Long Story Short: “Bad Advice”

Join us for So Say We All’s open-to-everyone storytelling show. We invite you to come and tell a 5-minute story without notes on a changing monthly theme. Doors open at 7, storytelling begins at 7:30.

This month: we’re talking about all the bad advice we were given that we either had to unlearn or were thankful we didn’t listen to. Or, if you were the advice giver, tell us about when you realized you were full of it. Any other interpretation on the theme is welcome, just get your butts in the chairs!

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: “Facing Your Fears”

GreenRoom

Nothing gets our hearts pounding quite like the moments when we face the things we fear the most. How we deal with our fears can shape our lives and define our identities.

What is the story of how you confronted fear in the past? Did your heart swell with pride when you stood tall and stared down your fear? Or did you tuck your tail between your legs and slump back into another cycle of shame and regret?

And most importantly, how do we write about it?

Greenroom Writers Workshop: “History Repeating”

February’s free writers workshop focuses on the phenomenon of history coming back to haunt us. Are you watching in horror as you become your parents? Are you struck by a sense of deja vu? Are you fascinated or obsessed with recurring themes in your life? Well then this is the writing session for you. All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again, but only on Thursday Feb 2nd will we be writing about it. Come for in-class generative writing and discussion or bring in a piece on theme to have us workshop with you.

Call for proposals: Hell House

Call for Proposals
HELL HOUSE

“A Hell House is a haunted attraction operated on the days preceding Halloween by certain American fundamentalist churches. A hell house, like a conventional haunted house, uses actors and gruesome exhibits in an attempt to frighten attendees. Unlike a traditional haunted house, a Hell House focuses on sin, its horrific effects, and fate of unrepentant sinners in the afterlife.” – Wikipedia

On Saturday, October 29, Space 4 Art and So Say We All will co-host an artistic, alternative, and possibly satyrical version of a Hell House in the 5000
square-foot lot adjacent to the Space 4 Art stage. We are looking for eight brilliant proposals to fill eight separate 8-foot wooden cubes
with exhibits, performances, and/or fine art installations that comment on contemporary manifestations of “sin” in dark, humorous, terrifying,
grotesque, entertaining, innovative, or shocking ways.

On the same night, Space 4 Art will present an opening reception for artist Brianna Rigg, music from Mr. Tube and the Flying Objects, and
35 open studios.

If you are interested in participating, please submit a proposal including a description of your idea, a little about yourself (bio, cv, website), your contact information, and supporting documents (examples, photos, videos, sketches, links, etc…)

If your proposal is accepted, you will be assigned an empty cube consisting of a wooden frame with four open sides, an open top, and access to electricity. However, if you desire, a wooden floor or ceiling can be provided.  Any other structural elements will be your responsibility.

Email proposals to submissions@sdspace4art.org

IMPORTANT DATES:
September 23    Call for Proposals Issued
October 7       Submissions Deadline
October 12      Artists Notified
October 21      Artists May Begin Installing

SSWA Receives Grant from Mason-Hirst Foundation for workshops at Father Joe’s Village

7/28/2011

San Diego, CA

For immediate release:

So Say We All is very honored to announce the launch of its new education outreach program in storytelling for both teens and adults at Father Joe’s Village, made possible through the generosity of the Mason-Hirst Foundation and Joanna Hirst. Education Outreach Director Stacy Dyson and Executive Director Justin Hudnall will lead workshops among the teenage children of long-term residents at The Village as well as with adults through the Health and Wellness program, leading up to a joint showcase at The Space 4 Art in August.

It has been So Say We All’s goal since its inception to bring its mission of fostering self-expression to communities underrepresented in the mainstream media. We look upon this joint venture with St. Vincent de Paul as a monumental step towards making that a reality, and we are deeply grateful for the patronage that has made it possible.

A new arts collaboration

SSWA Executive Director, Justin Hudnall

Space 4 Art is making room for a new collaborator, So Say We All.

In an email interview, So Say We All executive director Justin Hudnall said Space 4 Art has invited his storytelling and narrative arts and education nonprofit to curate some events in their big, beautiful East Village arts building.

“It is a very exciting era we’re moving into as an organization,” Hudnall wrote.

I asked Hudnall to tell us more about what we can expect from the new connection between So Say We All and Space 4 Art.
