Sounds of the 60s (the 1860s)

Autry National Center of the America West

4700 Western Heritage Way, Los Angeles, 90027

11:00am to 4:00pm

A day-long celebration of the music of the Civil War era.

The Band of the California Battalion, a recreation of a Union Brass Band, will play some of the great martial music of the Civil War, from Battle Hymn of the Republic to Dixie, while Sausage Grinder, a local country blues band, performs songs that kept soldiers entertained around the campfire. Visit Crossroads West Cafe for a plate of BBQ and explore Empire and Liberty, an exhibition that will change the way you look at—and listen to—the Civil War.

Civil War-era stage décor provided by Riley’s Stone Soup Farm and Heritage Orchard.

Attendees are encouraged to dress in period dress or uniform. No firearms or weapons, including replicas, are permitted on site.

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.
