This Month's Speakers Paul Cienfuegos Community Rights PDX Our mission is to reclaim from corporations the Constitutional rights of people. We exercise our right of local self-government to protect the health, welfare, and dignity of our citizens, our commons, and our future generations. Mykle Hansen Famous Author Mykle Hansen Has Things To Say Mykle Hansen will hold forth with reflections on recent adventures and projects that he has survived. Ním Wunnan Air Business -- Shared concepts in contemporary art and web development I produce websites for a living, but my only degree is in painting. These two types of work often fight for space in my brain, but I keep discovering ways that they share conceptual roots. I'm developing a class that uses these shared concepts as keys for artists to learn practical web development skills and for engineers to learn how to engage with contemporary art. We'll also explore the differences betweeen the way that the two disciplines process and transmit information as a way to discuss big ideas about work, perception, and the production of new ideas. This is still in the research stage, so I will be calling for volunteers and suggestions. More TBA http://www.facebook.com/events/217632668423492/
