15 Years of Printed Paper – Division of Labor Festival, The Lab, San Francisco, June 13-28, 2013
We are presenting an extensive number of our publications in one of our booklet clouds. A reception is being held for its presentation on June 13, 6-9 PM.
The Lab is an interdisciplinary arts organization supporting the development and presentation of new visual, performing, media, sonic and literary art. Of particular interest is work which crosses boundaries, encourages evolving artistic and social dialogue between artists and audiences, and develops the culture and community of the San Francisco Bay Area. Founded in 1984 by a group of interdisciplinary artists. The Lab presents approximately forty live events and ten to fifteen solo and group exhibitions per year.
Division of Labor presents a diverse community of performers in the genres of improvised music, experimental instrumentation and composition, electronic music performance, interdisciplinary performance, literary and media art. The Festival will include seven evenings of performances between June 15th and June 28th, 2013. Each evening will feature three or four artists or artist groups.
A primary goal of the festival is to provide an affordable and accessible venue and develop new audiences for this challenging new work by presenting more established artists alongside emerging talent. Division of Labor will showcase the breadth of the Lab's acclaimed experimental performance programming and feature local, national and international artists.

Supermax Subscriptions – Ongoing project since 2008
GREAT NEWS! Tamms has been closed!!!
Supermax Subscriptions seeks to connect the surplus of well-traveled citizens to a population that never goes anywhere: prisoners in American supermax prisons.
As most of you know, frequent flyer miles often expire before it is possible to save enough of them for a free airline ticket, seating upgrade, or other costly prize. Supermax Subscriptions asks people with these surplus miles to exchange small quantities of unused miles for magazine subscriptions to supermax prisoners. For as few as 300 miles, you can give the gift of a yearly magazine subscription to a prisoner with little or no reading material.
The first goal of Supermax Subscriptions is to provide every prisoner in Tamms C-MAX supermax prison with at least one magazine subscription. Men in Tamms are in their cells 23-24 hours a day in permanent solitary confinement. The men have been there for years on end, many for ten years. They have no communal activity, no phone calls, no programs, no education, no work, no librarian, and virtually no reading (mostly children's books). A magazine subscription is one way to give these men your support. Your gift will not be taken for granted.
This project is a collaborative effort by Tamms Poetry Committee, Laurie Jo Reynolds, Sarah Ross, Temporary Services, and you!

You are also welcome to purchase magazines if you don't have any frequent flier miles.
