Good Culture: Y2K Edition

Good Culture: Y2K Edition

2017 has been messy y’all. Is the world ending or mending? On December 14th, Good Culture celebrates the New Year by looking back with the Y2K EDITION.

The new millennium was a time when the fresh outlook, music, and fashion of the 90s came to a screeching halt. Or did it? We learned that, like any good boy band or girl group, when we stick together, we’re survivors. We keep on survivin.

So grab the red pill, forget the Matrix, and mess with this Good Culture! Get ur freak on with H.O.V.A. talk by Eli Marienthal, Usher-style moves and moods by Ezra Bristow (Myles), and an 8 Mile freestyle compliment battle featuring Aima the DreamerFrakAmani Johnson and AjGod. Then back that azz up with R&B and pop covers by host Jasmine Fuego and the Pop Up Band. But save the last dance for early 2000s club bangers care of DJ Wild Man. No scrubs. Just luv. Hope you’re ready for the next episode.

2000s l000ks encouraged.

More about the artists:

Ezra Bristow (Myles) is a a quintessential triple-threat creative. The Newark, New Jersey native is a self-taught choreographer, published illustrator, and internationally recognized spoken word artist. In his work we see the timeless, vibrant, sensuous, joyful spirit of Carnival tempered by the dark, somber, ephemeral and emotional gravity of life as a Diasporic descendant. Despite the apparent contradiction, Ezra discovers hope in the duality by embracing the beautiful, kinetic, progressive aspects of our selves and our nature.

Eli Marienthal is an actor, poet and performer from Berkeley, CA. A former Brave New Voices national slam champion, he started rocking stages with Youth Speaks in 1998, and has been sharing his words across the country ever since. Rooted in ritual, with a prayer for peace, his work is an invitation to rejoice, redeem and remember where we come from. He is a co-founder of Gentrifried Chicken, an experimental arts and entertainment platform that takes old familiar games and remixes them into live gameshow style events focused on the transmission of vital historical and geographic knowledge. As co-director of Back To Earth he guides ceremony and mindfulness-based wilderness programs for teenage boys, and teaches nature connection to school children throughout the Bay Area.

Jasmine Fuego is a singer, dancer and ARTivist deeply committed to creating art in service to justice, self empowerment and liberation. In 2014, she co-founded the Permaculture Action Network,an organization that bridges art and ecology through action, with a group of community organizers and environmental educators. During the school year she teaches mindfulness & emotional intelligence to K-12th graders in Richmond, Ca with the Mindful Life Project. She has hosted and curated spaces at events such as the North American Permaculture Convergence, Symbiosis Gathering and Oregon Eclipse 2017.

DJ Wild Man is a geographer, dancer, and DJ. He works across all parts of his craft to cultivate more harmonious relations between sound, bodies, and space in an urban setting. His favorite medium is dance music – from hip-hop and house to dancehall and disco – and he spins in deep gratitude and service to the sonic elders and innovators of soul, past and present. Check him out at https://soundcloud.com/wildwildman

Good Culture is a bi-monthly performing arts showcase and dance party that celebrates good music, good people, and good vibes in the East Bay. It’s curated by Jasmine Fuego (host) and Wild Man (resident DJ).

Women’s Leadership Lab
Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Women's Leadership Lab

Behind every successful woman, there is a tribe of successful women who have her back.

For the past 20 years, I have been living and breathing this truism.

My mother taught me, as her mother taught her, that women need women. So, I am creating a small, intimate group for women who are wanting support in taking on the leadership roles in their life. I’m calling it the Women’s Leadership Lab. Whatever you have going on in your life, bring it to the lab and we’ll work it out together.

I use an inclusive definition of “woman” where trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are female-identified are welcome in the Lab.

Leadership looks like different things to different women, just as no two women are alike. What we all do need, I have found, is support, compassion, empathy, accurate information and useful strategies available to us consistently.

The group will meet twice a month for three months. Once the group begins, no new people will be added. Each meeting will be 2 hours and here is the format:

The first hour, I will facilitate a group discussion based on material I have found to be super useful to me as a leader in many different communities and capacities. The materials may be an article, a podcast, a book. Everything I bring to the Lab will be intersectional, anti-racist and anti-misogynist. There will be exercises for sharing and learning about the other women in the group.

The second hour, I will work with individual women in front of the group on a current leadership challenge or opportunity they are experiencing in their lives. We will use the group’s intelligence to workshop it together along with my leadership exprience being in support of the process. I am planning on doing two of these each night, so that each participant will have a chance to get this type of focussed attention. We will support each woman though experiences of misogny, internalized sexism, agism, racism, homophobia, sexual harrassment, classism and social conditioning that expects women to always put other people’s needs, opinions and desires before her own.

Sound good? Register here: https://goo.gl/forms/wvouDJ9R8lWwobDo2

Want more details, keep reading…

In between meetings, there will be optional homework and readings, as well as a private facebook group moderated by me for mutual support. You will also choose an accountability/check in person to form a dynamic duo. My goal is to not replicate any of the other trainings I’ve seen that are geared toward women where it’s grossly sexist, overtly tied to capitalist exploitation and unconscious of both privilege and racism.

I want to keep the groups small, max 12 women. We will practice both receiving and being the kind of support we want to see in the world.

***Here’s where you get to choose which track you’ll be in***

Track A will meet every other Wednesday starting October 11

Track B will meet every other Wednesday starting on October 18

Each group will meet 6 times, going though December.

The cost for participating in the Women’s Leadership Lab is sliding scale donation between $250 and $450.

Again, seats will be limited. Register here:
