Workshops/Master Classes

Velocity Workshops + Master Classes

WORKSHOP SERIES: Contact Improv Boot Camp (8-week series)
SATS AUG 26 – OCT 14 / 2-5 PM
Velocity Kawasaki and Steward Studios 1621 12th Ave
Studio Current (OCT 7) 1100 E Pike St
REGISTER $140 full series / $20 drop-in

The purpose of this course is to become better dancers through rigorous physical training for contact improvisation.  By systematic training in classical CI skills (rolling point of contact, crescent rolls, spiral rolls, lifts mechanics, descent pathways, etc.), we will open up new dimensions in our dancing, inviting more possibilities, surprises, and fun.  In addition, we will explore promising new ideas for contact improvisation inspired by aikido and other martial arts. 

The course will be suitable for practitioners of all skill levels, although it is expected that participants will have some previous experience with contact.  Each session will consist of a two-hour class followed by a one-hour open jam (for the participants only) in which we will apply and integrate what we have learned each day.  The culmination will be an open showing at Velocity to present the results of our work.

All teaching artists are volunteers. $3-$5 donations for their support are much appreciated. More information on Facebook!

4culture seeks video artworks for public display

e4c is our storefront gallery for media art, which offers artists an opportunity to present work, while enlivening our urban core.

Four screens, adjacent to Gallery4Culture, are visible to the public from Prefontaine Place South, a busy thoroughfare, with more than 20,000 people traveling by on foot, car, bike, or bus each day.

Works are displayed in rotation during presentation hours, generally, 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily.

4Culture is seeking electronic artworks for e4c. Up to twelve artists will be selected to present from one (1) to three (3) artwork(s) based on completed or proposed media work, for a period of up to one year. Media artists working in all genres are encouraged to apply. Due to the transitory nature of the audience, works up to 5 minutes are desired. Additionally, because of the urban setting and sounds of the street, artworks should not be highly dependent upon sound.

Spacefinder Seattle

Spacefinder Seattle is a matchmaking tool for artists and artspaces.

Artists: Whether you’re looking for creative maker-spaces such as rehearsal rooms or painting studios, or presentation spaces such as black-box theaters or galleries, or event spaces, or culinary art space, or meeting space, or classrooms, or even raw warehouses or empty storefronts, then you’ve come to the right place.

Venues: Whether you’re full to capacity with rentals and simply want to market your venue for future use, or you’re looking for a new audience of artists and organizations who may not yet know about your spaces, you’ve come to the right place.

Spacefinder Seattle is a database of every rental space in the region (that we know of) that’s available to artists and arts & cultural organizations. It’s a way to discover spaces that might not already be on your radar, it’s a way to cross-pollinate art disciplines (maybe the most appropriate rehearsal space for your project is an artist’s studio?), and it’s a way to help grease the wheels of our regional artspace marketplace.
