Reminder: Tai Chi at the Farmers Market

Dear CAFAM members,

Come join CAFAM for Tai Chi at the Farmers Market on Saturdays for the second summer starting on July 20th.

Tai chi is a mind-body exercise that is simultaneously easy to begin and near-impossible to perfect. All ages and experience levels are welcome.

Tai Chi at the Farmers Market is an introduction to a longstanding Chinese practice of community-building and personal wellness that prioritizes showing up and practicing over performance. It’s also a great way to make new friends and meet new neighbors.

-WHEN: 9am-10am every Saturday, July 20-August 24th.

-WHERE: By the rose garden at Deering Oaks Park during the Farmers’ Market. For those of you who don’t know where the rose garden is, it’s between State Street and High Street on the Forest Avenue side of the Oaks and just across State Street from the Farmers’ Market which makes it a convenient place to exercise and buy food.

-COST: Free – donations welcome!

Professional Tai Chi instructor Karen Morency is great at bringing folks in after a lesson has begun, so don’t be afraid to jump in if you’re running late!

See you there?

Date Change for Maine Public Radio talk and performance by the Slants

Dear CAFAM members,

In May, CAFAM sponsored a performance by Asian-American dance-rock band The Slants, led by Simon Tam, at the Space Gallery in Portland. The band is known not only for their music, but for winning the right to keep the name of their band in a legal case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Date correction:

Maine Public Radio will air the talk and performance: “Slanted: How an Asian American Film Troublemaker took on the Supreme Court,” on Sunday evening July 28th at 7pm.
