moebypillow.jpgThe Glossary Link Alchemical Nursery Project announces a Trash Art Challenge.  The concept of the Trash Art Challenge is for local artists to take discarded and found objects to show how trash can be redesigned into works of art.

Participating artists’ works will be exhibited in the “Lead to Gold Alchemical Trash Art Show” from May 21st-27th at Spark Contemporary Art Space (1005 E. Fayette St, Syracuse) as well as in the lobby of the Palace Theater (2384 James St, Syracuse) on May 28th and 29th.

The May 21st showing at Spark is part of the Third Thursdays citywide arts open (see for more information).

The art will be auctioned off for the benefit of the Alchemical Nursery Project, during the International Social Action Film Festival at The Palace Theater in Eastwood on May 28 and 29, 6:30 – 9:00 pm.

Participating artists will be provided free tickets for both nights of the International Social Action Film Festival and be featured on The Alchemical Nursery Project website. In addition, a panel of judges will award the "Most Creative" entry with a cash prize equal to the amount bid for the artists's work.

The submission deadline for entries is May 11, 2009.  Artists should download the Trash Art Challenge Artists Agreement for participation info.

Come One Come All Alchemical Peasants of Upstate New York!!

April 17th, Thornden park Ampitheater, 4:00-7:00pm Native Edible Perennial Planting

Come to the second annual planting for the international day of peasant's struggle. Together we can create a different world, where food (and everything we need) is so abundant that none will be controlled by enforced scarcity. The seeds of this world will be planted and the park turned into a garden of Eden, bit by bit.

Come, learn about the forces that would control us: the IMF, World Bank, WTO, Monsanto, and others. Hear about their latest diabolical plans while you channel your anger into the construction of a food forest.

Hear about the brave warriors of Via Campesina, stalking the oppressors around the world, seizing land, and taking back the basic rights that we need to be free: land, water, seeds.

Spread the word, bring friends, tools, and native perrenial edibles to plant.

mobile_phone.jpgThe world of non-profits has been taken by storm through the latest flush of emerging technologies and uses related to cellphones and SMS text capabilities.  Cause mobilization, fundraising, data acquisition and news updates are just a few of the uses for mobile cell tech that can benefit non-profits.

Alchemical has just instituted a new Textmarks SMS subscription service that our members can sign up for to receive our latest event updates as they are unfolding.  Other people, who are not yet affiliated with Alchemical as members and who want to learn more, can send a text message to our service to receive information about our organization.  Just send a text to 41411 with the word ALCHEMICAL in the message field.  You will be subscribed to our updates and will receive relevant information about events that is timely and remindful if you haven't checked our webpage lately.

 For instance, When The International Social Justice Film Festival featuring the Trash Art Auction opens its doors in May, Alchemical will send out a text update reminding subscribers of the event dates, times, and other important info.   Alchemical will also be developing a mobile app (that's an application) using the Textmarks API so users can find eco-villages and Glossary Link Permaculture centers from their cell phones when they are traveling.  Anyone with coding experience who would like to help out would be appreciated.
