Living Dream Arts


Circus Fundraiser Extravaganza
Thursday, Feb 25th
@ Supperclub SF
657 Harrison Street, San Francisco

Dear Friends,
As you may have heard, the traveling charitable circus troupe, Dreamtime Circus, has joined with the Bay Area based youth arts organization, VAGABOOM!, to create a new nonprofit organization called Living Dream Arts.  The original names won't disappear, however.  You'll still hear about "Dreamtime international tours" and "VAGABOOM! after-school programs", but these are now programs operating under a single organization with a single mission: Living Dream Arts, bringing interactive art programs and performances to communities in the Bay Area and around the world!

~ Circus Fundraiser Extravaganza ~
We're kicking off this living dream, and sending off the Dreamtime Peruvian Tour, at a spectacular circus cabaret and dinner event at the Supperclub in San Francisco on Thursday, February 25th.  Details are below and reservations (which are strongly encouraged due to limited availability) can be made at:

www.LivingDreamArts .org/events/
Can't make the event, but want to support Living Dream Arts?

You can make a tax-deductible donation at www.LivingDreamArts .org.

See you at the show....

FunkyTown Roller Disco This Friday in San Francisco
Friday, February 26th

at SOMAarts
934 Brannan St @ 8th
San Francisco, CA 94123

Hi Skaters and Burners,

I stand at 178 days and counting until we leave for the playa at Burning Man 2010.  We will begin our fundraising efforts for the Black Rock Roller Disco this Friday night as we think we have a new skate venue that will be really great.

If you had a great time at the Cellspace Roller Disco that was off the hook, or had a blast at the Mighty that was off the chain,  SOMArts is the place you want to be this Friday night!!!!

Come on out this Friday as we transform SOMArts Culture Center in to "FunkyTown Roller Disco".  Dress up in your funkiest roller disco outfits and come shake your booty to the old school funk and roller disco beat put forth by D. Miles, San Francisco's GodFather of Skating.

The event will be featured in the San Francisco's Chronicle's "City Exposed".  Also will be in the house taking photos of all the disco freaks.Come out and be seen as the City's roller disco scene moves to the forefront of exciting things to do in San Francisco.

All ages welcome.  This is our first time at SOMArts and there won't be a bar this time. We want to do an event there first to see how everything works out.  However feel free to bring the refreshment of your choice!!!

Keep Rollin',
