Calendar of Events

Past Events:

Sunday September 14th, 2pm-5pm: Making Art from the Arts with The Resource Exchange!

Want to see examples of how local projects (including this Wetlands installation) make art from the arts by creating with materials salvaged from local theatre and film sets? Have a show in the Fringe or work for a local theatre company, and want to design, build, and prop greener sets? Looking for an alternative to landfill for your set materials after the curtain closes? 
Join The Resource Exchange aboard Wetlands to learn more about creative reuse and recycling within Philadelphia's Theatre Community…and beyond!

Saturday, September 13th, at 12pm: Phickle: Demo Fermentation Class.

For millennia (that’s right!) humans have pickled vegetables using only the microbes that live in the soil and on the surface of those vegetables. Want to learn how to harness the power of bacteria to make nearly any vegetable into a truly healthful, probiotic living pickle with no hot stove required? Join Amanda Feifer, author of fermentation blog Phickle and the upcoming vegetable fermentation cookbook (Fair Winds Press 2015), as she helps you learn to love your bacteria and eat them too. You don’t need heat or vinegar, but a love for things that taste amazing is required!

September 7: From 1-2pm, Alison Gillespie, author of Hives in the City will do a reading of her acclaimed book on urban beekeeping, followed by a Q&A.
