Parents rejoice! There’s a fun, safe new place to take little ones to play in Eugene: the Adventure! Children’s Museum. Newly minted exhibits — all built by volunteers — include a travel station lobby with postal locker scavenger hunt; Squish! A Pacific Northwest Camping Experience; Stop the Presses: a Mid-Century Newsroom; Dig Site: Archaeologists and Paleontologists Only; The Big Build: Block Masonry around the World; Busy Build: a Make-It Space, as well as an arts and crafts room, The Tree House Library; Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre; and the Soft Rock River Bed quiet play area. Who wouldn’t want to hang out in the Soft Rock River Bed quiet play area? With easy proximity to the city’s bike paths and bus station, and with ample free parking, the 2,500-square-foot exhibit hall can be found inside Valley River Center mall, at the top of the escalator, right above the movie theater. The museum’s exhibits are intended for ages 2-12. “Most of the visitors we’ve had have been in the preschool to early elementary ages,” says the museum’s founder, Amelia Reising. “But we’ve noticed a lot of teenagers and adults come in to play with their younger family members, and often they’re the ones building at the Lego table for an hour.” “We’re on a quest to help grow kids into artists, innovators, and travelers,” Reising says. “We’ll offer eclectic classes, story times, activities, and birthday parties.” 

The nonprofit museum Adventure! Children’s Museum is open 10 am to 7 pm weekdays and 11 am to 6 pm weekends in Valley River Center. Admission is $4 for adults and children and ages 2 and up. For more info, visit AdventureChildrensMuseum.org.

If there’s one thing Trump’s election has done, it’s get the people of Eugene some exercise —both by taking to the streets and by exercising their free speech rights. Last week’s Science March drew an estimated 2,000 people downtown and now this Saturday it’s the Climate March or really a convergence — a rally and a march: the Rally for a Climate of Safety in Eugene is being held in conjunction with the People’s Climate March in DC, and that rally will be joined by marchers from the University of Oregon Youth Contingent. The UO youths’ mission statement says, “We intend to demand action from the powers that be, in the city, the university and beyond. The world can’t wait any longer. Droughts, natural disasters, refugee crises, and famines have already begun.” The students say, “We march at 12:30, no dilly-dallying or lolly-gagging! (Dawdling is also frowned upon.)” Local Climate Rally organizers Deb McGee and Patty Hine call upon participants to “wear your colors, bring your signs, participate in this youth-led event, with hundreds of sister People’s Climate Marches across the country. A few greedy bullies are poisoning our political climate and Earth’s climate, and it’s time to stop them!” Go to world.350.org/eugene and click on the events in the sidebar to learn songs and dances for the march and other organizing details.
Rally for a Climate of Safety in Eugene is 1 pm, Saturday, April 29, at the Wayne Morse Federal Courthouse, 405 E. 8th Avenue. UO students will meet at noon at the UO EMU to march to the rally. FREE. — Camilla Mortensen

There is physical strength in numbers, but people often overlook the emotional strength that comes with something intangible, like solidarity and support. Combine all of those things and you get Take Back The Night — a rally, march and speak-out in support of sexual assault survivors. “My favorite thing about putting on Take Back the Night is how powerfully the march through the streets of Eugene symbolizes reclaiming marginalized people’s safety on public streets at night - and the community and solidarity that is represented in that very act of resistance together,” ASUO Women’s Center Director Fatima Pervaiz tells EW via email. The 39th annual event is organized by the ASUO Women’s Center in coalition with Sexual Assault Support Services of Lane County (SASS) and the UO campus community, and has continuously pulled in big crowds. According to Pervaiz, last year’s Take Back The Night rally had an estimated 400 people in attendance. The event begins with a rally that takes place at the EMU amphitheater on campus, followed by a march downtown to the Atrium Building, at 943 Olive Street, where survivors can choose to tell their stories during the speak-out. “The toughest part about putting on Take Back the Night is ensuring that the event maintain a trauma-informed, survivor-centered and intersectional feminist lens while continuing to engage large audiences across a spectrum of awareness on sexual violence prevention and activism,” Pervaiz says. But, no matter the difficulty, each year, the effort put into the event always comes through.

Lane Community College’s The Oresteia Project is an all-original musical, built in collaboration with some of our arts community’s heavy hitters. Featuring music by Cullen Vance, with book and lyrics by six writers, including LCC’s Brian Haimbach and Jen Ferro — and with support from students Gypsy Prince, Cairo Smith, Morgan Suitor and Ripley Cerna — the show promises a new take on an ancient tale. “I’ve always wanted to do a Greek tragedy with original music,” Haimbach says. “They’re just so operatic that they lend themselves to the heightened emotions that you only get with music.” Haimbach notes that, though coordinating the work of six writers certainly presents challenges, it has yielded surprises as well. “Seeing these students acting like rock stars and owning the material was so rewarding,” he says of watching rehearsals. “And I’m surprised how great it sounded. Cullen Vance’s music is literally tailor-made for them and sounds amazing.” LCC will offer free admission to the show with a canned food donation to Food for Lane County. “And we’re doing a promotion for the HIV Alliance,” Haimbach says. “Free admission to anyone who gets tested with them.” 

LCC presents The Oresteia Project at 7:30 pm Thursday through Saturday, April 27-29 and at 2:00 pm Sundays, April 27 through May 7, in the Ragozzino Performance Hall, 4000 E. 30th Ave; $5– $10 or FREE w/canned food donation or HIV testing. — Rachael Carnes
