SI OUTLOUD: "HOW THE OTHER HALF LIVES"
A spoken word performance with music, inspired by Jacob Riis’ pioneering journalism.
    Staten Island OutLOUD hosts this special event on How the Other Half Lives, the ground-breaking work by Jacob Riis, 19th century photo-journalist and social activist.  Riis was among the first to photograph life on the streets of NYC's Lower East Side, as many of our forebears came to the US to build new lives, and to help build the nation.
   Music of the era performed live by special guests Elle La Forge, Rob Landsman & Rich Barbera.
   Riis' book combined photography with a compelling narrative about the brutal challenges that hard-working people, especially new Americans, overcame to survive in New York City.
   How the Other Half Lives helped to raise awareness of urban housing and public health issues.  Its publication helped to bring about reform in fire safety, fair housing, and child labor, among other important reforms.

We are allowing ourselves to stretch, looking to connect more deeply with the city we love.

ASTROLOGY:RETURN OF THE SIXTIES
From the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, we are within the threshold of that change, an astrological territory which resembles strongly the configuration present in the 1960's and so suggests related revolutions in consciousness and society here on the surface of our Mother Earth. Freedom and the People's voice. France (Yellow Vests), UK (Extinction Rebellion), USA (the new Congressional powerhouses, the Sunrise Movement), the Venezuela communes... the list goes on.

Astrologers participating include ANTHONY HUNTER, MERRI AXINN, TAMARA WINDHAM, as well as other interested astrologer friends, all invited to participate in this conversation about our current adventure in this solar neighborhood.

3pm AUTHOR: TOMMY LEVRIER "TWO FROM TEXAS"
  
Local author, "disarmingly talented Tommy LeVrier has been compared to any number of the Southern Writers, individuals like Carson McCullers, Flannery O'Connor, and just about every one in between. Like the others in this unique American tradition, his work captures evocatively the local color, earthiness, and sensibility of the land and its people.
  "In this little collection of short stories, Tommy LeVrier makes things beautiful out of stuff easily overlooked, serving up a snapshot of life in rural East Texas and turning it into art."

IRISH TRAD SEISIUN - Founded by local favorites, Linda Hickman, Douglas Barr, and Bob Wright, and managed by Staten Island Arts Folklife, the Staten Island Seisiún offers musicians and music lovers an afternoon of music and shared camaraderie onstage and off. As per tradition, these open sessions are informal gatherings dedicated to the practice and performance of Irish traditional music unlike an ordinary concert. The Staten Island Seisiún brings together Staten Island’s own with great practitioners of traditional Irish music from the other boroughs and New Jersey, and is open to musicians of all levels and ages. All are invited to bring their own instruments and join in to expand repertoire and technique.

Presented by Staten Island Arts!
