Proto and Process: History Truck Mid-Cycle in Chinatown/North
Opening Friday, January 8, 2016
5 p.m.-8 p.m.

This January, join the Philadelphia Public History Truck for a midyear exhibition revealing the process behind this mobile museum’s community-engaged curatorial approach. Since August, History Truck’s team has been collaborating with community members in Chinatown North to develop a mobile exhibition launching in June 2016 about neighborhood notions of home and the history of homelessness. During the Fall, Truck curator Erin Bernard led a class of Spark-Fuel-Ignite graduate students from the University of the Arts, String Theory Charter School, Science Leadership Academy at Beeber, and Hallahan Catholic School for Girls in design thinking and on the ground creative work at Asian Arts Initiative and the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission. During January, the Truck extends its conversation to Chinatown stakeholders through a Memory Potluck in collaboration with Space 1026 and the Philadelphia Chinatown Development Corporation on Saturday, January 23rd at 6 p.m. Contribute and build with us as we ready ourselves for the research and fabrication!

Saber the Light Sunday December 6th





















1:00pm – 4:00pm at Space 1026


Build your own controllable and programmable DIY light saber from scratch. There will also be Yogagami, the Japanese art of folding paper into a Yoda. Sign up for the workshop here!

The event is all ages but is strongly suggested that Padwans partner up with their Jedi Masters (Kids bring a Parent or Guardian) It is also $35 per parent/child team, and you will complete one saber together

All the materials needed to make your very own Saber are included in the class price of $35 , including a laser cut saber, the LEDs, button, battery, and Arduino. All proceeds generated will be donated to Space 1026.

At the heart of the Project is the atmel attiny85 8 bit microprocessor. You might know it in its much more expensive version as the Arduino. No soldering will be involved as the majority of the project is made with jumper wires, a tiny breadboard and the wonders of the hot glue gun. For more advanced Jedis’ who are interested in learning the force fundamentals, we will be offering an explanation of how to program your own attiny85’s at home by using an Arduino Uno!!!

“Vanessa Renwick’s films reveal the hidden stories & secret lives that define our great national weirdness, imbued with the radical curiosity and vision of a true pioneer.” Todd Haynes filmmaker

Filmmaker Vanessa Renwick comes to Space 1026 for the first time since 2002, on her “NSEW Film Tour”! She will present a collection of her amazing short experimental and documentary film work. Without fail, the work is intense, hard to pin down, and even harder to forget.

These short, personal constructions demonstrate a wide range of formal approaches and subjects that include nuclear power, hitchhiking, Toxic Shock, wolves, jellyfish, and a taste of the wild west, be it a horse fighting a bear, a homoerotic rodeo or the gentrification of Portland.

SUNDAY October 18th
Space 1026
1026 Arch Street 2nd floor

Films feature with scores by Sam Coomes, Tara Jane ONeil, Lori Goldston, Jef Brown, Donovan Skirvin, Johnee Eschelman, Chris Sands and more!

Vanessa will do a Q&A after the screening. DON’T MISS THIS RARE VISIT!!!!
