VERy short plays
SATURDAY, JUNE 22 | 7 P.M.
Join us for an evening of one-act, five-minute (and even shorter) plays, written by Dylan Kinnett. These will be presented as a staged reading with actors. Morbid farce, executive intrigue, and other odd tales await you.

FREE LISTENING PARTY
SUNDAY, MARCH 24 | 5-7 PM
The Baltimore Kissa Society presents Listening Party 30: Celebrating the Women Who Blended Pop and Jazz
Jazz is one of the most unique genres of music and has often been categorized as “serious” or even conceptual. But jazz has always borrowed freely from other genres of music and the best jazz vocalists have been able to not only borrow, but marry their music with pop. Listening Party 30 welcomes guest presenter Andria Hanner, who will present vinyl recordings of iconic singers including Lena Horne, Dinah Washington, Sarah Vaughan, Barbara Streisand, and many more.
Following our featured playlist, we’ll offer open turntables to anyone bringing their own vinyl. Complimentary beverages will be provided and all are welcome no matter your previous jazz experience.
Lectures and Workshops
Artists and the marketplace
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 10 | 5:30-7:30 PM
Grab a complimentary beer, glass of wine, or cup of coffee as artist Khadija Adell outlines some of the key questions surrounding strategies for building a long-term art practice.
How do we define the marketplace?
How is value created around an artist’s work?
How do we all contribute towards disrupting the systems that devalue the labor of historically marginalized groups of artists?
This program is part gallery talk, part group conversation and participants will leave with tools and resources to help them continue working on these issues in the future.
