Nonviolent Communication Presentation-International Month of Peace

Ambassadors for Peace Association of Oregon* Invites you to a presentation: Creating Peace with Empathy and Understanding. Kathy Masarie MD and Jody Bellant Scheer, MD will introduce compassionate communication, a powerful tool for creating the quality of communication, trust, respect and cooperation in your relationships with others and with yourself. It is based on the premise that feelings and needs are at the core of all human behavior, which allows one to connect with empathy with others, no matter what their behaviors look like. This approach, based on Nonviolent Communication by Marshall Rosenberg, can bring a sense of peace and calmness in our lives that we all long for.

Reuse Art! SCRAP Re:Vision Gallery Presents: Masks of Incognito

25 artists create masks from reclaimed materials in conjunction with the School and Community Reuse Action Project's annual ‘Incognito’ masquerade gala.

 

Masks of Incognito showcases the innovation and variety inspired by reclaimed and recycled materials. 25 artists have transformed discarded materials (such as leather scraps, zippers, milk jugs, vintage piano keys and clock parts) into masks to transfigure the face and character. The masks will be on display in Re:Vision Gallery in October, and then auctioned at SCRAP’s ‘Incognito’ masquerade ball at the Oregon Zoo on October 28th. All artists have donated their masks to SCRAP.
