Our Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

Depth Workshop: Gratitude, Grief & Going Forth @ Full Circle Yoga
Dec 3 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Depth Workshop: Gratitude, Grief & Going Forth @ Full Circle Yoga |  |  |

Facilitated by Erin Geesaman Rabke, Somatic Naturalist and Embodiment Mentor

5 CEUs included for Utah Mental Health Professionals

The day will include guided embodiment, writing practice, a communal ritual, an opportunity to connect in small groups, a community circle, and of course, there will be gorgeous poetry woven throughout.

I deeply believe in the power of an intentional community coming together to practice movement and stillness, quiet and connection, inviting our love and gratitude, inviting the difficult guest of grief, and, having been tenderized by those wise guests, freshly visioning how we might bring our unique gifts to co-create the more beautiful world we wish to see manifest. As Francis Weller says, “This is the solitary work that we cannot do alone.”

What I won’t do in this gathering is stand in front of you and talk and talk and feed you a bunch of information as if I’m the expert on what you need.

What I will do is invite your fully embodied presence, the wisdom and the concerns, the blessings and the aches, the gratitudes and burdens, the hopes, dreads, visions, creative inspirations, and unique gifts to come more clearly into awareness so they can offer their wise guidance. You’ll have an opportunity to share in a supportive community where it will all be met with respect, care and encouragement.

We’ll take enlivening, fresh perspectives on what’s unfolding in our lives by seeing with new eyes, and we’ll invite clarity to emerge to guide us as we return to our life, renewed, embodied, and inspired to begin again, going forth at least half a shade braver.

Through the Lens: Grey Gardens Film Screening & Post-Film Discussion @ The City Library
Dec 7 all-day
Through the Lens: Grey Gardens Film Screening & Post-Film Discussion @ The City Library |  |  |

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming screening of Grey Gardens on Wednesday, December 7th at 7 pm at the City Library downtown location. This illuminating documentary follows two women who lived together at the Grey Gardens estate for decades in increasing squalor and isolation and their recollection of their past experiences. Please join us for the film and stick around afterward for a post-film discussion about the film and its resonance today with a University of Utah professor and KUER’s RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

Presented as part of our Through the Lens series, which for 2022 features a collaboration with the University of Utah’s Department of Film and Media Arts to present an extended exploration of what many Film Lovers regard as the “Classic Films” in cinematic history. The post-film discussion will ask, “Why is this film a classic, and who is it a classic for?”

SYNOPSIS
Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (“Big Edie”) and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale (“Little Edie”) were the aunt and the first cousin, respectively, of former US First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Throughout the fall of 1971 and into 1972, their living conditions—their house was infested by fleas, inhabited by numerous cats and raccoons, deprived of running water, and filled with garbage and decay—were exposed as the result of an article in the National Enquirer and a cover story in New York Magazine after a series of inspections (which the Beales called “raids”) by the Suffolk County Health Department. With the Beale women facing eviction and the razing of their house, in the summer of 1972 Jacqueline Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill provided the necessary funds to stabilize and repair the dilapidated house so that it would meet village codes.

Craft Lake City Workshop: Handbuilt Pottery Candle Holders @ Valley Fair
Dec 7 @ 6:00 pm
Craft Lake City Workshop: Handbuilt Pottery Candle Holders @ Valley Fair |  |  |

Join local potter Neena Plant for this handbuilt pottery workshop! Using air-dry clay and optional holiday-themed elements like candy canes, we’ll create a custom handbuilt candle holder perfect for gifting to a loved one or setting a cozy vibe all winter long. Learn how to cut, roll, score, shape, and more in this beginner-friendly pottery class! Attendees will have the opportunity to customize their own take-home paint kits working with a variety of colors to paint their finished candle holder once dried. All supplies provided for this hands-on workshop.

About the Instructor: I create wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery in my garage studio and fire my work in my outdoor propane gas kiln. I love making pottery bottles, honey pots, and ceramic jewelry. My pieces are often unusual, and some of my favorite glazes have a metallic finish, particularly on sculptural work. My aim is to use a different approach from the work of other potters, to use my overall skills as an artist who is also a painter to bring my own perspective to my sculptural and functional pieces. neenaplant.com
