Saturday, August 12th, 6-9pm
Fashionhaus is a playful exploration of the interactions between textiles and bodies, celebrating ways we choose to dress and express ourselves with movement, sound, colour, costume and texture!
Using installation, sculpture, performance, video, and claymation, Fashionhaus will explore different interpretations of textiles, juxtaposing the tactility of the tangible textiles with newer media representations of textiles, and how each of these engages with the body.
Featuring works by
Virginia Broyles + Alex Crow
Isaac Cohen aka Cabbibo
Sylvia Toy St Louis
Creative Growth Art Center artists Jackie Frank, Emily Dunster-Farey, Peter Salsman and John Hiltunen

An invitation to Havana this November
THIS EVENT IS A BENEFIT FOR OUR CUBAN FRIENDS
Our group visited Havana in March. We learned from our Cuban counterparts about the revolutionary potential of free and open source software. This Fall, we’re collaborating to bring more friends and allies to Havana for three days of hands-on workshops, before CubaConf.org.
We are grateful that this event is also nourished by OneTable, an organization that exists to support Shabbos gatherings. They provided a generous grant that covers our rental costs at B4BELAB, our DJ friends making the evening dance-worthy, and the food and drink. Learn more and host your own Shabbos dinner at www.onetable.org.
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN!

THE LAND AND THE SPACE
This event focuses on international solidarity with Cuba’s open source community. We acknowledge that this event takes place on occupied land, the traditional territory of the Ohlone.
B4BEL4B Gallery is up one flight of stairs. If you’d like assistance, get in touch and we’ll figure out a solution. Restrooms are gender-neutral.
Creating an inclusive and appropriate space is important to us. Any sort of verbal/ emotional/ sexual aggression will not be tolerated. If you feel threatened in any way, please speak with the venue staff or event organizers. Please respect the space and each other!
