Sand Mandala Opening Ceremony with Tibetan Monks
6:30PM – 8PM
Baltimore Yoga Village
6080 Falls Rd, Baltimore
Share beautiful, sacred Tibetan traditions as demonstrated through art, living ritual, and prayer. With horns and harmonic chanting, they will open the five day ceremony of creating a sand mandala on the floor of the Mt Washington yoga studio. Come to hear this form of chanting unique to Tibet and watch them begin a masterful piece of art. On a five foot by five foot square wooden board they will begin to draw the sacred geometry, which will be the blueprint for the five days of creation of an impermanent masterpiece made of thousands of tiny grains of sand. This Tantric art serves as a deep prayer to restore order and harmony to the environment. The monks are highly trained in this work. Devout followers of the 14th Dalai Lama, they are sent to the United States to share their peaceful traditions.

The Bun Shop Presents: -pf (w/ UHHM) – folk and jazz
8PM – 10PM
The Bun Shop
239 W Read St, Baltimore
Michigan-based multi-instrumentalist Peter Felsman’s lyrically-driven “attic folk” band, -pf (pronounced “dash”, “p”, “f”,), takes stories and topics from Felsman’s observations about different aspects of humanship – hope, loss, ambivalence, bike lanes – where realism and comedy often meet, and sets them to song. Think a gang of friends supporting their acoustic songsmith of a younger brother who plays guitar like a sensitive percussionist who can’t read enough Hermann Hesse.
U.H.H.M has stood for many things, and other things over time. Us? Him? Her? Me? It has, and continues to be, and strives to be. Sometimes it isn’t, but when you hear it you won’t care. Nick Saia plays guitar, Chris Frick keyboards and horn, and Jack Naden plays the drums. U.H.H.M has at times been called “jazz music.”

Opening Reception for Watson
7PM – 11PM
The Alchemy of Art
1637 Eastern Ave, Baltimore
Watson is an artist based in Maryland whose work focuses on exploring the urban landscape. Nearly all of Watson’s life he have lived surrounded by nature and pastoral beauty. For many this would be artistically inspiring, but it has never aroused his creativity. He found his creative sparked outside of his rural world. Watson’s work is fueled by the excitement of the “big city” and the often overlooked beauty of the landscape. Infrastructure as well as decay in urban environments are what intrigue him the most. Informational signs, advertising, graffiti, layered paint, and neglect weave a rich tapestry of imagery that is an endless supply of inspiration. His work has been featured in galleries throughout the mid-Atlantic region, and in various online galleries.

MORE w/Kristen Schier: CCCFest Workshop
9:30AM – 11:30AM
Zissimos Bar
1023 W 36th St, Baltimore
In this workshop, Kristen will teach us that if we only explore and play in our comfort zones, we’ll never know what we’re truly capable of. Improvisers will be asked to push their level of emotional and physical commitment past their usual zone of performance, making sure no performance is casual – and letting no offer remain mundane. Through various exercises and scene work, improvisers will not only be asked to give MORE, but to think about where to put their energy to best yield powerful results.

Friction Fire: Bow Drill
10AM – 3PM
Charm City Farms
1310 Hillman St, Baltimore
To register or for full details please go to the website.
http://www.charmcityfarms.org/homeskills/ The bow drill is an ancient and effective way for making fire by friction. It requires more parts than the hand drill, but is easier on the hands and thus ideal for beginners. In this workshop each participant will be making his or her own bow drill kit from local materials, to begin practicing with and to take home. The instructor will go over the appropriate types of wood to use for each part of the kit, demonstrate the basic technique of making and transferring a coal, and also cover the best materials to use for fire-starter, and how to get into a good rhythm with your drill. While empowering, this skill requires patience, persistence, and knowing how to pace yourself.
