The Earth House Collective is a group of peace activists, conservationists, artists, musicians, Methodists, teachers and many more dedicated to peace, wellness, community and culture on the corner of New York and East streets in downtown Indianapolis.
We are having monthly screenings of Indiana independent film through the Earth House Film Forum. We accept entries from all genres and budget size including but not limited to shorts, features, experimental and documentary. We consider Indiana films to be films made in Indiana, or films with Indiana ties in subject matter, or any film in which any cast or crew member is an Indiana native.
The submissions are reviewed by the Earth House Collective Film Committee and are selected based on: artistic merit, representation of diverse communities, storyline, social awareness and responsibility, availability of the filmmaker to attend and collaborate with other filmmakers.

IndyFringe and the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis share open hearts, a passion for our missions, and an awareness of our diverse communities. We strive in providing creative avenues to reach you, inspire you, and to create opportunities of self expression and experiencing the expression of others.
The YMCA and IndyFringe want you to be informed about your health and the diabetes epidemic that is impacting central Indiana.
Did you know that diabetes is a global epidemic?
An estimated 21 million Americans have diabetes, but another 41 million people have the pre-diabetic condition of high blood sugar, putting them at high risk for developing the disease in the near future. The Indiana State Department of Health estimates that in 2006, over 5 billion dollars was spent on health care for those with diabetes. Simple lifestyle changes have proven to be successful in preventing diabetes.
A simple test (finger prick) can tell you if you are at risk and it takes just minutes. Participating in a prevention program can greatly help you reduce your risk. Want to learn more about our YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program? Contact the YMCA at 266-YMCA to find a DPP (Diabetes Prevention Program) near you.

BLANK SLATE: Art in The Moment.
Blank Slate is a festival new to Indianapolis which celebrates the art of improvisation.
Musicians and visual artists from around the Midwest will convene at EarthHouse Collective in downtown Indianapolis, to create original, evocative works of art. No scores, no script—just creativity and the imagination unleashed upon a blank slate.
What you won't hear at this festival is anything entirely familiar or pat. All of the musicians involved—from Chicago, to Indy, to New Orleans, to Detroit—bring different influences to bear on their improvisation but steer clear of settling into the established modes of genres. Is it jazz?- yes. Is it rock?- yes. Hip Hop, Musique Concrete…? Yes. It's all of the above and more, in different degrees and at different times.
When visual artists enter the dialogue, it takes on another dimension as musicians will respond not just to sound but visuals, and as musicians and artists alike are informed by each others' improvisation. Video artists and painters will be on hand.
Look for a preview of Blank Slate in this week's edition of NUVO. Also, friend us on Facebook for updates and blogs: www.facebook.com/
WHEN: Saturday, Aug. 8th from 4-11 pm. "Open house" style- come any time you like/are able to.
WHERE: EarthHouse Collective. 237 N. East St. (downtown Indy) www.earthhousecollective.org
HOW MUCH: $10 GEN. admission, which covers the full slate of acts. $7 students + seniors.
The music bill...(with links to sound sample pages)
- Video artists Ian Gunn and N_DREW (Andrew Bucksbarg) will be on hand, as will visual artist Cory Salas.

Big Smith To Bring Old Time Country/Neo-Hillbilly Music to Indy
INDIANAPOLIS, April 6, 2009-- Big Smith will make their Indianapolis debut at Earth House, 237 N. East St, on May 2. They will play at 9:00 PM with an opening band at 8:00 PM. Cover is $10 and the venue is open to all ages.
The Springfield, MO based band has built a devoted following playing a unique style of music that has been described as a raw, indigenous mountain sound, reinterperated by neo-hillbillies. Big Smith has opened up for headliners like Emmylou Harris and Del McCoury.
Performing together since 1996, the band now does over 100 shows a year. Composed of five cousins, led by frontman Mark Bilyeu, and joined by fiddler Molly Healey, Big Smith is still adored in their native Ozarks. Years of travel though have also earned them a place as a Midwest institution. As Big Smith begins work on album #6 to be released in the summer of 2009, they continue to enjoy the success of the five releases that document their many years together.
Their most recent studio CD is a double disc made with their young fans in mind, "Hay to Zzzzzz: Hillbilly Songs for Kids". It is a generous portion of music - 42 tracks spread across two CDs. Prior to "Hay to Zzzzzz," Big Smith released "Gig," another double CD. Long requested by fans, it is a generous sampling of what one can expect from the band's legendary club appearances. The catalog is rounded out by and a live gospel CD, "Live at Lonestar," that pays tribute to their family's musical roots.
The documentary "Homemade Hillbilly Jam," profiling the band and the music of their extended family, has garnered rave reviews and a legion of new fans through numerous screenings at film festivals around the world. The film will screen at Earth House on April 30th at 7:00 PM.
"It is important that Big Smith is bringing their unique Midwest sound to Indianapolis," said concert organizer Mike Oles. "The music should appeal to a wide group of people; blue grass and country fans, Indie rockers, and all those who are fascinated with America's deeply rooted music."

Earth House Modern Art Gallery presents:
Earth to Mike Graves
Recent collaborative works by Mike Graves & the BRIDGE Collective. An Artist Reception will be held March 20th from 5-11PM.
Contemporary American artist Mike Graves, born in Indiana. Extensive travel with his military family provided much influence and cultural diversity for many years before he made his way back to Indianapolis in 1992 to attend Herron School of Art where he studied sculpting and painting for two and a half years. Through his passion for art and his life experiences, he has developed an artistic identity that includes: painter, sculptor, musician.
Mike feels that he was born to be an artist; it comes natural to him, it makes him happy. He is a founding member of the BRIDGE Collective, a collaborative organization of artists, featuring an extensive selection of works. He has enjoyed success showing in galleries and participating in art and music events on local and national levels. Goals for the future are to continue to have fun, make a living thru art and music, and to take his art to an international audience. In his own words: "I think of my work as a free flowing experiment in motion. Utilizing collage elements, painting and mixed media, my mission is to produce work which will relate to and inspire the modern mind."
The Earth to Mike Graves Exhibit runs through April 13th.

Earth House begins Dinner & A Movie on February 26th, 2009
TROUBLE THE WATER will be showing at Earth House 237 N. East Street February 26th at 7PM. Film and popcorn Free. Dinner provided by EarthHouse Cafe specializing in organic fare. Dinner will be served from 5:30 to 6:30PM $10/plate Proceeds to benefit Earth House Film Forum.
TROUBLE THE WATER takes you inside Hurricane Katrina in a way never before seen on screen. It's a redemptive tale of two self-described street hustlers who become heroes-two unforgettable people who survive the storm and then seize a chance for a new beginning..
The film opens the day before the storm makes landfall-twenty-four year old aspiring rap artist Kimberly Rivers Roberts is turning her new video camera on herself and her 9th Ward neighbors trapped in the city. "It's going to be a day to remember," Kim declares. With no means to leave the city and equipped with just a few supplies and her hi 8 camera, she and her husband Scott tape their harrowing ordeal as the storm rages, the nearby levee breaches, and floodwaters fill their home and their community.
Seamlessly weaving 15 minutes of this home movie footage shot the day before and the day after the storm, with archival news segments and verite footage shot over two years, directors Tia Lessin and Carl Deal document a journey of remarkable people surviving not only failed levees, bungling bureaucrats and armed soldiers, but also their own past.
Directed and produced by Tia Lessin and Carl Deal and Executive Produced by Joslyn Barnes and Danny Glover of Louverture Films, edited and co-produced by T. Woody Richman, with addiitonal editing by Mary Lampson, Trouble the Water features an original musical score by Neil Davidge and Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack, and the music of Dr. John, Mary Mary, Citizen Cope, TK Soul, John Lee Hooker, and the Free Agents Brass Band and introduces the music of Black Kold Madina.
Trouble the Water has been supported by grants from the Sundance Institute, the Open Society Institute, and is a project of Creative Capital.

Indiana Electronic & Experimental Music Exposition at the Earth House Collective (237 N. East St.) on Saturday, February 28 , 2009 from 7-11 pm. The Ben Ishmael Revival,
a groove based quartet started by electronica pioneers John Tuttle and Kaiton Slusher, headlines
with Amtrak, The Glitch Clique, and Surreal Estate rounding out the bill.
Alongside the music will be live video by local animator Gibson Thorne and multi-media artist Ian Gunn.
The Ben Ishmael Revival has played recent shows at the Casba and at Birdy’s Bar and
Grill. Theirs is a rockin’ electronic experiment that should not be missed. The Revival is a hard
working group that brings something special to every performance. You must see it to believe it.
Amtrak hails from Morehead, KY. Flipping many styles from House to IDM with equal
mastery, it’s debut EP, "In Transit" has garnered national attention in the underground. Still a
relatively new group - began in 2005 - there is certainly a bright future ahead for Amtrak.
Conceived in 2004, the Glitch Clique is returning to action after a two-year absence.
Featuring the infamous Eric Brown of Audio Recon on everything from samples to drums to
vocals in a duet with jazz composer Bob Wilson – horns, piano, and birdcalls – the Glitch Clique
will surely be a very impressive improvisational performance of sound and music.
Surreal Estate is a mix of the sounds of space sifted through synths, classical keyboards
and violin. “Shake with ice and make the best damndest space martini you have ever had,” says
group founder Kelly Sheets.
A great group of people will be serving coffee and food downstairs. Come one and all to see the Indiana Electronic & Experimental Music Exposition.

Earth House Collective, 237 North East Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204
To Register: E-Mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Call 317.636.4060
This two part workshop begins as a group posture flow in circular form, making mandalas with the form of yoga asana and the connections of energy in the circle. This yoga practice helps create sacred space in ourselves and the space around us. In the second part of our workshop, we enter into a meditation that invites creative flow in making our mandalas.
Mandalas are circular symbolic images that can inspire wisdom and healing in our lives. We draw from the collective circle of energy in this space to help us empower our inner core and purpose in life. The symbolic mandalas we create will assist us as a visual meditative focus to take with us and incorporate into our lives.

hopefully we will have a new date for this ASAP.
