Indiana Filmmakers Series at The Earth House

September, 2009 7pm FREE to all

237 North East Street, Indianapolis IN 46204

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.

Indy Fringe and the YMCA’s quest for health!

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.

Don’t miss the Y/Fringe Diabetes Screening

Saturday, August 7th. BLANK SLATE

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:
