Lateral Mobility: Creative Works about Getting By

Thursday, August 16, 2012, 7:00 pm, $10

A farewell to Kara Herold! and Just two days later, she’ll be on her way to Syracuse University to start her new career as Assistant Professor of AV tech — er, Film and Video production.

And in the true hustling spirit of independent art-making, you can both celebrate Kara’s 20+ years in the SF media arts community AND help her raise funds for her current multimedia live-cinema project, Warrior 3: A Tale of Meager Transcendence.

You will also enjoy readings, films, and performances by Anjali Sundaram, Monica Nolan, Lynn Peril, Christy Chan, Monica Bhatnagar, Keith Wilson, and Gibbs Chapman. Finally, Kara will show excepts from Warrior 3.

Did we mention there’ll be FREE BEVERAGE ? And the chance to win some career advice? And to celebrate Kara’s old and new careers!

And say good-bye.
