Got children and don’t know what to do with them? Take ’em to the Watermill Center tomorrow, Saturday, January 28, for the annual Family Day festivities from 1 to 4 p.m.
Pop in and enjoy an afternoon of music and movement workshops with current and past Artists-in-Residence Kate Eberstadt, Brune Charvin, and Khesrau Behroz of The Hutto Project and Matty Davis of BOOMERANG.
While you’re there, check out the collaboration of filmmaker Brune Charvin, writer Khesrau Behroz, and composer Kate Eberstadt on The Hutto Project, a music and performance education program for displaced children living within a refugee camp in Berlin. Contributing to the project, 25 students came together from Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Palestine, and Moldova and created original choral and performance works. On Family Day @ WMC, the artists invite you to join their classroom where they will replicate the same choral & movement exercises, share their experiences, and lead participants in reflection.
Also on Saturday — The Bridgehampton Child Care & Recreational Center is calling all teens and parents for an Open House on Saturday, January 28, from 4 to 6 p.m. Stop by The Center in The Studio at 551 Sag Harbor Turnpike to learn more.
And — Did you know that the Neo-Political Cowgirls are offering the Stacey Fuller Cohn Scholarship? Yep. Cool. Named for her memory by her family, this very special opportunity is a full scholarship and will be gifted to a local deserving girl. It will be decided upon by NPC’s board and local educators, and will be offered at each workshop– which occur up to five times a year.
Stacey Fuller Cohn was a mother to two young children and a beloved wife when she lost her fight against colon cancer in August of 2016. Through this scholarship, NPC will celebrate Stacey’s love of the arts, her family, and her life’s work while encouraging a local girl to find her own expressive voice and authentically share her talents with her own community. NPC is honored to present this opportunity in Stacey’s name.
Local educators are welcome to submit suggested scholar names to email@example.com. We ask that scholarship girls be aged 8-12, have financial constraints, be “at-risk,” have lost a parent OR be dealing with other personal struggles and be in a position of need for emotional support, friendship and leadership – building.
Oooh, and check out this cool “Page to Stage” program starting on Monday at Guild Hall, in collaboration with Our Fabulous Variety Show.
Lastly — Applications are DUE on Monday for the Guild Hall of East Hampton’s Teen Arts Council. Want to join? Here are the details:
The council will provide 10 local teenagers from 14 to 18 years the opportunity to work for pay at Guild Hall as content producers, curators, and programmers from March 7 through June 6. The program is modeled after the very successful Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council, which was the prototype for Teen Arts Councils around the country.
Through the Guild Hall Teen Arts Council, East End teens will work collaboratively with their peers and Guild Hall staff to create fresh programming that is directly reflective of their generation while gaining important work experience. GHTAC projects may include creating programming such as play readings, fashion shows, battles of the bands, and movie nights to appeal to teens. The council members also participate in Guild Hall events such as the Student Arts Festival, artXchange, and Guild Gatherings. The GHTAC meet from 3:30 to 5:30PM on the first and third Tuesday of the month between March 7 and June 6 at Guild Hall with Corey Jane Cardoso, Teen Arts Council Coordinator. TAC members are expected to attend all meetings, participate in programs generated by the group, and volunteer at one or more Guild Hall events, accounting for two hours a week with the possibility of additional hours based upon the projects generated.
