get comfortable by lying down (preferred) or in another comfortable position for 30-45 minutes to receive the multiple sounds, vibrations, and other resonant tones and frequencies. As we build the sound and intensity of the Gongs, we allow the sounds to naturally decay, creating build and release cycles which are deeply therapeutic.

    This is called a bath as every cell in the body is “bathed” in vibration, allowing us to “release,” very much like a physical massage, stored physical and emotional tension. The participant only needs to relax into letting go and the gongs do the rest of the work. While the experience requires very little effort, the results are profound.

    A Gong bath is a very personal and unique experience. Gongs speak to each of us differently, on many different levels of our physical, energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. It is a time of deep relaxation and expansion, where transformation and healing can occur.

    All body types, belief systems, and experience levels welcome. Please bring a Yoga mat/ Pillow/ Blanket to maximize your comfort during the class.

    KEVIN KRAFT BIO:
    Kevin is the owner and founder of Soundshala (www.soundshala.com), a unique mindfulness curriculum combining music, breath, movement and meditation to help achieve the mindful benefits of a sound yoga practice. This is evident in the soundscape of voice, gongs, flutes, crystal and Tibetan bowls, drums and other instruments that can help us relax and release deeply into balance.

    Kevin Kraft found his way into the world of yoga by healing a severe back injury in 2004. Yoga did what so many other modalities could not and within a short period of time the injury healed. From the physical practice, Kevin became enamored by the many paths of yoga and personal awareness development. Kevin’s practice is focused on consciously accessing the inner teacher and fully coming into the resonance that all healing is accessible within.

    ONLINE ONLY: Know Comics - Comics Journalism

    12:00 PM - 1:00 PM | Wednesday -

    Explore this provocative form of nonfiction comics art and mode of reportage.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    The rapid dissemination of inaccurate information and fake news across multiple communication platforms has eroded public faith in traditional media, creating a climate of skepticism with regard to such basic notions as journalistic integrity and expert testimony. In the face of these dilemmas, comics journalism has emerged as a powerful alternative mode of reportage. Practitioners in this field re-assert the ethical value of truth-telling, while at the same time foregrounding and reframing the inevitably subjective dimensions involved in any act of witnessing through the use of hand-drawn visual narrative. Without shying away from vital questions about the role of representation in the perception of reality, comics journalists are nevertheless telling stories that urgently need to be told—in an immediate and accessible way. In her talk, Prof. Kelp-Stebbins will explore this provocative form of nonfiction comics art.

    Kate Kelp-Stebbins (she/her/hers) is Assistant Professor of English and Associate Director of Comics and Cartoon Studies at the University of Oregon. Her work examines comics and visual media as tools for rethinking world literature and remapping transnational media flows. Her work has been published in Feminist Media Histories, Media Fields, Studies in Comics, and anthologies including The Oxford Handbook of Comic Book Studies, Comics Studies Here and Now, and The Comics of Alison Bechdel. Her book, How Comics Travel: Translation, Publication, Radical Literacies, is in press with the Ohio State University Press, and uses comparative methodology to analyze world economies of comics through the apertures of translation, cultural imperialism, and print cultures. Her research and teaching practices are informed by feminist, anti-racist, and anticolonial theories. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature in 2014 from UC Santa Barbara.

    Downtown Bend: Writers Writing - Using the Physical to Write about the Emotional

    12:00 PM - 1:30 PM | Friday - Brooks Room * Registration Required

    Discover the power of using physical objects as prompts.

    This is an in‐person program. Registration is required. Masks are required at all in‐person library events.

    Finding a Way In: Using Physical Objects to Write about the Emotional

    As writers (and human beings), sometimes it’s hard to get to the heart of what we want to say. Maybe we want to write about a particular memory or a person who has affected us deeply, but we just don’t know where to start. One method for tackling challenging subjects is to do so indirectly.

    In this generative workshop, we will use physical objects as a starting point for writing about the emotional through a series of prompts that draw on memory and observation. Writers will be encouraged to use these prompts to produce work in any genre.

    Eileen Sather is an Assistant Professor of English at Central Oregon Community College, and she holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Minnesota State University. While she tends to dabble mostly in writing fiction herself, she loves to read and teach a variety of genres. She is also on a constant quest to find as many good children’s books as possible to keep her 18-month-old daughter happily reading.

    Downtown Bend: Black History Month - Food Is Culture

    3:00 PM - 5:00 PM | Saturday - Brooks Room * Registration Required

    Learn about the importance of food in Black culture.

    This is an in-person program. Registration is required. Masks are required at all in-person library events.

    Victoria Guthrie presents information about the importance of food in relation to black culture. Culturally, food points to pertinent historical information about people; where they came from, what they went through and the strength and creativity required to survive hardships. Soul food played a major role in shaping American cuisine and tells a colorful story about black history. This presentation will cover food-related terms and their ties to black culture. Join us as we discuss and take time to sample some authentic soul food. Remember, food is culture.

    Hello all, my name is Victoria and I am a descendant of the Maroon tribes in Jamaica. My love for food began at a very young age as I learned about my family's slave history through foods such as ox tail stew and chicken feet soup. Spreading the word about the importance of food within culture continues to be a strong value of mine and a lifelong goal. Hopefully, Bend will become a city that encourages community connections through word of mouth stories of our ancestors over the sharing of food. Let's dream together.

    ONLINE ONLY: Know Comics - Social Justice and Comics

    6:30 PM - 7:30 PM | Tuesday -

    Explore the unique power of comics to address social justice issues.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    Comics offer a complex lens through which to see social justice issues, including racism, immigration, and gender discrimination, to name just a few. Some examples within the medium have perpetuated offensive stereotypes, for example Eisner’s Ebony White in The Spirit from the 1940s and Harvey Comics’ Shirl the Jungle Girl from the late 1950s. Others, such as John Lewis’s story in March (2013-2016) and Bitch Planet (2014-2017) from Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro, have challenged these same problematic images.

    This talk explores the unique power of comics to address social justice issues of all types, by shining a spotlight on injustice and envisioning meaningful change.

    Elizabeth Pollard is Distinguished Professor for Teaching Excellence at San Diego State University, where she has been teaching courses in Roman History, World History, and witchcraft studies since 2002. She co-leads the Comics @ SDSU collaborative (2019-present) and is co-Champion of Comics and Social Justice for the SDSU President’s Big Ideas Initiative (2020-present). Pollard recently debuted a new Comics and History course that explores sequential art from the paleolithic to the present day. Her primary research investigates women accused of witchcraft in the Roman world and explores the exchange of goods and ideas between the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean in the early centuries of the Common Era. She is currently working on a graphic history exploring the influence of classical understandings of witchcraft on modern pop-culture representations of witches (from comics to film). Apart from her work on magic and comics, Pollard is co-author of Worlds Together Worlds Apart Concise, WTWA Full 6th edition, and the Worlds Together Worlds Apart, Companion Reader (W.W. Norton). She has also published on various pedagogical and digital history topics, including writing about witchcraft on Wikipedia, tweeting on the backchannel of the large lecture, and digital humanities approaches to visualizing Roman History. *zm*

    Group singing is one of the most ancient technologies of belonging. Especially after over a year of keeping away from one another, this is a potent opportunity to come together to give ourselves the neurochemical and emotional reboot of making beautiful sounds together.

    Community songleader Ian Carrick is reinvigorating our culture with singing. Somehow we've mostly forgotten that singing together is our birthright. After a decade of searching for accessible forms of community-based music and recovering his own voice, Ian founded Open Hub Singing in 2016 after discovering a widespread North American cultural revival of aural tradition singing.
