Civic Media Center Board of Directors Statement

Published Robbie - Tue, 04/22/2014 - 4:02pm
The Civic Media Center Board of Directors supports all efforts to increase democracy in our community and workplaces. We also are interested and invested in the success of every member of the South Main Arts Block. As such, we want to see the Citizen's Co-op succeed and stand with the members who are working to increase democracy within it. We also support the rights of workers to organize as they see fit, including the Citizen's Co-op Workers' Union efforts. We felt the need to send this statement of solidarity and hope for the future of the Co-op both as neighbors and as representatives of an organization that serves as a resource for the Gainesville community.

"Into Eternity"

Published Robbie - Mon, 04/21/2014 - 5:41pm

Every day, the world over, large amounts of high-level radioactive waste created by nuclear power plants is placed in interim storages, which are vulnerable to natural disasters, man-made disasters, and to societal changes. In Finland the world's first permanent repository is being hewn out of solid rock - a huge system of underground tunnels - that must last 100,000 years, as this is how long the waste remains hazardous.

Once the waste has been deposited and the repository is full, the facility is to be sealed off and never opened again. Or so we hope, but can we ensure that? And how is it possible to warn our descendants of the deadly waste we left behind? How do we prevent them from thinking they have found the pyramids of our time, mystical burial grounds, hidden treasures? Which languages and signs will they understand? And if they understand, will they respect our instructions? While gigantic monster machines dig deeper and deeper into the dark, experts above ground strive to find solutions to this crucially important radioactive waste issue to secure mankind and all species on planet Earth now and in the near and very distant future.

Runtime- 75 minutes

Zinester Reading and Potluck

Published Robbie - Thu, 04/17/2014 - 2:39pm
 
Join traveling zinester Nicki Yowell, founder for Self-Publishers of Chicago (SPOC) and creator of 'Za the Pizza Zine, for a "good" Friday featuring community dialogue and, most importantly, food. 
 
Bring a potluck snack to share and a piece of prose to read. You can go the thematic route and dish on food or, really, any subject. We'll kick off the night with a munch-down then have performances from Nicki before we open the floor for audience readings. Then, we'll close the night out with some brainstorming focusing on building connections in the zinester community. 
 
Bon Appetit! And there will be pizza.
