Creating and Working Your First Strategic or Business Plan
Sep 30 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Many nonprofits are born out of the passion and vision of a founder. But, for your nonprofit to flourish beyond the tireless dedication of that founder, for it to mature and live on no matter who is in the driver’s seat, you need to create a thoughtful, realistic organizational plan. Not just one plan, but several. Unfortunately, after hours of group effort, many small nonprofit plans collect dust. You need to complete tasks in the plans you create. That takes planned structure and discipline. We’ll speed through the basics of good planning and introduce several formats and tools to explore later that may help you build and work your plans. We’ll send you on your way with next steps you plan to take!

Presented by Anne Hudson.

Made possible by The Emily Fund and Friends of the Library through gifts to The Indianapolis Public Library Foundation.

Wonderland Film Festival
Sep 30 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Englewood Neighborhood Film Festival returns on its second year as Wonderland Film Festival!

Join us in celebrating films made by Near Eastside neighbors and beyond! Just like last year, the festival will showcase films created by filmmakers of all skill levels.

Stay tuned for more details regarding films, vendors and aditional events related to the festival!

ABOUT WONDERLAND FILM FESTIVAL
Wonderland Film Festival’s main goal is to get Indianapolis Near Eastside neighbors to make movies. Storytelling through film is a powerful tool that can be used to evoke empathy. Through the films made by neighbors, we can learn more about the people who live nearby us and celebrate their stories.

The idea for Wonderland Film Festival came from The Simpsons episode “A Star is Burns” in which the town of Springfield hosts a film festival showcasing short films made by all of the townspeople. In the process, a more profound and nuanced picture of each character is revealed.

Wonderland Film Festival is not just the festival itself, but the process of encouraging and teaching neighbors to tell stories, learning to make movies, building community and celebrating the results. This annual film festival is creating a unique and lasting tradition on one very special night of the year where anyone who wants to try amateur filmmaking can be celebrated for who they are in their neighborhood.

Service
Oct 1 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Join us for our monthly Celebration Service at The Athenaeum.

We are continuing a conversation on Eric Butterworth’s “Spiritual Economics”

Richard Brendan will guide the conversation

Roy Glen Jones and Tim Spradlin will provide music

Fellowship will follow the service

Here are a few quotes from the book to contemplate:
You are a living magnet, constantly drawing to you the things, the people, and the circumstances which are in accord with your thoughts. In other words, you are where you are in experience, in relationships, even in financial conditions, because of what you are (which is where you are in consciousness).

If you are willing to accept full responsibility for your life. then even as your level of thought has put you where you are (or at least contributed to it), so by a change of consciousness, you can change the experiences of your life.

Your personal welfare begins with your consciousness. It is not what happens on Wall Street. It is not the “state of the economy.” It has its inception in the state of your mind.

Cinema Conversation: Dont Tell Anyone
Oct 5 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Fleeing the growing violence and unrest of Columbia, Angy’s mother brought her to the US when she was just 4. She is promised the American dream if she keeps her undocumented status a secret. That all ends when she graduates from high school and realizes there is no opportunity for her. Despite her fear of deportation, Angy “comes out” as undocumented.

Mike Gordon (Phish Bassist) at The Vogue – IndyMojo Presents
Oct 5 @ 9:00 pm – Oct 6 @ 12:00 am

* Mike Gordon
Burlington, VT

Home

Phish bassist Mike Gordon returns to the road with his band this fall. Unlike previous projects, the goal was to put together a band that would be in it for the long haul. Guitarist and longtime collaborator Scott Murawski and Mike searched the nooks and crannies of this land for players to complete the outfit. Scott can rip guitar to no end, and he belts out with the kind of voice that at once sounds like your best friend and like the deep backwoods soul and grit of a true American hobo hero, too cool to talk in normal small-talk.

The band also includes organ and synth-master Robert Walter (from The Greyboy Allstars), sharp-shooter John Kimock on drums and percussion/n’goni/programmer Craig Myers. Mike jumps up and down a lot with this band. Maybe too much, but: a lot. There is a lot of smiling. And frowning, but more the latter. The band’s new repertoire will be augmented by secret synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.

FAQ

➸WHAT IS MEDICINE TRIBE? CAN I JOIN?
The Medicine Tribe is a collective of like-minded individuals who believe in the power of love and healing, who care for planet Earth, who wish to be the change, and who were brought together by the love of conscious music! Everyone is welcome! You can join our online community here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/506543842777348/

➸GATE HOURS
The gate will officially open at 9 am on Friday, October 6th, 2017, However, early entry will be allowed for volunteers (see info below about volunteer opportunities). The gate will be closed at 11 pm each night to ensure safety. If you intend to arrive after 11 pm, please contact the organizer ahead of time. DRIVE SLOW when approaching the gate, the road is curvy at the gate entry and on a hill! No one will be allowed to enter without a general admission ticket and these can be purchased in advance or at the gate. Be sure to bring proof of your ticket purchase if purchased in advance.

➸WHY TICKETS? WHY FOOD DONATION?
The Gathering of the Tribe will be held at a private farm property under the care and stewardship of a fellow tribe member. Ticket and food donation are required for entry. No profits will be taken from ticket sales. 100% of the ticket proceeds will go back into creating the most magical Gathering we can. Hosting a gathering of this magnitude takes resources and funding. Our goal is to provide for the tribe as much as we can and do it in a sustainable and self-sufficient way. Tickets are available online and at the gate. If you find the ticket price unaffordable, there will be VOLUNTEER opportunities so that you may give back through service to the tribe rather than monetary giving. IMPORTANT NOTE: Everyone entering the event grounds will need a Ticket, unless you are a volunteer. Regardless of weather, changes to your schedule, personal choices, sickness, family emergencies or any other reason, all TICKET SALES ARE FINAL, 100% NON-REFUNDABLE & NON-RETURNABLE. By purchasing a ticket you understand & agree to all the information provided on the ticket website. Tickets are however transferable & you are encouraged to gift your ticket if circumstances arise where you cannot make the event. See the sections about Volunteer Opportunities and Donation on the FAQs for more information.

➸DONATION
This event requires a MINIMUM admission cost of $30 per person. While that entry fee will help make this event happen, any additional donations are WELCOMED! We want to make this gathering as beautiful and healing as possible, but we need your help! Even if you cannot attend the event, you may still donate through the ticket website. If you find yourself in a position of abundance and feel called to share with the Tribe, we will put those funds to good use! In addition, if you wish to sponsor a particular project with materials or monetary contributions so you can directly see the results of your generosity, we will be forever grateful! Here are some projects needing funding: building more footbridges for trails, building a sacred space (yurt, teepee, etc.), canopies for gate entry, creating play space in kid village, providing materials for kid village activities, feeding the masses with the kitchen help, building a sacred fire, etc. If you wish to donate, you may do so on the ticket website by selecting the donate option or by donating at the gate. This event is powered by YOU!

➸VOLUNTEER
Volunteer opportunities are available for anyone who cannot afford the admission cost or who feel called to serve the Tribe. Please stay tuned for more volunteer information and how to sign-up! Some volunteer roles will include set-up, parking posse, gatekeeper, peace keeper, kid village mentor, workshop facilitator, kitchen help, and more!

➸CAMPING, RVs & BUSES
This is a PRIMATIVE camping event with NO HOOKUPS or electric available. There will be several camping sections designed to meet everyone’s needs and to create an intimate environment. There will be car camping available in some pasture areas for people who need or prefer that. There will be a family camping section next to the kid village. There will also be forest camping, but that will require gear to be hiked in. RVs and Buses will be allowed in the car camping sections. Please be aware that this is farm pasture terrain.

➸VENDORS
Come one and come all vending! We encourage vending of your DIY and homemade crafts, art, services, foods, and more! If you are interested in vending, please stay tuned to find out how to get registered. You will be required to submit an application to reserve your space and there will be a vendor fee of $30. This fee will be in addition to ticket entry into the event. Vending spots will be in the main event area, and will allow enough space for a canopy and camping. Don’t take more space than you need please.

➸SECURITY & SAFETY
This is mostly a self-regulated event where Tribe members are expected to speak out and stand up for what is right. Don’t be a jerk, bring only good vibes, and always remember that LOVE is the answer. However, appointed Peace Keepers will be available throughout the event if needed to ensure everyone’s safety. In this Tribe, we take care of each other and strive to create a SAFE SPACE for all! Please be sure to respect each other and listen.

➸HANDICAP ACCESSIBILITY
We will do everything we can to make this event accessible to all. There will be parking within walking distance from the main event area. However, the grounds are not designed for handicap accessibility. If you have any special needs to be considered, please reach out the event organizers so that we may try our best to accommodate you. NOTE: The event grounds are typical of Indiana farm terrain. Trails & foot paths are often curvy, rough, grassy & hard to maneuver for some. Therefore we do not consider this land to be accessible for all.

➸LEAVE-NO-TRACE
This is a LEAVE-NO-TRACE event! It’s simple: leave the place you visit the same or better than you found it. This property is an actual family farm where people live, treat it the way you would want others to treat your own home.

Bracken Hill Music & Arts Festival
Oct 6 @ 5:00 pm – Oct 8 @ 8:00 am

In 1907, Theodore Clement Steele and his wife Selma purchased acreage atop a high hill in Belmont known as Bracken Hill, and created an environment where art and nature meet. The Steeles were artists; T.C. was the “grand old man of Indiana painting,” the premier portrait painter in the state and a member of the Hoosier Group of Impressionist painters. Selma was a graphic designer, gardener, a collector of textiles, and a former assistant superintendent of art in the city schools of Indianapolis. Together, they made the southern Indiana landscapes and art communities flourish, and the Steele’s presence in Brown County attracted other artists, gradually bringing about the Art Colony of the Midwest. Thanks to the forward-thinking of Selma Steele, their property and influence has been preserved by the State since her passing in 1945.

With that, we are pleased to announce the first annual Bracken Hill Music & Arts Festival coming October 6/7, 2017! Our mission is to celebrate and renew our commitment to the arts, history, and beautiful landscapes that make up the T.C. Steele State Historic Site, part of Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites. The site is home to 211 acres of historic gardens, lawns, and 5 hiking trails through rolling Indiana woods.

This year, Bracken Hill Music & Arts Festival will feature camping, a dozen regionally touring musical acts, an array of visual artists, a family-friendly environment with activities and workshops for all ages, guided nature hikes, a non-profit village, an art fundraiser, food and merchandise vendors, a beer garden, and more!

With a capacity of 400-500 guests, expect this to be a very intimate and relaxed time. We would be honored for you to join us. Stay tuned for lineup and ticket announcement!

Pass the Torch for Women Foundation

With their peers being in the minority within top decision-making levels, how do women create the connections that allow them to grow as leaders? How do they gain the skills and support to move up the ranks? The Pass The Torch for Women Foundation is addressing this issue in a unique and powerful way. We are creating a community of women and men committed to supporting women throughout their career lifecycles, from college students to emerging leaders to top executives. This community comes together to provide mentoring, networking and leadership training to help women reach their full potential.

Soil 2017 Bringing Our Money Back Down To Earth
Oct 16 all-day

People are waking up to the importance of the soil. Soil fertility is vital for human health, resilient communities and strategies for combating climate change.

But most people don’t talk about soil and money in the same breath.

Since 2010, tens of thousands of us in dozens of communities have begun supporting local food enterprises that are building healthy soil. Through public meetings large and small, local networks, and lots of peer-to-peer learning, we’ve steered more than $57 million into 632 soil-building food enterprises.
