This Saturday, April 25th at 7p, at Salsa Con Todo Dance Studio, hear a concert by VA, for free.  However, VA does ask their fans and supporters to join in their Indigogo fundraiser to pay for recording an album.

This will be the first album for the five-piece World-America folk band, provided they get the support for their fundraising campaign.  Following their first sold out performance, VA has reason to hope for fans to support this blending of melody, dance and culture in rhythm.  Self-realization and unity through music is the message of VA, and they promise a night to remember.

For more information on the Indiegogo campaign, and what this band hopes to accomplish with the money raised from this free concert, visit www.indiegogo.com/projects/va-recording-project

On Thursday, April 23rd, from 6p – 9p, and Saturday, August 25th, from Noon – 2p, join ‘Re-form – Transform – Collaborate!’ workshops led by Carl Smool.  This is a call to re-energize and come together on a celebration of creative energy!  Imagine working with people on a project larger than the sum of its parts – like the Fremont Arts Council Solstice Parade.

Let’s create a multi-ensemble; a moving, theatrical ‘patchwork’ of issues, ideas and concerns about the environmental, economic, social and political health of our fragile world.

Why collaborate?  Bridge the divide between progressive issues to build a broad, democratic movement.  The potential of a creatively interconnected culture is limitless.  Bring new stories that enable us to see a better way to live on the planet, and help create a clear vision of how to get there.  This is where culture excels; art has the ability to expand people’s imaginations, lift spirits and bring people together.

The 2015 Solstice Parade offers an excellent opportunity to manifest this vision.  Bring your ideas!  Bring your sense of humor, and your outrage, to get together as a group of ensembles working synergistically to create a spectacular theatrical experience, a passion play of the street, where every person has a creative role to play.

At these initial workshop meetings, everyone will gather to begin the creative mash-up and sharing of design ideas that make the Solstice Parade the spectacle audience have come to enjoy.

For more information, contact parade@fremontartscouncil.org  The Fremont Arts Council, a 501(c)3 organization, produces the Solstice Parade each year on the Saturday closest to the summer solstice (this year – June 20th).

Honor Veterans In Fremont Next Saturday On ANZAC Day

Kirby Lindsay Laney

500pxANZACDayPosterApr15On Saturday, April 25th, from 2p – 5p, at LTD Bar + Grill, help Fremont honor veterans at our own kind of celebration.  This year is the 100th anniversary of the first military action by the ANZAC (Australia & New Zealand Army Corps) at Gallipoli, in World War I.  Come celebrate the noble sacrifice of the thousands that died at Gallipoli, and all those who have fought for our right to freedom.

In a tradition that feels very Fremont, but is actually Australian, drink a pint, have an ANZAC biscuit, hear history from a resident Aussie expert, learn about ways to help American veterans in emergencies – and maybe watch some Aussie Rules Football.  (Go Hawks!)

Stay for a minute or the whole afternoon!  This is a 21+ only event, all the beer is pay-as-you-go, but stop by for free and learn more about ANZAC Day and helping American veterans.  For more information on how Fremont will honor its veterans, contact aussie@fremocentrist.com or see the Facebook event page.
