  • April 2nd: Band 101: A Technical and Creative Toolbox with Georgianna Harris and Megan Denton of QORDS When we go see our favorite band in concert, we’re seeing the finished product of lots of hard work and knowledge.  In this workshop we’re demystifying the glamour of the rockstar and learning what really goes into those awesome performances. Participants will  be given an introductory course on the fundamentals of musicianship, the ins and outs of being in a band, and explore creative song writing processes, as well as engage in hands-on activities with drums, guitars, amps, mics, and other sound-making mediums.
  • April 16th: Podcasting and Interview Basics : Learn the art of interviewing and how to ask the right questions. We’ll also explore the ins and outs of creating a podcast, how to use a field recorder and practice interviewing each other using Elsewhere’s museum and our own stories as inspiration.
  • April 30: Vocal Improvisation Workshop with Quilla : Ever wanted to sing your heart out, but were too afraid? Join this safe space where everyone is welcome, whether you are a beginner singer, expert yodeler or anything in between. There are sounds within us all, just waiting to be released. Learn to unleash your inner beast! Drop beats, not bombs. Let your voice soar to new heights! Topics examined will include linguistics, poetry, traditional chanting techniques from around the world, beatboxing, and experimental group improv singing exercises.

5. An intimate evening of traditional foods with an untraditional telling of the Passover story across the museum’s three floors. Elsewhere’s Seder connects Jewish  liberation with historic and contemporary liberation texts. Excerpts include Bell Hooks, David Wojnarowicz, Baal Shem Tov, Malcolm X, Susannah Herschel, among others.
