PROGRAMMING NEWS

Our Meat Meet series has begun like fireworks. We hosted an extaordinary inaugural event on December 27th with the incomparable RC Clarke, followed by inspiring performances from Dylan Burnett and Cynocephalic Saints. We had to cancel an outdoor film screening of How Tasty was my Little Frenchman (1971) due to rain but will reschedule it soon. All events (unless otherwise indicated) are still remote and broadcast live at twitch.tv/yeswecannibal

Our Meat Meet calendar is full well into April with too many exciting guests to name them all but we must make special mention that we’re thrilled to host hip-hop statesman Marcel P Black on Feb 28.

Also, our first gallery show will open Saturday Feb 20th with Los Angeles artists Marisa Marofske and Ellen Khansefid entitled The Sublime Directory. Stay tuned for details.

Our Anarchist Political Ecology (APE) Group sponsored with La Terre Institute is still going strong (by Zoom) every Sunday at 11 am and Liz’s Sensory Engagement Laboratory (SEL) will kick off on Thursday January 28th (by Zoom) at 7 pm.

Also, keep an eye out for our contribution on wild mushroom foraging in Lobelia Commons forthcoming Earthbound Almanac.

SUPPORTING US

We are still working on launching our Patreon which will feature full performance and interviews from all of our Meat Meet events, hopefully before the end of the month. Certain subscription levels will also include limited edition posters and possibly t-shirts. Others are welcome to buy these (as well as hand-saved seeds and other cool naturalist materials) from our Etsy store once it launches (also soon!). In the meantime, Venmo donations are always welcome towards our approximately $2000 monthly operating costs and T-Shirts and Hoodies are available through RedBubble.

Please consider supporting us!

GARDENING VOLUNTEERS

Also: we need volunteers to help with planning and implementing our small food forest on our 16th St Wall, planning and growing for our 2nd annual Freak Plant Fundraiser and possible another demo project and collaboration with Wonderground.

PARTICIPATION

Most importantly: we want to hear from you!

Do you have an idea for an event, reading group, performance, project, etc?

Reach out to us at meetmeat@yeswecannibal.org and let’s talk!

THANK YOU

Finally, thanks to Cindy B Wonderful fromĀ BR Locals Only on WHYR for her brief interview with us last week. Thanks to Acid Horizon Podcast for all sorts of good advice and good cheer. And huge thanks to all those who supported our difficult IndieGoGo campaign at the height of the pandemic!

Here’s to a healthier 2021 for all beings.
