The hilarity kicks into high gear when four of her former students, who have strayed from the path of righteousness, arrive. “The Actor’s Nightmare” revolves around a non-actor who is mistaken for an understudy and is forced to perform in a play for which he doesn’t know any of the lines.

    “The Montpelier Police Department will be holding our next Coffee with a Cop event on Friday, 7 April 2017 from 5 – 6 PM at Cafe Anna at Vermont College of Fine Arts located at 36 College Street in Montpelier.

    What is “Coffee with a Cop” you ask?

    It’s a simple concept. Police and community members come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee.

    In thousands of cities and towns in all 50 states, and now many other countries, “Coffee with a Cop” has done wonders for community trust, police legitimacy, and partnership building.

    Community members come to a local “Coffee with a Cop” for a variety of reasons, but no matter why, they are likely to leave with a more positive impression of their local police department.
    One of the keys to “Coffee with a Cop’s” success is that it removes the physical barriers and crisis situations that routinely define interactions between law enforcement officials and community members. Instead it allows for relaxed, informal one-on-one interactions in a friendly atmosphere. This informal contact increases trust in police officers as individuals which is foundation to building partnerships and engaging in community problem solving.

    The theme of this year’s conference is “Romances in Middle-earth,” which range from “shipped” characters and bromances to the love of Beren and Lúthien — as well as the high romances of King Arthur and the Medieval age. Most conference papers will assume audience members are well familiar with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, though several will also deal with material from other of Tolkien’s works, such as The Silmarillion and The Children of Húrin. Papers will discuss everything from mysogyny, historical bias, and class structure, to swords and monsters. Even Beowulf is on the menu.

    The conference is open to the public, and is free for high-school and UVM students, $15 for other students, and $25 for all others.

    Toxic Whiteness Discussion Group 

    at the Peace & Justice Center, 60 Lake Street, Burlington. Each discussion group will begin with a different reading, video, or audio file that sets the tone for a facilitated discussion. It is harmful to racial justice work when white people’s emotional needs are prioritized over those of people of color in multi-racial spaces. This space is held specifically for white people, to help process how white supremacy culture is toxic to white communities and individuals. It seeks to help people who experience white privilege see and understand how undoing racism directly benefits them. The hope is that by having a separate space to process toxic whiteness, white people will be better able to allow for the emotional needs of people of color to take priority in multi-racial spaces. This is a monthly event held on the second Wednesday.

    at Saint Michael’s College, McCarthy Arts, 1 Winooski Park, Colchester. The Peace & Justice Center is excited to join the with St. Mike’s MOVE Program to bring this workshop to the school. Our Program Manager, Kyle Silliman-Smith, will give a brief talk on the concept of white fragility and co-lead a discussion on how we can all, and white people in particular, strengthen our ability to notice racism in the world around us, and engage in conversations about race and racism within our communities. One of the biggest issues to consider when discussing race are strong visceral reactions to the conversation surrounding race and racial prejudice. Discussing these issues, particularly with white audiences, proves to be challenging due to the fact that the majority of white Americans have been intentionally uneducated about the complexities of racial and other social/religious injustices in our society. This lack of exposure has led discussions about race to be conflated with criticism on a person’s moral character rather than a criticism of racist policies. Strong emotional responses including cognitive dissonance or emotional incapacitation that can be expressed in anger, guilt/remorse, depression/sadness, disengagement and/or feelings of being attacked and victimized. White Fragility is a concept, developed by author and educator Dr. Robin DiAngelo and with the help and support of countless people of color.

    We’ll start each evening with a sing-along Song Circle using Rise Up Singing, the great collection of folk songs.  Then we’ll explore some circle singing:  lifting our voices in spontaneous harmony-rich songs.  We’ll sing renditions of both traditional songs and fresh brand new songs that we create together as we explore how to turn a simple melody into a living, changing, multi-layered song.  All voices and ages welcome.

    Heidi is a singer songwriter with a passion for sharing original compositions and folk songs inspired by and in service to community and the natural world.  She recently studied improvisation and circle singing with Bobby McFerrin and Rhiannon and is excited to keep exploring! Heidi has been leading acappella singing groups for over 10 years.  She currently leads the Plainfield Community Sing, teaches courses at the Summit School of Traditional Music and Culture, directs the Ollabelles, and is an instructor for Village Harmony.

      Wednesday, April 12 from 12-1pm 

      Toxic Whiteness Discussion Group 

      at the Peace & Justice Center, 60 Lake Street, Burlington. Each discussion group will begin with a different reading, video, or audio file that sets the tone for a facilitated discussion. It is harmful to racial justice work when white people’s emotional needs are prioritized over those of people of color in multi-racial spaces. This space is held specifically for white people, to help process how white supremacy culture is toxic to white communities and individuals. It seeks to help people who experience white privilege see and understand how undoing racism directly benefits them. The hope is that by having a separate space to process toxic whiteness, white people will be better able to allow for the emotional needs of people of color to take priority in multi-racial spaces. This is a monthly event held on the second Wednesday.

      Wednesday, April 12 from 6-7:30pm, White Fragility Talk 

      at Saint Michael’s College, McCarthy Arts, 1 Winooski Park, Colchester. The Peace & Justice Center is excited to join the with St. Mike’s MOVE Program to bring this workshop to the school. Our Program Manager, Kyle Silliman-Smith, will give a brief talk on the concept of white fragility and co-lead a discussion on how we can all, and white people in particular, strengthen our ability to notice racism in the world around us, and engage in conversations about race and racism within our communities. One of the biggest issues to consider when discussing race are strong visceral reactions to the conversation surrounding race and racial prejudice. Discussing these issues, particularly with white audiences, proves to be challenging due to the fact that the majority of white Americans have been intentionally uneducated about the complexities of racial and other social/religious injustices in our society. This lack of exposure has led discussions about race to be conflated with criticism on a person’s moral character rather than a criticism of racist policies. Strong emotional responses including cognitive dissonance or emotional incapacitation that can be expressed in anger, guilt/remorse, depression/sadness, disengagement and/or feelings of being attacked and victimized. White Fragility is a concept, developed by author and educator Dr. Robin DiAngelo and with the help and support of countless people of color.

      VCFA Graphic Design Public Lecture: Doubt, Delight, and Change
      Thursday, April 13, 6:30-7:30pm, Noble Lounge
      College Street, Montpelier
      Design as a Practice of Involvement: What roles can speculation, fiction, and critical reflection play in design? And in which directions must we expand classic design methodologies in order for it to be an agent of transparency or empowerment? Illustrated by a selection of works, Oliver Klimpel will share his thoughts and insights on how his approach in design has developed—starting from traditional design projects to current interventions and inquiries, for instance, into design as a means of institutional critique and a highlighter of cultural ambivalences.
      Oliver Klimpel is a designer based in London and Berlin.

    The second “AMP” evening in the series will feature Artist Clare Dolan, Musical Group Farm Song, Poet Kerrin McCadden and authentic Argentinian food by El Hornero on Thursday, April 27, 6:00 – 8:00p.m., at the River Arts Center in Morrisville.

    Artist Clare Dolan will present one of her new cantastorias, a performance form of picture-story recitation which involves sung narration to artistic pictograms. Dolan is a Nurse and Puppeteer whose enthusiasm for everyday life led to the creation of the Museum of Everyday Life in Glover.

    Farm Song is a group of farmers, homesteaders, and friends who love to sing. Their repertoire includes Czech sheep calling songs; Lithuanian ritual solstice ‘sutartines’—trance inducing rounds with odd rhythms and harmonies that bless the grasses and bees; shepherding and ploughing songs from the British folk tradition; Shape Note hymns composed by Vermont farmers at the turn of the 18th/19th century about death, harvest and hardship; work songs and harvest songs from Caucasus Georgia; and more.

    Poet Kerrin McCadden is the author of Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes, inaugural winner of the 2015 Vermont Book Award, as well as numerous other prestigious awards. Her poems have appeared in Best American Poetry, The Academy of American Poets’ Poem-a-Day series, Verse Daily, and in such journals as American Poetry Review, Beloit Poetry Journal, The Collagist, Green Mountains Review and Rattle. McCadden teaches English and Creative Writing at Montpelier High School and is the associate director of the Conference on Poetry and Teaching at The Frost Place. She lives in Montpelier, Vermont.

    An Elegant Evening of Chance

    Get ready to peel off your mud season uniform of Bogs and field jacket, and slip into something black, white, and fancy all over. On Saturday, April 29th at 5:00 PM at the Stowe Mountain Lodge, we’re celebrating the 28th annual Helen Day Art Center Gala, inspired by Truman Capote’s illustrious and decadent Black and White Ball.

    The gala is the premiere fundraiser in Stowe, showcasing the community’s love of the arts and sophisticated culture. We’ll continue our tradition of a live and silent auction offering sought-after items and exclusive experiences, in addition to our art auction, featuring renowned artists, some of whom who work closely with the Art Center, such as Idoline Duke, Dusty Boynton, Galen Cheney, and Dorothy Simpson Krause.

    In addition to complimentary drinks, hors d’oeuvres, a seated three-course meal, this year’s event will also include some exciting features: Sit down at a casino table to play your favorite Vegas-inspired games for a special prize. Dance to DJ Luis Calderin. Enjoy our renowned auctioneer, Gabriela Palmieri. Gabby is an independent art specialist and auctioneer specializing in Post War and Contemporary Art, with a career at Sotheby’s including Chairman, Contemporary Art, Americas. And join us in honoring three local leaders—Molly Davies, Milford Cushman, and Terri Gregory—who have played significant roles in making the Art Center what it is today.

    Of course, the gala’s not just about the partying. It’s also a top source of revenue for the Helen Day Art Center. Thanks to the income from successful events like this one, the organization can continue to offer free admission to its progressive, thematic, topical exhibitions. They can provide education packets and training sessions for grade-school teachers who bring their students into the Art Center. Funds from the gala also help offset the cost of the art education program, which offers classes like clay, digital photography, filmmaking, animation, and fashion design. Art is a core value of the Stowe community, and attending the gala is an opportunity to support HDAC—while having a blast at the same time.

    For more information, including the chance to check out the available artwork, or to purchase tickets ($125 each) please visit helenday.com or call (802) 253-8358.
