Street Medic Training

Workshop date(s) & time(s): 
Friday, October 21, 2011 - 15:00 - Sunday, October 23, 2011 - 15:00
First aid training for protest situations

This ~20 hour course is designed to provide the participants with basic first aid skills, as well as specialized skills focused on protest situations.

Skills taught are patient assessment, treatment for wounds, head/neck injuries, illnesses/allergic reactions, heat and cold concerns, chemical burns, "less lethal" weapons injuries, when to seek higher medical care, and general preparedness for changing or unpredictable situations.

Street Medicine is not only for protesters: the course is designed to empower participants to take an active role in keeping themselves and their communities healthy and safe, while reducing their dependence on industrialized medical systems that are often inaccessible or hostile to many people.

Facilitator's experience: 
I have RN, EMT, and NRP certifications, as well as experience in protest situations from hunger strikes to RNC/DNC demonstrations.

Basic Bike Maintenance at Sibley Bike Depot (November)

This class is designed as a complete introduction to the basics of maintaining your bicycle yourself. Learning to fix your own bike can save you money, ensure access to reliable transportation, and be a rewarding personal experience to understand how your vehicle functions. Participants aren’t expected to know anything beforehand – the only thing you need to bring is your lovely selves, your bike if you want, and a creative desire to learn!

In addition to providing technical explanations and building mechanical knowledge and confidence, this class will attempt to provide a basic overview of the role of community bike shops throughout the country and world, as we work to build sustainable transportation movements locally and globally.

Please Note we will skip Thanksgiving. So we will have three classes skip a week and finish on the first of December

DIY Screenprinting with Living Proof Print Collective

This two day workshop will serve as a basic introduction to the the medium of screenprinting with a focus on do-it-yourself methods. Day 1 we will introduce the process and prepare screens for printing and day 2 we will print. Each participant will have the opportunity to create and print their own 1-color print on paper or fabric. We believe printmaking can be a medium for anyone to speak their mind and tell their stories and we want to help you do this!

We will cover basic design, emulsion, drawing directly on the screen, equipment basics, shop setup, the printing process, inks, what you can print on, and more.

We are definitely open to participant input on class structure, though we will be cramming a ton into a short period of time so it would be great to hear from you with any questions or hopes before the actual workshop begins. We will be sending out some prep materials before the workshop and we encourage you to check these out to be more prepared for class when it starts.

IMPORTANT: Due to space constraints we are limiting sign up to only 5 people. PLEASE only sign up if you can attend both days of the workshop.

We are planning to offer these again in the future so just let us know if you're interested in future workshops and we'll keep you in the loop.

Class will meet Sunday, November 13th, 1-4pm and Monday, November 14th, 7-10pm.

Facilitator's experience: 
Facilitators (two for each class) are all independent artists who incorporate screenprinting into their artistic practice. We believe in screenprinting as a powerful personal and political tool. We founded Living Proof Print Collective (http://wehavelivingproof.wordpress.com/) to create a space where we could create our own artwork and help provide access and resources to various community members and groups. Over the last year we have put together a screenprinting shop with capacity to teach workshops in and out of shop, and provide space for multiple practicing artists, all on a very tight budget.

World War II: A Rich Source of Metaphor for our Time

PLEASE CALL RAY IF YOU WANT TO TAKE THIS CLASS - 651-714-0288

RAY will cancel the class if he does not hear from anyone by Thursday.

At this point in US History, World War II can almost seem like it is a forgotten war. What lessons and understandings might we reach by looking back onto many of the peculiarities, ideas, and stories from the time? This class will delve further into the metaphor that Nazism and the Third Reich offers us as a means to understand the present political situation in the US and the world. NOTE: If you would like to get in touch with Ray please call him.

The Movies: Cultural Enrichment or Co-Dependence?

PLEASE CALL RAY IF YOU WANT TO TAKE THIS CLASS - 651-714-0288

RAY will cancel the class if he does not hear from anyone by Monday.

Do movies enrich us culturally or have they become an addiction because we simply don't want tell our own stories anymore and worse yet we don't even want to communicate with each-other? In this effort we will be examining such classics as the Devils General, and anti-war movie from the German point-of-view made in 1955 staring Kurt Jurgens. The Godfather, a movie in part made by Italians, it is the tragedy of the American tragedy in microcosm. There will be several other classics offered in this class, such To Have and Have Not starring Humpfrey Bogart and Lauren Bacal.

Facilitator's experience: 
I am a CoDirector at Second Foundation School & have been a part of the SFS community since 1986. I have been a parent since 1989 & fully embrace the concept of raising free children! I have or currently work with other youth-focused organizations including: District 202, YouthLink, East Side Arts Council, & St. Paul Parks Dept. I have a Masters Degree in Human Development: Educational Psychology & a BA in Holistic Education with a minor in Intermedia Arts. As a multi-disciplinary artist,I love to use creativity to encourage emotional expression & healthy communities. Radical parenting is hard work & community support is needed! RIVA Garcia is an intermedia artist, healer & community activist with many experiences in the realm of radical child rearing. Riva currently works for Sisters Camelot & is an active volunteer staff at Second Foundation School. Amoke Kubat Bio Amoke Awele Kubat is a northside Minneapolis resident that has been involved in empowering families since 1987. She is a teacher, artist and writer who partners with community artists, activists and organizations to bring African/African American culture through art, storytelling and education to women, as mothers and first teachers of their children. Amoke is the CEO and owner of Respondability, Inc the umbrella entity for the emerging YO MAMA – The Mothering Mothers Institute and Living Womb Ceremonies (for self discovery and healing through ritual). “YO MAMA is the child of all my life’s work”, Amoke says, “the mamas do all the foundational work for every human being. As a birth to five Early Childhood and K-12 Special Education teacher for almost 30 years, I see the crisis in our communities as a crisis of mothers. Our mothers are out sourced and under resourced, yet they are doing the most important work of all .”Mothers need to be healthy physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually in order to raise healthy children. YO MAMA helps with this revolution. In her recent work with The Family Academy, a partnership of Minneapolis Public schools, Youth Coordinating Board and now, NAZ (Northside Achievement Zone), I have worked with many families. These families were African Americans, West and East Africans (Liberians and Somali), Latinos, and Europeans. “ I do experiential learning groups. In teaching about creativity in young children, discovered how empowering art and creative expression was for the mothers. It was the mothers who wanted to continue to meet and make art together. In September 2010, Amoke’ piloted the Art of Mothering Workshop, a drop in art workshop for women, as mothers. Mothers met for 10 weeks. The Art of Mothering has simple ground rules; no children allowed, it is a space to create and explore our legacies as women and mothers. Ten women participated. One woman created a body of sellable artwork. “We came together, doing woman’s work, sewing, mending, crocheting and added painting, drawings, mask making, and voice and movement”. Having no budget, Amoke’ approached Juxtaposition Arts for space at a minimal cost, begged and borrowed art supplies and gained the support of local artists to come in as guest artists and facilitators.
