It’s hard to believe that it’s September already. I just wanted to let you all know that we’ll be doing the next MANIFEST Presents The Speakeasy this Saturday night, September 8th at The Camp House (
Williams St.). If you’re a poet, storyteller, or are
just looking for big fun, bring yourselves out. Doors open at 8 and we’ll get
rolling with the entertainment at 9. It’s a pay-what-you-want affair, so
feel free to contribute whatever you’d like.
Also, I’ll be showing a documentary called “Press Pause Play” on September 20th at The Hunter Art Museum. Here’s a bit about the film:
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world's most influential creators of the digital era.
Things will get underway at 6. We’ll show the film, and then have a panel to further discuss, and, hopefully, expound upon some of the ideas and questions that the documentary raises. General admission is $9.95 and free for members of the museum.
Happy Labor Day, and I hope to see you out this weekend. Also, if you have any questions about Saturday or the MANIFEST series, feel free to get back with me.
