In Her Shoes (show by Infinite Variety Productions)

Over 50 years ago, thousands of young American women went to Vietnam to serve their country during the war. Infinite Variety Productions interviewed five of these women- two military officers, three civilian employees, all volunteers. Hearing their poignant, horrific, funny, and endearing memories, we set out to tell the often unknown, but extremely timely story showing the human side of war. Through a script created directly from the oral histories with an innovative set using five blocks evolving into bunkers, rooftops, military vehicles and more, join IVP as we journey through the lives of these women.

 

All the proceeds from the event will go to WOSL- Women’s Overseas Service League – a national organization for women who have served overseas in or with the Armed Forces. 

 

Post show there will be a talk back with Judy Jenkins Gaudino.

Ms.Jenkins Gaudino served in Vietnam for 3 years in the army special services.

Meet Artist Financial Support Group

Meet Artist Financial Support Group

The Artists Financial Support Group seeks to: Educate student and professional artists on financial self-advocacy, Advocate legislative and institutional change in the cost of artist education, and Innovate new ways to manage student loan debt and to budget on an erratic income."

In the fall of 2010, several alumni of the NYU Graduate Acting Program met in New York. After graduating from one of the foremost artistic training programs in the country, we found ourselves working in the arts, and yet struggling with debt and student loans. We were beginning to realize that we might not be able to afford to be artists, simply because we had gone to school to be artists. Attempting to leave shame and panic aside, we started the Artists Financial Support Group (AFSG). We began to write a book about student loans, and carefully prepared a workshop for the next NYU graduating class. Our goal was to share with those students everything we wished someone had told us when we finished graduate school. We did just that in May of 2011 when we gave our first workshop at NYU. The AFSG has since led workshops at NYU Grad Acting, NYU Grad Design for Stage and Film, Yale School of Drama, Juilliard, The Actors Fund, The SAG-AFTRA Foundation, SUNY Purchase, and Ithaca College, among many others.

Whether you're a writer, dancer, actor, composer, singer, designer, director, or artist of any medium, you are capable of taking control of your finances. Add self-discipline and a desire for financial improvement with a freelancer's tenacity and an artist's creativity, and a career in the arts is possible. But, it can't be done without taking ownership of your financial education and responsibility for your financial life. Get inspired to take control of your finances through this workshop! Presented by the Artists Financial Support Group.

Support. Period.

Support. Period.

On the eve of the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump being elected president, will you be experiencing election dejection? Will you want to do something active in support of a good cause to avoid despair? Will you want to hang out with people who feel the same way? 

Then come to SUPPPORT. PERIOD. at the Artist Co-op! We will raise money for and write thank-you cards to the employees of a local Planned Parenthood. We will collect feminine hygiene products for a local women's homeless shelter. We will write to our representatives about the tampon tax, the major recent cuts to teen pregnancy prevention initiatives and birth control coverage, changes to sexual assault protections and college campuses, and any other issues related to Reproductive Justice that you feel passionate about. 

LIVE MUSIC! DRINKS! FOOD! MUTUAL SUPPORT! 

AND . . . . . . . . . TAMPONS! 

The goal of the night is to create a mountain of tampons and sanitary napkins - a veritable Mount Tamponius - a mountain that reaches to the ceiling with tampons and napkins! Please bring in a package to add to the mountain--who knows how high it will go!
