Midday Toastmasters Meeting
Calendar: Local Calendar

13 Aug 2008
At Toastmasters, members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. A typical Toastmasters club is made up of 10 to 30 people who meet once a week for about an hour. Each meeting gives everyone an opportunity to practice conducting meetings, giving impromptu speeches, presenting prepared speeches, and offering constructive evaluation. We meet on the University Of Pittsburgh's campus in L-5 Clapp Hall (Lowy Room), on the corner of Fifth and Tennyson Avenue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, across from the Cathedral of Learning. We meet from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. every Wednesday of each month.

MIXED UP WEDNESDAYS
Calendar: Local Calendar

13 Aug 2008
"Mixed up Wednesdays" takes place each Wednesday night at Lava Lounge located at 2204 East Carson Street on Pittsburgh's South Side. Resident DJ Ian Friend and special guests Adammmm and Sasqautch of MFPA fame spin classic and current underground dance music, old skool hip hop, 80's new wave and much more. The event runs from 10p.m. to 2a.m. with no cover, drink specials and 50 wings from the Double Wide Grill.
It's hard not get into the groove with the likes of Brazil's own CSS & Bonde Do Role blasting through the speakers. The dj's could at that point twist and turn you directly to france by spinning some of their current underground craze by the likes of Yelle, Ca$hmere or SebastiAn.
It's hard to know where else they will take you with the every growing collection of music and tracks that were purchased and debuted mere hours before the start of the event. One thing is for sure: Mixed Up Wednesdays is not for the faint heart but the party animals.

LEMURtron is a modern musical extravaganza like you've never seen or heard before! Combining common and unusual musical instruments with robotic technology, the exhibit features a futuristic 'band' of music makers with members that include GuitarBot, ModBots and the infamous Ill-Tempered Clangier. YOU "play" the "Bots" by moving and dancing on the lighted dance floor, making your own concert of techno music.
LEMURtron is created by LEMUR (League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots), a Brooklyn, NY-based group of artists and technologists creating exotic, sculptural musical instruments which integrate robotic technology. LEMUR was founded by Eric Singer in 2000.

Heinz Endowments/Pittsburgh 250/Artist-YouthPlaces Project Grants
As part of a $1 million initiative to celebrate Pittsburgh’s 250th birthday, project curator, Tom Sokolowski, director of The Andy Warhol Museum, has crafted a partnership between area artists to work with the YouthPlaces organization.
Artists are invited to make an application for a grant to work with the YouthPlaces organization in City of Pittsburgh neighborhoods with underserved youth ages 12 through 18. Ten grants of $5,000 will be awarded to ten artists. Artists are defined as visual artists, dancers, choreographers, actors, musicians, designers, and fashion designers. Programming will take place during non-school and weekend hours within cultural or community organizations. Qualifications include the following: must be interested in CALL FOR ARTISTS working with teenagers in a community-based setting and be comfortable in culturally distinct environments; must be able to develop and implement in-depth arts experiences/programming working with the staff of YouthPlaces; must obtain ACT 33/34 clearances; must be willing to build a strong holistic approach to working with young people including building relationships within their communities.
Applications should include a professional resume and examples of artistic work (slides, tapes, and photographs of art works). Please do not send actual artworks. Please enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope for the return of materials. Further, the application should include a statement of no more than 500 words explaining why this grant is important to you, and how you feel this program would influence both your own art practice as well as stimulate and stretch the minds and talents of young people.
