Smash Mouth, the band that’s given you such memorable songs as “All-Star,” “Walkin’ on the Sun,” “Then the Morning Comes,” and “I’m a Believer,” is back for more season-of-the-sun fun with their vibrant new CD “MAGIC”.

Shakespeare by the Sea presents "The Tempest"

Aquarium of the Pacific

100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, CA 90802

7:00pm

Brought ashore by the winds of Tempest and the force of Magic, Shakespeare’s troupe of island castaways spin a plot of treachery and deceit that only love can conquer. Whirling with conspiracy and intrigue, murderous intent and comic bumbling, the island is set for one last hurrah that is the Bard’s triumphant departure, stage left. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

For audiences seeking quality, family entertainment, Shakespeare by the Sea's free performances can't be beat. Pack a picnic, a blanket and beach chair, gather loved ones, and settle in under the stars for a night of classic entertainment. The tales are timeless, the admission ticketless, and the experience priceless.

ADMISSION IS FREE

Dispute Resolution Techniques for People in Arts and Entertainment

Canoga Park Youth Arts Center

7222 Remmet Ave., Canoga Park, CA

7:00pm to 8:30pm

Program Description:

As an artist, writer, musician or creative person, have you ever found yourself in conflict with collaborators, producers, or other people involved in your project? Do you wish that you knew how to manage the situation better to reduce the level of anger and frustration on both sides of the conflict? Join CLA and mediator and artist Dorit Cypis for a program covering some practical tools to assess and respond to the situation. Cypis will discuss how the nature of conflict is affected by relationships--who we are to ourselves and who we are to others and how identity beliefs form bias habits that contribute to conflicts. This hands-on workshop will also cover some practical strategies to minimize the harm caused by these identity issues in the context of conflicts over creative projects.

Presenter:

Dorit Cypis is an award winning artist, innovative professional mediator and educator. Her work exploring identity and social relations has been presented at major museums in North America and Europe. In 2007 she founded Foreign Exchanges to offer conflict engagement and transformation services through trainings, consultation and dialogue formats. With a belief that conflict between people is also within people, Dorit innovatively draws skills from art, communication and mediation to build bridges across personal and cultural differences. Her clients come from the arts, civic culture and education. Dorit is a founding member of Mediators Beyond Borders, served as Chair of the Middle East Initiative to partner with Neve Shalom Wahat al Salam/Israel 2009, was past Leader of the MBB Los Angeles Chapter, has initiated Jewish/Arab Public Dialogues At Levantine Cultural Center, and has worked with Occupy LA as roving mediator. Dorit is a published writer and has taught on the complexity of cultural and personal difference throughout the USA, Canada, Israel, Holland and France. She earned a Masters of Fine Art, California Institute for the Arts, and Masters of Dispute Resolution, Pepperdine University.

These workshops are made possible, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission; and The City of Los Angeles, Department of Cultural Affairs. Additional support provided by the California Arts Council.
