The Disembodied Voice with Howl Space

Wednesday, October 21st
7pm
$10 Tickets for personalized feedback HERE
Stream for free at TWITCH.TV/OKNO1STREAM

“howl”

Join us on Wednesday, October 21st at 7pm for The Disembodied Voice, an experiment in voice projection through the net with Howl Space.

Voices floating in the ether, being born from the reticle of a speaker, disembodied voices crawling in our ears. Are these voices really bodiless? Gregory Whitehead (VoiceArts Radio Station) states that a voice always recreates a body. In our crazed overloaded zoom insanity of a semi-lockdown how can we connect to our bodies, how can we physicalize the body of the other from the web into our space. This workshop explores voice embodiment and projection through the net.

Requirements!

Have a space in which you are able to move and extend the arms
Comfortable clothes
Water
If possible, bluetooth headphones

$10 Tickets include the zoom link for personalized feedback throughout the workshop, but a free live stream will be available at https://www.twitch.tv/okno1stream for those who wish to participate without feedback. Please email info@okno.one with any questions!

About OK #1

OK #1 is an empty storefront located at 5414 East 11th St, in Tulsa, OK. The goal is to provide a simple space for ideas that wouldn't otherwise have a home in Tulsa.

On that note, if you would like to support future projects at OK #1, you can send us money at https://www.paypal.me/okno1. All donations* are exclusively reserved for artist fees, every $300 raised is an artist paid!

*As far as we know, "donations" are not tax deductible. OK #1 is a subsidiary of Pharma Corp LLC, which is in turn a shell corporation for the artist Lucas Wrench, who ultimately determines OK #1's programming schedule based on arbitrary curatorial preference.

How and When to Lawyer Up: Legal Resources for Artists with Naima Lowe and Sarah Lippek

Wednesday, June 3rd
7 - 8:30pm
$5-15 Suggested Donation to participate in zoom chat directly
Free Stream at TWITCH.TV/OKNO1STREAM ($5 suggested donation)

“lawyrup”

Artist Naima Lowe has partnered with author/lawyer Sarah Lippek to offer a livestream workshop on legal considerations for artists, authors, performers and other creative professionals.

Proceeds go to Tulsa, OK based artists relief projects.

As artists our work is essential to preserving, creating, and transmitting culture, and offering much needed comfort and commentary during turbulent times. However, too often we’re undervalued, underpaid, exploited and treated as though we are expendable by the institutions that we contract with. One way to address this is to educate ourselves on the legal issues that impact our industry and develop a stronger understanding of how to access and utilize legal resources.

During this 90 minute session we’ll discuss our own experiences navigating legal systems, discuss common issues in art law, and offer guidance on how to actually find and hire the right lawyer. We’ll take some time for questions and share links to organizations and information that can help you with your legal concerns.

Find the stream at TWITCH.TV/OKNO1STREAM ($5 suggested donation) or participate in the zoom chat directly by purchasing tickets through eventbrite. $5-15 Suggested Donation

Financial Disclosure:

This project is supported by Tulsa, OK based art/event space OK#1. OK#1 offers a $300 stipend to cover artist fees, which in this case go towards the time to research and organize this event. The funds that we raise through ticket sales will go towards proving professional live-captioning. All additional proceeds will go towards Tulsa, OK based artist relief projects.

This performance is part of a larger body of work, titled The Visitors about the artist’s experience growing up in the California Desert.

Join us at OK #1 on Sunday, January 26th at 8pm for Feminism and the Final Girl a tribute to 80s horror
with Tulsa-based writer Kris Rose.
In this autobiographical clip-show, Kris walks us through some 80s horror classics, and how their blood-soaked "victims" shaped young-Kris' ideas of feminism.

"Growing up in a small town in Oklahoma as a weird child from a crazy home, I found role models few and far between.
I mostly escaped my dreary and sometimes terrifying existence by watching tons of movies, mostly horror movies.
In this genre I found life lessons about being a woman, surviving horrible circumstances beyond your control, and how to spot creeps at a thousand yards.
Join me for an evening of clips and observations from some of my very favorite movies that influenced my idea of feminism as a young girl.
Featured movies include Hellraiser and Hellraiser II, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Waxworks, Night of the Demon, and a few more surprises."
