Community Yoga Class
Great for beginners and those who want to get back to basics and breathe. Begin with a gentle warm up, followed by a Hatha sequence to build strength and flexibility. End with a guided relaxation. Please bring your own yoga mat, wear comfy clothes and prepare to be barefoot. $5 donation per session / $25 for six-week session (pre-paid). Every Monday.

Slightly Dangerous Drawing Club
Tuesdays once a month, be part of a daring drawing team and contribute your work to an eventual exhibition.

Tuesday Improvisational
If you’d like to learn about working with sound, get paired up with a more experienced sound artist. Tuesday Improvisational provides access to equipment and space to try new sonic ideas in a collaborative setting — an open experience for working with sound as a material in the arts.

Circle Tone
Get exposed to electronic media in a group setting (“circle tone” is an anagram of “electronic”). Events will range from listening to prerecorded works by local and international artists, to viewing videos and documentaries about sound and art.

Game Night
Check your devices at the door, and get ready for some analog fun: ping pong, badminton, dancing. Come move with friends! Second Thursday of the month.

Latino Immersion
Immerse yourself in the Spanish language through a variety of experiences: film, dialogue, reading, music and food. Both English and Spanish speakers welcome.

Public Meeting
Big Car invites you to share ideas, pitch a partnership with Big Car, get feedback on your idea, or meet new collaborators. Every Thursday at 1 pm.

Saturday at Listen Hear
Drop to experience sound art. Each month we introduce a new hands-on project relating to sound, ranging from simple modes of creation to building electronic circuitry. Great for any age! Every Saturday.

Quakers Meeting
Sit in silence with strangers and friends in response to a common visual stimulus.
