Chair, Steering Committee
Downtown Voices Coalition
Dear friends and supporters of Downtown Voices Coalition:
DVC had issues with trying to secure a date with our most interested venue for our 10th Anniversary Celebration and as the dates continued to conflict, our Steering Committee decided to postpone until Fall 2014.
Expect news over the summer as we get our event better planned and decide on the perfect place and date. Thanks for signing up, and we’ll keep you informed via the usual email list for more information. Our May meeting is still cancelled but we will have our next General Meeting Saturday, June 14.
Finally, please continue to send your pictures of DVC events and activities over the past decade to firstname.lastname@example.org! These can include any pictures you have from DVC events or DVC’s participation at other events; downtown buildings that have been saved, rehabilitated, or lost; and the things you love or don’t love about downtown Phoenix.
Thanks for all you do for downtown Phoenix,
Edward C.H. Jensen
Secretary, Steering Committee
on behalf of the DVC Steering Committee
The Holiness Project will be presented at The Icehouse Phoenix located at 429 W Jackson St., Phoenix, AZ, 85003 on Saturday, May 3rd from 7:00 to 9:30pm with reception immediately following. Featuring performances from local artists Taran Emmert, Patrick Michael Finn, Jake Friedman and Four Chambers Press, Heather Lee Harper, Keith Kelly, Jeanette LeBlanc, Akiva Yael, Ashley Oakley, John Elliott Oyzon, Erin Schaad, Chris Danowski, Melissa Tramuta, Jane Ysadora, and Cassandra Wallick; with visual art from Joshua T. Ruth, Jillian Sinclair, Chanelle Sinclair, and Indiana Nelson. Cuisine by 24 Carrots.
The Holiness Project is a multimedia performance event and art show exploring the intersection of the sacred and the mundane. What does holiness mean on the most personal level? What happens when the ordinary objects of our bodies, lives, minds and hearts cross paths with something greater? The Holiness Project explores these questions in an immersive/interactive evening of film, dance, performance art, poetry, music, and kirtan.
Doors at 6:30. Performance promptly at 7:00pm. Admission is $11, no one turned away. For more information, contact Jane Ysadora at email@example.com.
Watch LIVE here from 2:00pm as City Council District 8 candidate Kate Gallego joins us in conversation.
