Grandmother Flordemayo is a well-known healer and a seer. She grew up in a Mayan village in Nicaragua, where “she was born with the gift of visions, dream and spiritual sight,” which has led her around the world to teach and heal, according to her Facebook page.  Also once part of the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, Flordemayo will help youth with projects focusing on social justice and change at the Northwest Youth Slam — a one-day event and project of PeaceJam Northwest. She’ll also speak at the University of Oregon. Her talk, entitled “Planting Seeds of Prayer and Humanity,” will discuss her heritage, compassion and peace. For ten years, she traveled with the Council of Indigenous Grandmothers, where they spoke to the United Nations, religious leaders and national leaders about future generations and the global environment. 

Grandmother Flordemayo will be at the Northwest Youth Slam 9 am Saturday, Sept. 24, at North Eugene High School, 200 Silver Ln., $25, scholarships available; and later at 6:30pm at Straub Hall, University of Oregon, 1451 Onyx St.; FREE. 

Soprano Márcia Guimarães, a native of Campinas, Brazil, earned her master’s degree in voice from Northwestern University and her doctorate in musical education from the State University of Campinas. She was also a winner of the National Opera Contest in Chicago. The opera performer will sing Brazilian art songs at the Concerts At First hosted by First United Methodist Church. The songs, “spanning several centuries,” will be accompanied by Julia Brown on piano. 

See Márcia Guimarães performs at 3 pm Saturday, Sept. 25, at the First United Methodist Church, 1376 Olive St.; $10 suggested donation and canned goods for Food For Lane County.

The city of Eugene Public Art Program is inviting the public to take part in the “Art of the MOOC.” The massive open online course will explore public art and spatial politics in the first of three videos and discussions hosted by Lane Community College downtown. “Art of the MOOC: Public Art and Pedagogy,” created by Creative Time and Duke University, will be facilitated by Vicki Ambrose “to offer enlightening conversation about art.” The entire course is available online at coursera.org/learn/public-art-pedagogy.

The first discussion of "Public Art: The Big View" will be held at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, Sept. 27, LCC Downtown, 101 W. 10th Ave., Room 308; FREE.

Calendar Submission Guidelines:

 

Calendar publication days are every Thursday. Due date for the calendar is the Thursday before the Thursday issue in which you would like your event published. Our What's Happening calendar is an eight-day calendar, Thursday to Thursday, while our music listings calendar is a seven-day calendar, Thursday to Wednesday. 

Example: If your event happens on Wednesday, Aug. 20, your listing would appear in our Aug. 14 issue, and the listing would be due to the calendar editor on Thursday, Aug. 7. Events that happen on Thursdays may be listed in two issues if the listing is submitted on time.

To facilitate organizing our calendar listings, please send your information as text in the body of the email  to cal@eugeneweekly.com, and attach only pertinent photos as high resolution jpg files, 1MB or larger. Attaching high resolution pictures greatly increases your chances of getting featured in our weekly calendar.

Sending information mixed with images descriptions, formatting and attachments makes locating the information difficult for our calendar writers, so please send all information in text, at the top of your message. Label all photos with the name of what is pictured or the event.

At the bottom of the email feel free to add extra information and details in case we can expand on your listing a little.

The closer you are to our listing format, the better the chance of your listing getting in the way you want it!
