Bunnell Street Arts Center is pleased to announce that Cosmic Agents continues with support from Homer Foundation’s Willow fund. Cosmic Agents is Bunnell’s recent initiative to connect and support emerging leaders in Homer with programs that foster creative expression, critical dialogue, networking and professional development. Homer Foundation awarded Bunnell $2,500 to support presenter fees, food and gas reimbursement for several Cosmic Agents programs in the next six months.
The first of these exciting programs was Brave New Alaskan Voices, award-winning spoken word performers from Anchorage. With the goal of sparking a spoken word team from Homer, Bunnell sponsored two workshops by BNAV at the R.E.C. Room and two performances, at Homer High and K-Bay Caffe.
The next Cosmic Agents event is Kurva Choir, Dec. 8. Described as “Experimental chamber music. Naked. Fragile. Connected. Transcendent,” Kurva Choir is a touring ensemble featuring original compositions for violin, cello and bass. Bunnell provides dinner at 6 p.m. for Cosmic Agents and invites discussion about how we can help Homer’s emerging leaders ages 20ish to 40ish with questions such as “What kind of workshops do you seek?” and “What kind of opportunities do you crave?” Dinner and discussion at Bunnell is followed by Kurva Choir in concert at 7 p.m., open to everyone.
Each Cosmic Agents occasion is an open forum for critical, creative dialogue and networking among young creatives of diverse backgrounds and interests. Look out for more exciting, educational Cosmic Agents events this winter. Thank you, Homer Foundation, for fostering Bunnell’s innovation and risk in presenting programs for Homer’s emerging leaders.
