National Veterans Art Museum Triennial Veteran Art Summit: On War & Survival

  • National Veterans Art Museum (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

With a focus on the visual, literary, performative and creative practices of veterans, the National Veterans Art Museum Triennial explores a century of war and survival while challenging the perception that war is something only those who have served in the military can comprehend.

Throughout history, art has provided a frame to create meaning out of the complicated experience of war, seek justice and imagine reconciliation. The NVAM Triennial draws on this history to connect today’s veteran artists with the history of veteran creative practices and their impact on society over the past century. The NVAM Triennial exhibition opening coincides with the Veteran Art Summit featuring a series of presentations, workshops, panels, and discussions on May 3–5 at the Chicago Cultural CenterNational Veterans Art Museum, and the DePaul Art Museum.

All the program and exhibition spaces are wheelchair accessible. The NVAM strives to make the NVAM Triennial and Veteran Art Summit as accessible as possible. Please contact Aaron Hughes <ahughes@nvam.org> if you have any specific needs.

Transport Chicago Conference 2019

8:00 AM08:00

Transport Chicago Conference 2019

The history of Transport Chicago dates back to 1986, when the first conference, then known as the Metropolitan Conference on Public Transportation Research (MCPTR), was held. The conference's founders recognized the importance of knowledge-sharing within the transportation community, and wanted to host an event that would be easily accessible for researchers and practitioners based in the Chicago area. Since its beginning, the conference has been organized by a volunteer committee.

The conference was sponsored by the University of Chicago from 1986 to 1988, and by the University of Illinois at Chicago from 1989 to 1992. The MCPTR was incorporated as a non-profit corporation in 1993, and has become financially self-sustaining. Over the years, the conference program has evolved to include an increasing number of practice-oriented presentations and coverage of a broader range of transport modes. The “Transport Chicago” name was adopted in 2000 to reflect the conference’s expansion in scope.

Six Corners Association will be taking part in the conference and presenting along the side of Active Transportation Alliance, Northwest Side Housing Center, and TransitCenter regarding our advocacy work for better bus services and getting people back on the bus.

Kundalini Yoga + Communi-Tea Time
May

1:00 PM13:00

Kundalini Yoga + Communi-Tea Time

Ready to try a different kind of yoga? Join us for a Kundalini Yoga Workshop. Known as the Yoga of Experience, Kundalini Yoga is a system of pressure and release. Each kriya (or set of movement) is like a recipe designed to have a specific impact on the physical and energetic body. Each person will have their own unique experience - as each person is walking in with their own unique energy. No previous experience required.

We'll have 90-minutes of movement and meditation. Students are invited to stay for an optional 30 minute tea time to learn more about this dynamic practice and share your individual experiences.

Elizabeth Bogart found Kundalini Yoga (or Kundalini Yoga first found her) when she was living in India in 2008. She practiced several different types of yoga, but it wasn't until she tried Kundalini that she felt "clean" after a class. It felt like brushing her teeth but for her brain. Her brain, body, and spirit felt sparkly, shiny, new, and oddly more whole.

It is her hope that each class offers an opportunity for students to clear away the static of everyday living and return to their true essence, so they can dive back into their lives feeling more whole, alive, and themselves.

She studied at the Kundalini Research Institute in Espanola, New Mexico. Elizabeth has studied with Gurmukh and is certified to teach Khalsa Way Prenatal Yoga, received her 200 RYT certification from Zen Yoga Garage, and has taught kids yoga for nearly five years. Once upon a time, she was a Special Education Teacher and the lessons learned in her first year of teaching still guide everything she does today.

No experience necessary. Mats and props provided by Wildlight Yoga, 4140 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Admission is $25 Pre-registration required. Members receive 10% discount. No refunds or credits.

Intro to Meditation

Intro to Meditation

“No matter which path you follow for meditation, the first and foremost task is to try to make the mind calm and quiet. If the mind is constantly roaming, if it falls victim to merciless thoughts, then progress will be hard to access. The mind has to be made calm and quiet so that when the light descends from above, you can be fully conscious of it. In your conscious observation and conscious acceptance of light, you will enter into a profound meditation and see the purification, transformation, and illumination of your life.”

– Sri Chinmoy

Do you want to start a meditation practice? Do you want to explore new ways to meditate and deepen your practice? Do you want to slow down and learn to deal with your daily stress? Do you want to know yourself more authentically, feel greater spaciousness and self-awareness, feel more real and alive?

Meditation is our attempt to discover our inner self, a place beyond the usual workings of the intellectual mind. When we experience real meditation we become aware of the infinite within and our own unexpected wealth of divine qualities like peace and inner joy.

Join Reiki Master/Teacher and yoga teacher Cassie for a 90 min workshop exploring how to jumpstart your own meditation practice. Class with include practicing what you have learned with a guided meditation and optional Reiki will be offered to enhance your intentions set for your practice.

No experience necessary. Mats and props will be provided at Wildlight Yoga, 4140 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Admission is $25. Pre-registration required. Members receive 10% off. No refunds or credits.
